(mad man' nuh) Place name meaning, “dung heap.” City in the Negeb assigned to Judah (Joshua 15:31 ), possibly identical with Beth-marcaboth (Joshua 19:5 ). Suggested sites include the modern khirbet umm Demneh and khirbet Tatrit, both in the vicinity of Dharhiriyah. The reference to Shaaph as the father of Madmannah (1 Chronicles 2:49 ) is open to various interpretations: (1) Shaaph (re)founded the city; (2) Shaaph's descendents settled in the city; or (3) Shaaph had a son named Madmannah.
