HAROD:

Name of a well beside which Gideon and his army encamped on the morning of the day which ended in the rout of the Midianites (Judges vii. 1), and where the test of the people by their mode of drinking apparently took place (ib. 4-8). Harod was situated south of the Hill of Morch (the present Jabal Dahi), where the Midianites were encamped in the valley of Jezreel. It is now called 'Ain Jalud.
