ab´don ( עבדּון , 'abhdōn , perhaps "service"): One of the four Levitical cities in the tribe of Asher (Joshua 21:30; 1 Chronicles 6:74 ). Probably the same with Ebron (in the King James Version "Hebron") in Joshua 19:28 , where some copies have the reading Abdon. Now called Abdeh, a few miles from the Mediterranean and about fifteen miles south of Tyre.
