En Gedi
   

This is water running from the natural springs upstream at En Gedi.

In First Samuel David continued to flee from Saul. David went from one hiding place in Judah to another. In First Samuel 24:1 it says, "After Saul returned from pursuing the Philistines, he was told, 'David is in the Desert of En Gedi." This is the location that David end up hiding in a cave that Saul was also using.

Realize that we are surrounded by the wastelands by the Dead Sea. The Dead Sea is about a mile to the east of here.
