Shiloah, Waters of

Additional Links
(sshi' loh' uh) Place name meaning, “being sent.” Waters supplying Jerusalem diverted from the Gihon spring and representing God's supply making reliance on foreign kings unnecessary (Isaiah 8:6 ). It differs from the Shiloah Tunnel Hezekiah built (2 Kings 20:20 ). The background may be anointing of kings at the Gihon (1 Kings 1:33-40 ), thus implying rejection of God's kingship represented through His anointed king.
