Zemarite, the

Additional Links

ZEMARITE, THE . A collective designation of one of the Canaanite communities in Genesis 10:18 , named along with the Arvadite, and therefore presumably in Northern Phœnicia. It stands probably for the people of Simirra , an important city in the time of the later Assyrian empire and the seat of an Assyrian province. It seems to be mentioned also in the Amarna letters under the name Sumur . Perhaps we should compare the modern Sumra , between Ruwâd (Arvad) and Tarabulûs (Tripolis).
