Engedi or Engedi:

(fount of the kid) a town in the wilderness of Judah (Joshua 15:62) on the western shore of the Dead Sea (Ezekiel 47:10). Its original name was Hazezon‐tamar, on account of the palm groves which surrounded it (2 Chronicles 20:2). Its site is about the middle of the western shore of the lake, at the fountain of Ain Jidy, from which the place gets its name. It was immediately after an assault upon the "Amorites that dwelt in Hazezon‐tamar," that the five Mesopotamian kings were attacked by the rulers of the plain of Sodom (Genesis 14:7 compare 2 Chronicles 20:2). Saul was told that David was in the "wilderness of Engedi;" and he took "three thousand men, and went to seek David and his men upon the rocks of the wild goats. " (1 Samuel 24:1-4). The vineyards of Engedi were celebrated by Solomon (Solomon 1:14).
