Harmon (Heb. Harmon', הִרמוֹן probably from הָר, to be high; Sept. τὸ ὄρος τὸ ῾Ρομμάν; Vulg. excelsus mons; A.V. "the palace"), a place only mentioned in Am 3:4, as that to which the inhabitants of Samaria would be led forth by their Assyrian conquerors, evidently, therefore, some unknown locality of the captivity. The ancient interpretations are obviously mere etymological conjectures, chiefly by a resolution of the first part of the name into הִר a mountain; "and the latter into a form of מַנַּי, Armenia, or רַמּוֹן,' Rimmon; which are unsuitable. Kimchi makes it equivalent to אִרמוֹן a town.
