(one of the twelve sons of Israel)..



DAN; (Hebrew: דָּן); meaning "judgment" or "he judged";   was born in Paddan-aram, (Haran), (modern day southeastern Turkey).. He is (obviously), the founder of the Tribe of Dan... Annd hailing from that tribe; came the first Mr. Universe, Samson himself!  COOL STUFF! FoSho!!

In the apocryphal Testaments of the Patriarchs, Dan is portrayed as having hated Joseph, and having been the one that invented the idea of deceiving Jacob by the smearing of Joseph's coat with the blood of a kid.. As for his blessing?? Twas a curse!! 🥶

Q Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.

Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.

S I have waited for thy salvation, O Lord.

T Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last. ~Genesis 49:16-19..

Issshhh!!  Poor Dan!  Howev, the blessing or cursing came as a result of THEIR decisions!! 🥶  I sometimes wonder if they (the sons of Israel), realized the MAJOR significance of their blessings!!   I would think they woulda HAD to!!

He is planted in Beit Shemesh, Israel; in this crypt..
