Nain

NAIN (nā'ĭn, Gr. Nain). Modern Nein, a village of Galilee. Though unwalled, it had gates, near which Jesus raised a widow’s son from death (Luke.7.11-Luke.7.17). The situation is beautiful, on the NW slope of the [[Hill of Moreh]], known as Little Hermon. Eastward are ancient rock-hewn tombs. The view is wide, across the plains NW to Mount Carmel; north to the hills behind Nazareth, six miles (ten km.) away; and NE past [[Mount Tabor]] to the snowy heights of Mount Hermon. To the south is [[Mount Gilboa]].
