ENDOR, an ancient town of Palestine, chiefly memorable as the abode of the sorceress whom Saul consulted on the eve of the battle of Gilboa, in which he perished (I Sam. xxviii. 5-25). According to a psalmist (Ps. lxxxiii. 9) it was the scene of the rout of Jabin and Sisera. Although situated in the territory of the tribe of Issachar, it was assigned to Manasseh. In the time of Eusebius and Jerome Endor existed as a large village 5 M. south of Mount Tabor; there is still a poor village of the same name on the slope of Jebel Dahi, near which are numerous caves. For a description of the locality see Stanley, Sinai and Palestine, P. 337.
