Ramoth (2)

Additional Links

(Heb. Ramoth', רָמוֹת [but רָאמוֹת in Deuteronomy 4:43; Joshua 20:8; 1 Chronicles 6:73; 1 Chronicles 6:80], heights, plur. of Ramah [q.v.]; Sept. usually ῾Ραμώθ ), but ῾Ρημώθ in Ezra 10:29, ῾Ραμμώθ in 2 Chronicles 18:2-3; 2 Chronicles 18:5, etc.), the name of three towns in Palestine, and also of one man.

1. (Sept. ῾Ραμώθ .) One of the four Levitical cities of Issachar according to the catalogue in 1 Chronicles 6:73. In the parallel list in Joshua 21:28-29, among other variations, JARIMUTH (See JARIMUTH) (q.v.) appears in place of Ramoth. It seems impossible to decide which is the correct reading; or whether, again, REMETH (See REMETH) (q.v.), a town of Issachar, is distinct from them, or one and the same.

2. A city in the tribe of Gad (Deuteronomy 4:43; Joshua 20:8; Joshua 21:38; 1 Chronicles 6:80), elsewhere called RAMOTH-GILEAD (See RAMOTH-GILEAD) (q.v.).

3. (Sept. ῾Ραμᾶ .) A city in the tribe of Simeon ("South Ramoth," 1 Samuel 30:27). (See RAMATH-NEGEB).

4. (Heb. text Yirmoth', יַרְמוֹת , marg. ve-Ramoth', וְרָמוֹת, and Ramoth; Sept. Ρημώθ v. r. Μημών .) An Israelitish layman of the sons of Bani, who renounced his strange wife at Ezra's instigation (Ezra 10:29). B.C. 458.
