Allon


Allon, a large strong tree of some description, probably an oak.

1. Allon, more accurately Elon, a place named among the cities of Naphtali. Josh. 19:33. Probably the more correct construction is to take it with the following word, i.e., “the oak by Zaanannim.” [Elon.]

2. Allon-bachuth (oak of weeping), the tree under which Rebekah’s nurse, Deborah, was buried. Gen. 35:8.
