Who was Elon?

(1) Elon was a Zebulunite, who judged Israel ten years, and was buried in Aijalon (Jdg 12:11,12).

(2) A son of Zebulun (Gen 46:14; Nu 26:26).

(3) A Hittite whose daughter Esau wedded (Gen 26:34; 36:2).

Elon (2)

An unidentified town in the territory of Dan named between Ithlah and Timnah (Josh 19:43). It is possibly identical with Elon-beth-Hanan which, along with Shaalbim and Bethshemesh, formed one of Solomon's commissariat districts (1 Ki 4:9). Conder has suggested Beit' Anan, about 4 miles Northwest of Neby Samwil: it is quite uncertain.
