Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 [הַרְמוֺן] noun masculine meaning dubious; text perhaps corrupt; only Amos 4:3 וְהִשְׁלַכְתֶּנָֿה הַהַרְמ֫וֺנָה and ye shall cast them (your אחרית, posterity, AE; Hi RV cast [yourselves], but read rather with Vrss as passive ׳וְהָשְׁל shall be cast) into Harmon; if text be sound, some locality must be meant, though the nature of the allusion is lost (AV, into the palace, treats הרמון improbable as = ארמון). ᵑ7ᵑ6 have mountain ( s) of Armenia (הַר מוֺנָה), Symm Armenia, compare Lag Ges. Abh. 172, Hoffm ZAW iii. 1882,102, of exile; Hi-St for ׳ה read הֲדַדְרִמּוֺנָה to Hadadrimmon, proper name, of a location in plain of Jezreel, so Gunning; ᵐ5 εἰς τὸ ὄρος τὸ Ῥομμαν, whence Ew ingeniously ההר רמונה and ye shall cast Rimmonah (name of idol, supposed feminine of Rimmon 2 Kings 5:18) to the mountains.
