Beth Dagon

BETH DAGON (bĕth' dā'gŏn, house of Dagon). A town in the Shephelah of Judah (Josh.15.41), five miles (eight km.) from Lydda, and identified as Khirbet Dajun. The name suggests worship of the Philistine god Dagon, revealing how far such worship went beyond Philistine territory. This name was used also of a town on the border of Asher (Josh.19.27).
