ELON . (‘terebinth’.) 1. Of the tribe of Zebulun, one of the minor judges ( Judges 12:11-12 ). All that is told of him is simply that he judged Israel for ten years, that he died, and was buried in Elon in Zebulun. 2. A son of Zebulun ( Genesis 46:14 , Numbers 26:26 , where the gentilic name Elonites occurs). 3. A Hittite, the father-in-law of Esau ( Genesis 26:34; Genesis 36:2 ).

ELON . 1. A town in the territory of Dan, now unknown ( Joshua 19:43 ). It is perhaps the same as Elon-beth-hanan ( 1 Kings 4:9 ). 2. An unknown locality in Zebulun ( Judges 12:12 ).
