Me-Jar'kon (Hebrews Mey-Hay-yarkon' מֵי הִיִּרקוֹן, waters of yellowness, or clear water; Sept. θάλασα ῾Ιαρακών, Vulg. Mejarcon), a town in the tribe of Dan, mentioned between Gath-rimmon and Rakkon (Jos 19:46); probably so called from a spring in its vicinity. Schwarz (Palest. p. 141) regards the name as equivalent to river of disease (lit. of paleness), and states that there is a " Wady Udshi which descends from the mountains of- Lod" (probably referring to the ravine in the south rear of Ludd), a nearly synonymous epithet, according to him, on the strength of which he is disposed to identify the locality. "It is difficult not to suspect that the name following that of Me-hajjarkon, har-Rakon (A. V. Rakkon), is a mere corrupt repetition thereof, as the two bear a very close similarity to each other, and occur nowhere else".
