Aenon

Meaning: springs

This was the name of a place near Salim where John baptized (John 3:23). It may have been near the upper source of the Wady Far'ah, an open valley extending from Mount Ebal to the Jordan. It is full of springs. A place has been found called 'Ainun, four miles north of the springs.
