ENAIM

e-na'-im (`enayim, "place of a fountain"; Ainan; Genesis 38:14 (the King James Version "in an open place"; Genesis 38:21 the King James Version "openly")):

A place which lay between Adullam and Timnath; probably the same as Enam (Joshua 15:34). Also mentioned in close connection with Adullam. It was in the Shephelah of Judah. The Talmud (Pesik. Rab. 23) mentions a Kephar Enaim. Conder proposes Khurbet Wady `Alin, which is an ancient site, evidently of great strength and importance, lying between Kh. `Ain Shems and the village of Deir Aban. The ruins crown a lofty and almost isolated hill; the greatest objection to the identification is that there is no fountain at all in the immediate neighborhood. There may have been one in earlier times. See PEF, III, 128.
