(Hebrews Atsmon', עִצְמוֹן ', strong; Sept. Ἀσεμωνᾶ, Εελμωνάν), a place on the southern border of Palestine, between Hazar-adar (beyond a bend at Karkaa) and "the river of Egypt" (Numbers 34:4-5; Joshua 15:4). The site is perhaps marked by the ruins on a hill near Wady es-Shutin (Robinson, Researches, 1, 296), near the junction of Wady Futeis with Wady Ruhaibeh, (See TRIBE), about half way between Elusa and Rehoboth (Van de Velde's Jiap). (See HESHMON).
