(zehm uh ray' ihm) Place name meaning, “twin peaks.” 1. Town allotted to the tribe of Benjamin (Joshua 18:22 ), likely Ras ex-Zeimara about five miles northeast of Bethel. 2. Mountain in the territory of Ephraim where Abijah rebuked Jeroboam (2 Chronicles 13:4 ). The parallel text in 1 Kings 15:7 mentions hostilities between Abijam and Jereboam but not the speech at Zemaraim. The town and mountain may be located in the same place. Some would place the town at khirbet es-Samra four miles north of Jericho.
