Fausset's Bible Dictionary
A station in Israel's march (Numbers 33:18-19): from rethem or retem , the "broom"; KJV "juniper." The same encampment as that at Kadesh (Numbers 13:26). Rithmah is a descriptive epithet, from the broom abounding there; probably applied to the encampment in this neighborhood in the first march toward Canaan, to distinguish it from the second encampment in the same district, but not the same spot, in the 40th year (Numbers 33:36-38; Numbers 13:21-26).
