Mig'dal-gad (Heb. Migdal'-Gad, מַגדִּלאּגָּד, tower of fortune; Sept. Μαγδαλγδά), a town in the plain of Judah, mentioned between Hadashah 'and Dilean (Jos 15:37); probably the el-Mejdel a short distance northeast of Ascalon (Schwarz, Palest. page 103; Van de Velde, Memoir, page 334). It is a prosperous village, encircled by luxuriant orchards and olive groves, and fields unsurpassed in fertility. Among the houses are many traces of antiquity-large hewn stones and broken columns. Some three miles south- east of Mejdel is the village of Jenin, which may perhaps be the Zenan noted by Joshua. in the group with Migdal-gad; and ten miles distant in the same direction are the ruins of Lachish and Eglon (Porter, Hand-book, page 261, 272).
