Eshcol


Bunch; brave. (1.) A young Amoritish chief who joined Abraham in "the recovery of Lot from the hands of Chedorlaomer (Gen. 14:13," 24). "(2.) A valley in which the spies obtained a fine cluster of "grapes (Num. 13:23, 24; "the brook Eshcol," A.V.; "the valley of" "Eshcol," R.V.), which they took back with them to the camp of" Israel as a specimen of the fruits of the Promised Land. On their way back they explored the route which led into the south (the Negeb) by the western edge of the mountains at Telilat "el-`Anab, i.e., "grape-mounds", near Beersheba. "In one of these" "extensive valleys, perhaps in Wady Hanein, where miles of" "grape-mounds even now meet the eye, they cut the gigantic" "clusters of grapes, and gathered the pomegranates and figs, to" show how goodly was the land which the Lord had promised for "their inheritance.", Palmer's Desert of the Exodus."
