(2) In 1 Ch 8:14, Benjamites. Compare JEROHAM, (2).

JERIMOTH - jer'-i-moth (see JEREMOTH, (c)):

(1) A Benjamite (1 Ch 7:7).

(2) A Benjamite who joined David at Ziklag, or perhaps a Judean (1 Ch 12:5 (Hebrew 6)).

(3) In 1 Ch 24:30 = JEREMOTH, (4) (which see).

(4) A Levite musician in David's time (1 Ch 25:4).

(5) Son of David and father of Mahalath, Rehoboam's wife (2 Ch 11:18). He is not mentioned (2 Sam 3:2-5; 5:14-16; 1 Ch 3:1-9; 14:4-7) among the sons of David's wives, so Curtis (Ch, 369) thinks that he was either the son of a concubine, or possibly the name is a corruption of "Ithream" (yithre`am, 1 Ch 3:3).

(6) A Levite overseer in Hezekiah's time (2 Ch 31:13).

(2) Ramoth of the South.

See RAMAH, (5).

(3) Ramoth in Gilead.



RAMOTH (2) - ra'-moth (ramoth, Qere for yeremoth (Ezr 10:29 the King James Version); the Revised Version margin Kethibh makes the name similar to those in Ezr 10:26,27): One of the offenders in the matter of foreign marriages. The English Revised Version and the American Standard Revised Version, adopting Kethibh, read JEREMOTH (which see).
