Naamah

("sweetness".)

1. Lamech's daughter by Zillah (Genesis 4:22). The refinement and luxury of Cain's descendants appear in the names of their wives and daughters; as Naamah, Adah ("beauty"), Zillah ("shadow"). Naamah is associated with her brother Tubal-cain, the first worker in brass and iron.

2. The Ammonitess mother of Rehoboam (1 Kings 14:21; 1 Kings 14:31; 2 Chronicles 12:13), one of Solomon's "strange women" (1 Kings 11:1). The Vat. Septuagint makes Naamah daughter of Ana or Hanun, son of Nahash; thus David's war with Hanun terminated in a re-alliance, and Solomon's marriage to Naamah would be about two years before David's death, for Rehoboam the offspring of it was 41 on ascending the throne, and Solomon's reign was 40 years.

3. A town in the "low hill country" of Judah (the shephelah ): Joshua 15:41.
