Beer-lahai-roi

be-er-la-hi’-roi, be-er-la-hi-ro’-i (be’er lachai ro’i, "well of the Living One that seeth me"): "A fountain of water in the wilderness," "the fountain in the way to Shur" (Ge 16:7-14). It was the scene of Hagar’s theophany, and here Isaac dwelt for some time (Ge 16:7 f; 24:62; 25:11). The site is in The Negeb between Kadesh and Bered (Ge 16:14). Rowland identifies the well with the modern `Ain Moilaihhi, circa 50 miles South of Beersheba and 12 miles West of `Ain Kadis. Cheyne thinks that Hagar’s native country, to which she was fleeing and from which she took a wife for Ishmael, was not Egypt (mitsrayim), but a north Arabian district called by the Assyrians Mucri (Encyclopedia Biblica).
