(2) One of the twelve tribes of Israel; its territory lay southwest of Ephraim. Because it was so restricted the tribe moved to Lais, a city in Palestine on the slope of Mount Hermon, which they destroyed and rebuilt and called Dan (Judges 18).

(3) The Death and the Ploughman city mentioned above, Death and the Married near the modern Banias. The expression "Dan to Bersabee" was used to designate the whole extent of Palestine.
