Eglon was a Canaanite city, whose king Debir joined a confederacy against Gibeon when that city made peace with Israel. The five kings involved were slain and Eglon was later conquered and its inhabitants condemned to destruction. It was thereafter included in the territory of the Tribe of Judah. It is believed that Eglon is identical with Tell el-Hesi, about 11 kilometres (6.8 mi) west of Lachish. The ancient name is preserved at the ruins of Khirbet Ajlan, a few km distant.
