"An archer, teacher; fruitful. (1.) A Canaanite probably who" "inhabited the district south of Shechem, between Mounts Ebal and" "Gerizim, and gave his name to the "plain" there (Gen. 12:6)." "Here at this "plain," or rather (R.V.) "oak," of Moreh, Abraham" built his first altar in the land of Palestine; and here the Lord appeared unto him. He afterwards left this plain and moved "southward, and pitched his tent between Bethel on the west and" "Hai on the east (Gen. 12:7, 8)."

"Probably identical with "little Hermon," the modern Jebel" "ed-Duhy, or perhaps one of the lower spurs of this mountain. It" is a gray ridge parallel to Gilboa on the north; and between the "two lay the battle-field, the plain of Jezreel (q.v.), where" Gideon overthrew the Midianites (Judg. 7:1-12).
