  1. ^ Easton on Eshcol. - On their way back they explored the route which led into the south (the Negeb) by the western edge of the mountains at Telilat el-’Anab, i.e., 'grape-mounds', near Beersheba. "In one of these extensive valleys, perhaps in Wady Hanein, where miles of grape-mounds even now meet the eye, they cut the gigantic clusters of grapes, and gathered the pomegranates and figs, to show how goodly was the land which the Lord had promised for their inheritance.", Palmer’s Desert of the Exodus.
  2. ^ The Wycliffe Bible Encyclopedia notes that the valley is still very fruitful.
