Beth Dagon

Resource Toolbox

1. A town in the plain (shephelah ) of Judah.

2. A town on the border of Asher (Joshua 19:27). The name, implying the presence of a house to Dagon, the Philistine idol shows how this worship extended itself beyond the Philistine territory, probably during the time of the Philistine overrunning of the Israelites' land W. of the Jordan from Michmash on the S. to Gilboa on the N., the latter retiring to Gad and Gilead (1 Samuel 13:5-7; 1 Samuel 13:17-18; 1 Samuel 29:1; 1 Samuel 31:1).
