Migdol [N] [H] [S]


  • A strongly-fortified place 12 miles from Pelusium, in the north of Egypt ( Jeremiah 44:1 ; 46:14 ). This word is rendered "tower" in Ezekiel 29:10 , but the margin correctly retains the name Migdol, "from Migdol to Syene;" i.e., from Migdol in the north to Syene in the south, in other words, the whole of Egypt.

  • A place mentioned in the passage of the Red Sea ( Exodus 14:2 ; Numbers 33:7 Numbers 33:8 ). It is probably to be identified with Bir Suweis, about 2 miles from Suez.
