Nephtoah: Opened, a fountain and a stream issuing from it on the border between
Judah and Benjamin
(Joshua 15:8,9; 18:15) It has been identified with 'Ain
Lifta, a spring about 2 1/2 miles north-west of Jerusalem. Others,
however, have identified it with 'Ain' Atan, on the south-west of
Bethlehem, whence water is conveyed through "Pilate's aqueduct" to the
Haram area at Jerusalem.
