Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

דָּן (“judge”), [Dan], pr. name

(1) of a son of Jacob, and of the tribe bearing his name; the boundaries of whose land are described, -Josh. 19:4048. [Whence the Gentile noun דָּנִי Judges 13:2 ].

(2) of a town on the northern limit of Palestine (otherwise called לַיִשׁ), Joshua 19:47; Judges 18:29, which took its name from a colony of the Danites. In the words דָּנָה יַעַן 2 Samuel 24:6, there appears to be a transcriptural error, and we should probably read יַעַד. Vulg. silvestria.

[For וְדָן see under.]
