mad´men ( מדמן , madhmēn ; καὶ παῦσιν παύσεται , kaı́ paúsin paúsetai ): An unidentified town in Moab against which Jeremiah prophesied ( Jeremiah 48:2 ). The play upon the words here suggests a possible error in transcription: gam madhmēn tiddōmı̄ , "Also, Madmen, thou shalt be silenced." The initial "M " of "Madmen" may have arisen by dittography from the last letter of gam . We should then vocalize it as "Dimon ," which of course is "Dibon."
