Ahr´muh-ged´uhn; Heb., “Mt. Megiddo”

The location of the final cosmic battle between the forces of good and evil. The word occurs only in (Rev 16:16) as a Greek transliteration of a possibly Hebrew term. However, no such term appears elsewhere in Hebrew, and there is no mountain known to ancient or modern geographers by that name. Suggested translations therefore have included “city of Megiddo,” “land of Megiddo,” “mount of assembly,” “city of desire,” and “his fruitful mountain.”
