Ain in Hebrew Means Eye or Fountain Seen in Canaanite Geography for Streams at Harran & Jordan’s Ain Ghazal


Apparently because eyes emit tears, the Hebrew word for eye or fountain is ain, its meaning water-well in Arabic, and in the name of the ancient site near Amman, Jordan called Ain Ghazal at the headwaters of the Zarqa river (the biblical Jabbok river), also Ain al Arus at the headwaters of the Balikh river of far northern Syria, the plain of Harran where Hebrews such as Abraham coexisted with Canaanites who built star-gazing structures such as Gobekli Tepe nearby.
