This word occurs only once in the Bible (Rev. 16:16). The New Revised Standard Version says “Harmagedon,” instead of “Armageddon.”

Armageddon symbolically designates the place where the “battle of that great day of God Almighty” (verse 14) will be fought. The word actually means the “mount of Megiddo.” It is the scene of the final conflict between Christ and Antichrist.
