(hahr' muhn) Place name of uncertain meaning in Amos 4:3 as translated by NRSV, NAS, NIV. KJV reads, “palace,” changing the first letter of the Hebrew word to a common Hebrew noun for royal fortresses. TEV does not translate the final Hebrew word, saying it is unclear. REB changes two Hebrew letters slightly to translate, “dunghill.” The earliest Greek translation read, “Mount Rimmon.” Some Bible students change the first letter slightly to read, “Mount Hermon.” If Harmon, the unchanged Hebrew text, is read, we know nothing of the place meant. Whatever the precise reading of the original, Amos' intention was to describe the drastic fate waiting the sinful women of Samaria, a fate using terminology connected with slaughter of animals and exile.
