Abdon (2)

Resource Toolbox

A city of Asher given to the Levites of Gershom's family: Joshua 21:30; 1 Chronicles 6:74. Hebron is substituted for it in Joshua 19:28. Many manuscripts there read "Abdon"; the Hebrew letters Resh ( ר ) and Daleth ( ד ) are very similar, and therefore often interchanged.
