The tribe of Dan had been unable to conquer the territory assigned to them (Judges 1:34). Consequently, they sent a delegation northward to find a suitable location, eventually settling on a northern coastal city which they conquered and renamed Dan, (Judges 18:27-29). This was Israel's northernmost city. Beersheba, in Judah, was the southernmost city, giving rise to the proverbial expression, "from Dan to Beersheba" (Judges 20:1). The fact that this city of Dan is mentioned in Judges 5:17 is one indication that the events of Judges 17-21 occurred very early in the period of the judges.
