springs, a place near Salim where John baptized (John 3:23). It was probably near the upper source of the Wady Far'ah, an open valley extending from Mount Ebal to the Jordan. It is full of springs. A place has been found called 'Ainun, four miles north of the springs.
John baptized "in aenon, near to Salim, because there was much water there" (John 3:23).
And John also was baptizing in aenon near Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized.
