Tower.
  • A strongly-fortified place 12 miles from Pelusium, in the north of Egypt (Jeremiah 44:1; 46:14 ). This word is rendered "tower" in Ezekiel 29:10 , but the margin correctly retains the name Migdol, "from Migdol to Syene;" i.e., from Migdol in the north to Syene in the south, in other words, the whole of Egypt.

  • A place mentioned in the passage of the Red Sea (Exodus 14:2; Numbers 33:7,8 ). It is probably to be identified with Bir Suweis, about 2 miles from Suez.
