JARMUTH. 1. A royal city of the Canaanites ( Joshua 10:3 etc.), in the Shephçlab, assigned to Judah ( Joshua 15:35 ). It is probably identical with ‘Jermucha’ of the Onomasticon , 10 Roman miles from Elentheropolis, on the Jerusalem road. This is now Khirbet Yarmûk , between Wâdy es-Sarûr and Wâdy es-Sant , about 8 miles N. of Beit Jibrîn . 2. A city in Issachar, allotted to the Gershonite Levites ( Joshua 21:29 , LXX [Note: Septuagint.] B Remmath ). It corresponds to Ramoth in 1 Chronicles 6:73 , and Remeth appears in Joshua 19:21 among the cities of Issachar. Guthe suggests er-Râmeh , about 11 miles S. W. of Jenîn , but this is uncertain.
