Armageddon (är-ma-gĕd'don), the hill, or, perhaps, the city of Megiddo. A symbolical name for the place where a final struggle between the hosts of good and evil must take place. Revelation 16:16. Spelled Har-Magedon in R. V. For an exposition of the apostle's meaning, the reader must be referred to commentaries; it will be sufficient here to say that there is an allusion to that great battle-field where Barak and Gideon conquered, Judges 4:1-24; Judges 5:19; Judges 6:33; Judges 7:1-25; where Saul and Josiah fell, 1 Samuel 29:1; 1 Samuel 31:1-13; 2 Samuel 4:4; 2 Chronicles 35:20-24; the plain of Esdraelon, on the southern border of which Megiddo stood.
