Madmen (1)

A town of Moat, whose doom Jeremiah (Jeremiah 48:2) foretells. Playing on the similarly sounding Hebrew word for silence, damam , "thou city of silence (or Madmen) shalt be brought to silence" (Isaiah 15:1); in Isaiah 25:10, "Moab ... trodden down for the dunghill" (Μadmenah ), or as the Hebrew text (kethib ), "in the waters of Madmenah," evidently alludes to Madmen, with a play on its meaning "dunghill," the lowest stage of degradation.
