But David pursued, he and four hundred men; for two hundred stayed behind, who were so faint that they couldn't go over the brook Besor.

  • Almost 3,000 years ago, 200 of King David's army couldn't bring themselves to leave the Brook Besor - and by the king's order, they still shared in the wealth. In Hebrew, the word besor means "cheery," and a related word, besorah, means "tidings," or pleasant news.

    Real Archaeological Finds
    King David's men weren't the only ones to appreciate the Brook Besor. At the northern tip of the park is a small hill known by the Arabic name, Hirbat Shalala, which offers a wonderful view in return for an easy hike. During World War I, Austrian soldiers fought the Turkish Army here, and in the process discovered an amazing ruin of an ancient Byzantine church with an exquisite mosaic floor. Much of the floor is now on display in Canberra, but the ruins can still be explored.

  • Today, the good news for weary travelers remains the same: Linger as long as you like at the Brook Besor. The beauty of Israel is still God's gift to us all.

    A Watery Oasis
    Today, when you look at the Brook Besor, it's easy to see why lingering there, resting and recuperating, would have been tempting. The watery oasis, with its lush greenery and fascinating wildlife, is a welcome sight, situated as it is in the heart of the arid Negev Desert.

    But David ruled otherwise. "Everything any of us have is a gift from God," he said, and ordered everything divided equally, even among those who had been too weak to cross the Brook Besor. By doing so, he established an important principle of justice, Jewish-style.

THE BROOK BESOR - The Rock Church

His strength regained, David lead his men back to battle, but at Brook Besor, 200 of them gave up completely. But the rest led by David won the battle, got their women back and David chose to play fair – when the men did not want to share their loot with those who did not go back to fight, David stood for justice, saying families did not do that sort of thing and men could not do that, to what the Lord had given them.
