DAN-JAAN . Joab and his officers in taking the census came ‘to Dan-jaan and round about to Zidon’ ( 2 Samuel 24:6 ). No such place is mentioned anywhere else in OT, and it is generally assumed that the text is corrupt. It has indeed been proposed to locate Dan-jaan at a ruin N. of Achzib which is said to bear the name Khan DÃ¢niÃ¢n; but this identification, although accepted by Conder, has not made headway. The reference is more probably to the city of Dan which appears so frequently as the northern limit of the kingdom.
