Enon

Enon [H]

(springs ), a place "near to Salim," at which John baptized. ( John 3:23 ) It was evidently west of the Jordan, comp. ( John 3:22 ) with John 3:26 and with John 1:28 and abounded in water. This is indicated by the name, which is merely a Greek version of a Chaldee word signifying "springs." AEnon is given in the Onomasticon as eight miles south of Scythopolis, "near Salem and the Jordan."
