Genesis 21:25  (King James Version)
And Abraham reproved Abimelech because of a well of water, which Abimelech's servants had violently taken away.

26:15-22 29:8 Exodus 2:15-17 ; Judges 1:15 ; Proverbs 17:10 ; 25:9 27:5 Matthew 18:15

Wells of water were of great consequence in those hot countries, especially where the flocks were numerous; because water was scarce, and digging to find it was attended with the expense of much time and labour.

13:7 26:15-22 Exodus 2:16 Exodus 2:17
