Meron'othite (Hebrews Meronothi', מֵרֹנֹתַי, gentile from מֵרֹנוֹת. Meronoth', signif. uncertain, a place elsewhere unknown; Sept. ἐκ Μεραθών or Μαραθών, Μηρωνωθύτης,Vulg. Meronothites), an epithet applied to Jehdeiah, the herdsman of the royal asses in the time of David and Solomon (1Ch 27:30), and also to Jadon, one of those who repaired the walls of Jerusalem (Ne 3:7); apparently as being natives of some town called MERONOTH, of the position or existence of which no other notice is extant, but from the latter passage it may be conjectured to have lain not far from Gibeon and Mizpah, and appears to have been inhabited after the captivity.
