Additional Links

Migdol (mĭg'dol), tower. 1. A place near the head of the Red Sea. Exodus 14:2; Numbers 33:7; Numbers 8:2. A fortified city in the northern limits of Egypt toward Palestine. Jeremiah 44:1; Jeremiah 46:14. This name is rendered "tower" in the phrase "from the tower of Syene," R. V. reads "Seveneh," Ezekiel 29:10; Ezekiel 30:6; but the margin correctly has "from Migdol to Syene"—i.e., Syene the most southern border of Egypt, and Migdol the most northern.
