Migdal-Gad

Additional Links

MIGDAL-GAD. A town in the Shephçlah, in the territory of Judah ( Joshua 15:37 ), which cannot be identified with any certainty. Guthe suggests Khirbet el-Mejdeleh , about S miles S. of Belt Jibrîn, with remains of buildings, cisterns, and rock-hewn tombs; or Khirbet el-Mejdel , about 14 miles S. of Beit Jibrîn, with extensive ruins, etc. Warren (Hastings’ DB [Note: Dictionary of the Bible.] ) suggests el-Mejdel , a thriving village 2 1 / 2 miles N.E. of Ashkelon. The name ‘Tower of Gad’ probably points to its having been a seat of idolatry, where the Canaanites worshipped Gad ‘Good Luck’ or ‘Fortune.’
