Where Camels Kneel
by Wayne Blank
"I made me pools of water"
"And The Lord spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of water, that they may become blood; and that there may be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood, and in vessels of stone." (Exodus 7:19 KJV) [see also The Ten Plagues]
Examples of pools in the land of Israel (see also Bible Places)
"And Joab the son of Zeruiah, and the servants of David, went out, and met together by the pool of Gibeon: and they sat down, the one on the one side of the pool, and the other on the other side of the pool." (2 Samuel 2:13 KJV)
"Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had."
And in Prophecy:
"The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose ... And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of Dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes." (Isaiah 35:1,7 KJV)
