Abstract This article demonstrates that the Deuteronomist, by inserting "Megiddo" and "Ibleam" in 2 Kgs 9:27-28, gave priority to his theological message over the historical reality, and that a historian therefore must consider theological implications of toponyms when reconstructing a historical event solely based on a description in the Book of Kings.
