The Hebrews prized their wells or springs as the chiefest of all their treasure. Hence their contests about them. (See Genesis 26:18-22) The general name they gave a well or spring was beer. Hence Hagar called the well where she had found the Lord's presence eminently blessed, Beer lahai-roi, that is, as the margin of the Bible renders it, "the well of him that liveth and seeth me?" (Genesis 16:14) And hence also we find the name of Beer, a well; joined to words denoting places, such as Beersheba, etc. There is a well eminently spoken of, Numbers 21:16-18. Perhaps the reader may be led by the Holy Ghost to discover much of Christ in this song of Israel.
