Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

בְּאֵר לַחַי רֹאִי (“well of the life of vision,” i.e. where after the vision of God, my life is nevertheless preserved, comp. Judges 6:22, seq.), pr.n. of a well in the southern borders of Palestine; Genesis 16:14, 24:62 25:11. The etymology above stated is given by the sacred writer himself, Genesis 16:14 [which is of course of absolute authority]; by rejecting the vowels one might have conjectured the name of the well to have been בְּאֵר לְחִירֳאִי “the well of the conspicuous jaw-bone,” i.e. rock (Judges 15:19 ), or region (comp. عَارِضَةُ a jaw-bone, a region).
