A town of Manesseh, thought within the bounds of Issachar. It had been a royal city of the Canaanites, and they long retained a foothold in it, Joshua 12:21 ; 17:11 ; Judges 1:27 . It lay in the southwest border of the plain of Esdraelon, near the Kishon, which is probably intended by "the waters of Megiddo," mentioned in the song of Deborah and Barak as the scene of their victory, Judges 5:19,21 . In the reign of Solomon, Megiddo was fortified, 1 Kings 9:15 . Here king Ahaziah died, and King Josiah was defeated, slain, and sorely lamented, 2 Kings 9:27 ; 23:29 ; Zechariah 12:11 . Robinson identifies it with a village now called Lejun, the Legio of the Romans.
