Ziklag
        (winding), a place which possesses a special interest from its having been the residence and the private property of David. It is first mentioned in the catalogue of the towns of Judah in Jos 15:31 and occurs, in the same connection among the places which were allotted out of the territory of Judah to Simeon. Jos 19:5 We next encounter it in the possession of the Philistines 1Sa 27:6 when it was, at David's request, bestowed upon him by Achish king of Gath. He resided there for a year and four months. 1Sa 27:6,7; 30:14,26; 1Ch 12:1,20 It was there he received the news of Saul's death. 2Sa 1:1; 4:10 He then relinquished it for Hebron. 2Sa 2:1 Ziklag is finally mentioned as being reinhabited by the people of Judah after their return from captivity. Ne 11:28 The situation of the town is difficult to determine, and we only know for certain that it was in the south country.
