(fountain of Dor), a place in the territory of Issachar, and yet possessed by Manasseh (Joshua 17:11). En-dor was the scene of the great victory over Sisera and Jabin. It was here that the witch dwelt whom Saul consulted (1 Samuel 28:7). It was known to Eusebius, who describes it was a large village four miles south of Tabor. Here to the north of Jebel Duhy the name still lingers. The distance from the slopes of Gilboa to En-dor is seven or eight miles over difficult ground.
