(muh' huh neh-dan) Hebrew term meaning “camp of Dan.” During the period of the judges the tribe of Dan lacked a permanent inheritance in the Promised Land (Judges 18:1 ) and continued to live according to the earlier semi-nomadic pattern. Thus it is not surprising that two places are designated “camp of Dan”: 1. a site between Zorah and Eshtaol where the Lord's Spirit first stirred Samson (Judges 13:25 ). 2 . A site west of Kiriath-jearim where the Danites camped on the way to the hill country of Ephraim (Judges 18:12 ).
