Hammon [EBD]

warm springs. (1.) A town in the tribe of Asher, near Zidon (Josh. 19:28), identified with 'Ain Hamul.

(2.) A Levitical city of Naphtali (1 Chr. 6:76).

Hammon [NAVE]

1. A city of Asher, Josh. 19:28.
2. A Levitical city of Naphtali, 1 Chr. 6:76.
Possibly identical with Hammath and Hammoth-dor, which see.


(warm springs).
  1. A city in Asher, (Joshua 19:28) apparently not far from Zidon-rabbah.
  2. A city allotted out of the tribe of Naphtali to the Levites, (1 Chronicles 6:76) and answering to the somewhat similar names HAMMATH and HAMMOTH-DOR in Joshua.


HAMMON - ham'-on (chammon, "glowing"):

(1) A place on the seaward frontier of Asher, named with Rehob and Kanah (Josh 19:28), to be sought, therefore, not far from Tyre. The most probable identification so far suggested is with Umm el'Amud, "mother of the column" (or `Awamid, "columns"), at the mouth of Wady Chamul, on the shore, about 10 miles South of Tyre. An inscription found by Renan shows that the place was associated with the worship of Ba`al Chamman (CIS, I, 8).

(2) A city in Naphtali, given to the Gershonite Levites (1 Ch 6:76). It is identical with Hammath (Josh 19:35), and probably also with Hammoth-dor (Josh 21:32).
