MADMEN. A place in Moab, which, if the MT [Note: Massoretic Text.] be correct, has not been identified. The name occurs only in Jeremiah 48:1-47 [Gr. Jeremiah 31:2 ], where there is a characteristic word-play: gam Madmçn tiddômî , ‘also, O Madmen, thou shalt be brought to silence’ (LXX [Note: Septuagint.] kai pausin pausetai ). It is a very natural suggestion that the initial m of Madmen has arisen by dittography from the final m of the preceding word, and that for Madmen we should read Dimon (cf. Isaiah 15:9 ), i.e . Dibon (cf. Jeremiah 48:18 ). Cf. art. Medeba.
