Be'er Sheva in the Bible and Today ✡ "Avraham Planted A Tamarisk At Be’er Sheva" - Israel365

Avraham planted a tamarisk at Be’er Sheva, and invoked there the name of Hashem, the Everlasting God
Genesis 21:33 (The Israel Bible™)

וַיִּטַּע אֶשֶׁל בִּבְאֵר שָׁבַע וַיִּקְרָא־שָׁם בְּשֵׁם יְהוָה אֵל עוֹלָם
Hear the verse in Hebrew

va-yi-TA E-shel biv-AYR SHA-va va-YIK-ra SHAM b’-SHAYM a-do-NAI AYL o-LAM

Be'er Sheva in the Bible and Today

Be'er Sheva is one of the first cities in the Land of Israel mentioned in the Torah (Bible). The name Be’er Sheva (באר שבע), is made up of two Hebrew words.  Be’er (באר) means ‘well', and the second part of the word is made up of the root sheva ש-ב-ע, which means both ‘seven’ and ‘oath'. Thus, Be’er Sheva can mean either ‘well of the seven’ or ‘well of the oath.’ Modern day Be'er Sheva is a thriving city and home to a diverse community of Israelis. The Ethiopian schoolgirls pictured above are harvesting crops from a field in one of Be'er Sheva's many agricultural areas.
