STRONGS NT 964: Βηθεσδά
Βηθεσδά, , indeclinable (Chaldean חֶסְדָּא בֵּית, i. e. house of mercy, or place for receiving and caring for the sick), Bethesda, the name of a pool near the sheep-gate at Jerusalem, the waters of which had curative powers: John 5:2 [here L marginal reading WH marginal reading read Βηθσαϊδά, T WH text Βηθζαθά (which see)].
What locality in the modern city is its representative is not clear; cf. Winers RWB under the word; On the recent identification of the pool ('twin pools') of Bethesda, near the church of St. Anne, see Pal. Explor. Fund for July, 1888.

Appendix at the passage]), for Rec. βηθεσδά, which see. [Cf. Kautzsch, Gram. d. Bibl.-Aram. p. 9.]
