Endor (house-fountain); a town of Galilee, assigned to Manasseh, although lying beyond the limits of that tribe (). It is mentioned in connection with the victory of Deborah and Barak (); but is chiefly memorable as the abode of the sorceress whom Saul consulted on the eve of the battle in which he perished (, sq.). The name is not found in the New Testament; but in the time of Eusebius and Jerome the place still existed as a large village, four miles south of Mount Tabor. At this distance, on the northern slope of the lower ridge of Hermon, a village with this name still exists.
