Jaa'ikan (Heb. Yaakan', יִעֲקָן , wrester; Sept. has two names, Ι᾿ωακὰν καὶ Οὐκάμ, other copies simply Ακάν or Ι᾿ακίμ; Vulg. Jacan), the last named of the sons of Ezer, son of Seir the Horite (1Ch 1:42, where it is Anglicized "Jakan"); called in the parallel passage (Ge 36:27) by a simpler form of the same name, AKAN. B.C. ante 1964. His descendants appear to have settled in the northern part of the Arabah. He was the forefather of the Bene-Jaakan (q.v.), round whose wells the children of Israel twice encamped, once after they left Moseroth, and just before they went on to Hor-Hagidgad (Nu 33:30-32), and again in a reverse direction after they left Kadesh-barnea, and before they reached Mount Hor or Mosera (De 10:6).
