 Eshcol
    bunch; brave. (1.) A young Amoritish chief who joined Abraham in
    the recovery of Lot from the hands of Chedorlaomer (Gen. 14:13,
    24).
      (2.) A valley in which the spies obtained a fine cluster of
    grapes (Num. 13:23, 24; "the brook Eshcol," A.V.; "the valley of
    Eshcol," R.V.), which they took back with them to the camp of
    Israel as a specimen of the fruits of the Promised Land. 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.
