(Heb. Yiron', יַרְאוֹן , place of alarm; Sept. Ι᾿ερών ), one of the "fenced" cities of Naphtali, mentioned between En-hazor and Migdal-el (Joshua 19:38). De Saulcy (Narrat. 2, 382) thinks it may be the Yaroun marked in Zimmerman's map north-west of Safed, the Yaron observed by Dr. Robinson (new ed. of Researches, 3. 61, 62, notes). Van de Velde likewise remarks that it is "now Yarun, a village of Belad Besharah. On the north- east side of the place are the foundations and other remains of the ancient city" (Memoir, p. 322).
