(zohuhn) Hebrew name for Egyptian city of Tanis located at San el-Hagar on the Tanitic arm of the Nile. Zoan became capital of Egypt about 1070 B.C. under Smendes I and remained so until 655 B.C. Numbers 13:22 notes that Hebron was seven years older than Zoan, but the exact date when either was built is not known. The prophets used Zoan to refer to the Egyptian government and its activities ( Isaiah 19:11 ,Isaiah 19:11,19:13; Isaiah 30:4; Ezekiel 30:14 ). The psalmist praised God for Exodus miracles near there (Psalm 78:12 ,Psalms 78:12,78:43 ).
