People's Dictionary of the Bible - Migron

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Migron
MIGRON. One of the places mentioned in Isaiah’s description of the march of the Assyrians on Jerusalem. The direction of the march is from north to south: hence Migron ( Isaiah 10:28 ) lay north of Michmash (wh. see), and north of the Wady es-Suwçnît , which is the ‘pass’ of Isaiah 10:29 . The name perhaps survives in Makrûn , a ruined site situated a mile or two N.W. of Makhmâs (Michmash). In 1 Samuel 14:2 Samaul, whose army was encamped south of the Wady es-Suwçnît , is said to have dwelt in ‘the uttermost part of Geba (so read) under the pomegranate tree which is in Migron.’ Probably ‘in Migron’ should rather be translated ‘in the threshing-floor’; if not, we must infer that there were two places not many miles apart, one north and the other south of the Wady es-Suwçnît , bearing the same name. This southern Migron has not been identified.
