(עַיר הִתְּמָרַים, city of the palms, so called prob. from a palm grove in its neighborhood; Sept. πόλις φοινίκων, or ἡ πόλις τῶν φοινίκων , Vulg. civitas palmarum, Auth. Vers. "city of palmtrees"), a place near or identical with JERICHO (Deuteronomy 34:3; Judges 1:16; Judges 3:13; 2 Chronicles 28:15), which now, however, is utterly destitute of palm- trees.
