Lehi

Judges 15:9; Judges 15:14; Judges 15:19 (where translated "in Lehi"), Hebrew "the Lehi." (See EN HAKKORE, "the spring"; Ramath Lehi was the eminence.) Lihiy strictly is the Hebrew for "jawbone"; LEHI the name of the place. God did not make water to flow out of the tooth socket of the jawbone which Samson threw away, to slake his thirst, but "cleft an hollow place (maqtesh; Zephaniah 1:11) in Lehi," from whence" water" miraculously "came out." In Judah, between Philistia and the cliff Etam, now Beit Likiyeh, a village on the northern side of the wady Suleiman; at the entrance of the hill country of Judah, the outermost stronghold toward the S.
