Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
HAMMATH (‘hot spring’). 1. ‘Father of the house of Rechab’ ( 1 Chronicles 2:55 ). 2. One of the ‘fenced’ cities of Naphtali ( Joshua 19:35 ), probably the same as Hammon of 1 Chronicles 6:76 and Hammoth-dor of Joshua 21:32 . It is doubtless the Hamata of the Talmud, the Emmaus or Ammathus of Jos. [Note: Josephus.] ( Ant . XVIII. ii. 3), and the modern HammÃ¢m , 35 minutes’ walk S. of Tiberias, famous for its hot baths.
