Ad'ami (Heb. Adami', אֲדָמַי, reddish; Sept. Α᾿δεμμί, Vulg. Adami), a city near the border of Naphtali, mentioned between Zaanaim and Nekeb (Jos 19:33). The best interpreters (e.g. Rosenmüller, Keil, in loc.) join this with the following name, Nekeb (הִנֶּקֶב, i. q. in the hollow; so the Vulg. quae est Neceb, but the Sept. distinguishes them, καὶ Νάκεβ), as if an epithet of the same place; although the Jerusalem Talmud (Megillah, 70, 1) makes them distinct, and calls the former Damin (דָּמַין), which Schwarz (Palest. p. 181) supposes identical with a "village Dame 5 English miles west of the S.W. point of the Sea of Tiberias," meaning the ruined site Dameh (Robinson, Researches, 3, 237), falling on the limits of Naphtali. SEE TRIBE. The place appears to be the same elsewhere (Jos 19:36) called ADAMAH SEE ADAMAH (q.v.), and the enumeration in ver. 38 requires the collocation Adanminekeb as one locality. SEE NEKEB.
