(Eshʹcol) [Cluster [of Grapes]].
2. A wadi or torrent valley, probably located a short distance N of Hebron. It was from this valley that the Israelite spies carried off a large cluster of grapes, and the vineyards in this area are still noted for the high quality of their grapes. (Nu 13:23, 24; 32:9; De 1:24) The name possibly resulted from this event during the spying trip.
