Beth-ga'mul (Heb. Beyth Gamul', בֵּית גָּמוּל, house of the weaned, or possibly camel- house; Sept. οϊvκος v. r. Γαιμώλ v. r. Γαμῶλα), a city, apparently in the "plain country" of Moab, denounced by the prophet (Jer 48:23). Dr. Smith suggests (Biblical Researches, 3, Append. p. 153) that it is the modern Um-Jemal, a ruined site on the road (south according to Burckhardt, p. 106) from Busrah to Dera (his Edrei); which is probably correct, although it is difficult to believe that Moab ever extended so far north. SEE BOZRAH.
