METHEG-AMMAH. ‘David took Metheg-ammah out of the hand of the Philistines’ ( 2 Samuel 8:1 AV [Note: Authorized Version.] and RVm [Note: Revised Version margin.] ). RV [Note: Revised Version.] tr. [Note: translate or translation.] ‘the bridle of the mother-city,’ which has been interpreted to mean authority over the metropolis, or the suzerainty exercised by the Philistines, it being assumed that Gath was the leading city. In all probability the text is corrupt beyond restoration. See, further, ExpT [Note: Expository Times.] , Oct. 1899, p. 48, and Feb. 1906, p. 215.
