Teman

Additional Links
(tee' man) Personal and place name meaning, “right side,” that is, “southern.” 1. Edomite clan descended from Esau (Genesis 36:11 , Genesis 36:15; 1 Chronicles 1:36 ). 2 . City of area associated with this clan (Jeremiah 49:7 ,Jeremiah 49:7,49:20; Ezekiel 25:13; Amos 1:12; Obadiah 1:9; Habakkuk 3:3 ). Teman has often been identified with Tawilan, fifty miles south of the Dead Sea just east of Petra, though archaeological evidence does not confirm the site as the principal city of southern Edom. Others understand Teman to designate southern Edom in general. To others the linkage with Dedan (Jeremiah 49:7; Ezekiel 25:13 ) suggests Tema on the Arabian peninsula. See Tema .
