nā´kon , ( נכון , nākhōn ; the King James Version Nachon ): The place where Uzzah was smitten for putting forth his hand to steady the ark, hence, called afterward "Perezuzzah" 2 Samuel 6:8; in the parallel passage 1 Chronicles 13:9 we have כּידן , kı̄dhon , and in Josephus (Ant. , VII, iv, 2) Χειδών , Cheidṓn . In 1 Samuel 23:23 the word nakhon occurs, and is translated "of a certainty," margin "with the certainty" or "to a set place"; also in 1 Samuel 26:4 it is translated "of a certainty," margin "to a set place." It is uncertain whether in 1 Samuel 6:6 it is a place-name at all; and no successful attempt has been made to identify either Nacon or Chidon; possibly they are both personal names.
