Mig'dol. (tower). The name of one of two places, on the eastern frontier of Egypt.

1. A Migdol is mentioned in the account of the Exodus, Exodus 14:2; Numbers 33:7-8, near the head of the Red Sea.

2. A Migdol is spoken of by Jeremiah and Ezekiel. The latter prophet mentions it as a boundary-town, evidently on the eastern border. Ezekiel 29:10; Ezekiel 30:6. In the prophecy of Jeremiah, the Jews in Egypt are spoken of as dwelling at Migdol. Jeremiah 44:1. It seems plain, from its being spoken of with Memphis, and from Jews dwelling there, that this Midgol was an important town.
