Enon


E’non (springs), a place “near to Salim,” at which John baptized. John 3:23. It was evidently west of the Jordan, comp. John 3:22 with 26, and with 1:28, and abounded in water. This is indicated by the name, which is merely a Greek version of a Chaldee word signifying “springs.” Ænon is given in the Onomasticon as eight miles south of Scythopolis, “near Salem and the Jordan.”
