1. Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary
   firm-rooted, the most northerly of the five towns belonging to
   the lords of the Philistines, about 11 miles north of Gath. It
   was assigned to Judah (Josh. 13:3), and afterwards to Dan
   (19:43), but came again into the full possession of the
   Philistines (1 Sam. 5:10). It was the last place to which the
   Philistines carried the ark before they sent it back to Israel
   (1 Sam. 5:10; 6:1-8). There was here a noted sanctuary of
   Baal-zebub (2 Kings 1: 2, 3, 6, 16). Now the small village Akir.
   It is mentioned on monuments in B.C. 702, when Sennacherib set
   free its king, imprisoned by Hezekiah in Jerusalem, according to
   the Assyrian record.
