Amam

A'mam (Hebrew Amam', אֲמָם, gathering; Sept. Α᾿μάμ), a city in the southern part of the tribe of Judah, mentioned between Hazor and Shema (Jos 15:26), being apparently situated in the tract afterward assigned to Simeon (Jos 19:1-9); probably about midway on the southern border between the Mediterranean and the Dead Sea. The enumeration in Jos 15:32, shows that this name is to be taken in connection with the preceding, i.e. Hazor-Amam SEE HAZOR, which probably designates the same place as KERIOTH-HEZROM SEE KERIOTH-HEZROM (q.v.). SEE TRIBE.
