What is…

Hebrew: עֵין הַקּוֹרֵא —transliteration: En Haqqore —meaning: spring of the caller; fountain of the crier; spring of the one calling

This is the name of the spring in Lehi which burst forth in answer to Samson’s prayer when he was exhausted with the slaughter of the Philistines.

So God split the hollow place that is in Lehi and water came out of it. Then he drank, and his spirit returned, and he revived. Therefore he named it En-hakkore, which is in Lehi to this day. —Judges 15:19 LSB

It has been identified with the spring 'Ayun Kara, near Zoreah (Zorah).
