{Genesis 26:33} And he called 7121 z8799 it Shebah: 7656 therefore x5921 x3651 the name 8034 of the city 5892 [is] Beersheba 884 unto x5704 this x2088 day. 3117
Shebah:
i.e. an oath
therefore:
"Wherefore he called that place Beersheba; because there they sware both of them." {Gen 21:31}
Beersheba:
i.e. the well of the oath, "And they said, We saw certainly that the LORD was with thee: and we said, Let there be now an oath betwixt us, [even] betwixt us and thee, and let us make a covenant with thee;" {Gen 26:28}; This may have been the same city which was called Beer-sheba a hundred years before this, in the time of Abraham; but as the well, from which it had its name originally, was closed up by the Philistines, the name of the place might have been abolished with the well; when, therefore, Isaac re-opened it, he restored the ancient name of the place.
