Golan: Exile, a city of Bashan
(Deuteronomy 4:43) one of the three cities of refuge
east of Jordan, about 12 miles north-east of the Sea of Galilee
(Joshua 20:8) There are no further notices of it in Scripture. It became
the head of the province of Gaulanitis, one of the four provinces
into which Bashan was divided after the Babylonish captivity, and
almost identical with the modern Jaulan, in Western Hauran, about
39 miles in length and 18 in breath.
