She said, “Give me a blessing. Since you have set me in the land of the Negev, give me also pools of water.” So he gave her the upper pools and the lower pools. Bible

“Negev.” The Hebrew negev can refer to the Negev in Israel, or “south,” or “dry” (arid).

“pools of water.” These are not “springs” (the Hebrew word for “spring” is different), but “pools.” They could have come from a very slow seeping spring, or been pools that collected a lot of water during the rainy season.
