  2. A place given in the story of Hagar (Genesis 16:14 ). Beer Laḥ ai Roi is there located between Kadesh and Bered. Targumim Onkelos and Yerushalmi regard Bered as Shur Onkelos rendering it "Ḥ agra," which is his usual equivalent for "Shur" (Genesis 16:7 ) while the Jerusalem Targum renders it "Ḥ aluẓ a," which is also "Shur" (Exodus 15:22 ). The site has not been identified.
