MAHANAIM

(may huh nay ihm) Place name meaning, “two camps.” City somewhere in the hill country of Gilead on the tribal borders of Gad and eastern Manasseh (Joshua 13:26,Joshua 13:30). It was a Levitical city (Joshua 21:38). It served as a refuge twice: for Ishbosheth after Saul's death (2 Samuel 2:8-9), and for David when Absalom usurped the throne (2 Samuel 17:24-27). During Solomon's administration, the city served as a district capital (1 Kings 4:14). German archaeologists locate it at tell Heggog, half a mile south of Penuel, while Israelis point to tell edh-Dhabab el Gharbi.
