Harod

Meaning: palpitation

a fountain near which Gideon and his army encamped on the morning of the day when they encountered and routed the Midianites (Judg. 7)

It was south of the hill of Moreh. The present 'Ain Jalud (“Goliath’s Fountain”), south of Jezreel and nearly opposite Shunem, is probably the fountain here referred to (7:4, 5).
