In the Bible, Elon (or Ahialon in Douay–Rheims and some other translations) (Hebrew: אֵילֹן, Modern: Elon, Tiberian: ʼÊlōn, "oak"; Ancient Greek: Αἰλώμ; Latin: Ahialon) is named in the Book of Judges at chapter 12 and verses 11 and 12, as being a member of the Tribe of Zebulun who served as a judge of Israel for ten years, who followed Ibzan and was succeeded by Abdon.  Elon, along with Tola, Jair, Ibzan, and Abdon are only briefly mentioned and appear to the names of clans.
