EKRON

The most northern city of the Philistines, allotted to Judah by Joshua 15:45, but afterwards given to Daniel 12:13, though it does not appear that the Jews ever peaceably possessed it. It is memorable for its connection with the captivity of the ark and its restoration to the Jews, 1 Samuel 5:10 6:1-18. The fly-god was worshipped here, 2 Kings 1:2. Its ruin was foretold, Amos 1:8 Zephaniah 2:4 Zechariah 9:5,7. Robinson found its site at the Moslem village Akir, some ten miles northeast of Ashdod. There are no ruins.
