Sitnah

Name given to a well dug by Isaac’s servants because it was seized by the servants of Abimelech (Gen. 26:2121And they digged another well, and strove for that also: and he called the name of it Sitnah. (Genesis 26:21)). Fürst says it signifies “strife;” Gesenius says “contention,” and in Ezra 4:66And in the reign of Ahasuerus, in the beginning of his reign, wrote they unto him an accusation against the inhabitants of Judah and Jerusalem. (Ezra 4:6), where the same word occurs as a common noun, it is “accusation.”
