ESHCOL . 1 . The brother of Mamre and Aner, the Amorite confederates of Abraham, who assisted the patriarch in his pursuit and defeat of Chedorlaomer’s forces ( Genesis 14:13 ; Genesis 14:24 ). He lived in the neighbourhood of Hebron ( Genesis 13:18 ); and possibly gave his name to the valley of Eshcol, which lay a little to the N. of Hebron ( Numbers 13:23 ). 2 . A wady, with vineyards and pomegranates, apparently near Hebron ( Numbers 13:23-24 ; Numbers 32:9 , Deuteronomy 1:24 ). Eshcol is usually rendered ‘bunch of grapes.’ The name has not been recovered.
