NAIN (Ναΐν), a village of Palestine, mentioned by St. Luke as the scene of the raising of the widow's son (7.11). Eusebius places it two miles S. of Mount Tabor, near Endor, in the district of Scythopolis (Onomast. s. vv. Ἠνδώρ and Ναίμ), where a poor village of the same name is found at the present day, on the northern slope of Little Hermon, and a short distance to the W. of ‘Ain-dor. (Robinson, Bib. Res. vol. iii. p. 226.)
