Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

בְּרֵכָה constr. בְּרֵכַת f. a pool, pond, pr. such as camels kneel down to drink at; see הִבְרִיךְ. [בָּרַךְ Hiphil.] (Arab. بِرْكَةُ the cup of a fountain, and a similar reservoir for water; Spanish alberca.) 2 Samuel 2:13, 4:12 Song of Solomon 7:5 fully בְּרֵכַת מַיִם Nahum 2:9; Ecclesiastes 2:6. There were two such ponds to the west of Jerusalem, formed by the waters of the fountain Shiloah [by some other fountain, not Shiloah], “the upper pool,” Isaiah 7:3, called also “the old pool,” Isaiah 22:11, and “the king’s pool,” Nehemiah 2:14, as watering the king’s gardens (Nehemiah 3:15); and “the lower pool,” Isaiah 22:9, which was used for supplying the lower city with water. [“From the upper pool Hezekiah afterwards brought the water to a reservoir within the city, between or within the two walls; i.e. the first and second walls of Josephus, north of Zion; Isaiah 22:11; 2 Kings 20:20; 2 Chronicles 32:30. See Robinson’s Palest. i. p. 483-7.”]
