EN-HAKKORE (‘spring of the partridge’; cf. 1 Samuel 26:20
, Jeremiah 17:11
). The name of a fountain at Lehi ( Judges 15:19
). The narrator (J
) of the story characteristically connects hakkôrç with the word yikrâ (‘he called’) of Judges 15:18
, and evidently interprets ‘En-hakkôrç as ‘the spring of him that called.’ The whole narrative is rather obscure, and the tr.
in some instances doubtful. The situation of En-hakkôrç is also quite uncertain.
