Moreh

Moreh (Mor´eh; Heb., “teacher, oracle-giver”)

1 The Moreh Tree, a terebinth (a large tree resembling an oak) at a sacred site near Shechem where Abram built an altar commemorating God’s appearance to him (Gen 12:6-7; Gen 35:4; Deut 11:30). 2 Moreh Hill—again suggesting a place to receive oracles—the extinct volcano opposite Mt. Gilboa at the east extremity of the Jezreel plain, where Midian encamped against Gideon’s forces (Judg 7:1).
