Ru'mah (Heb. Rumah', יוּמָה, high; Sept. ῾Ρουμά; Vulg. Ruma; Josephus, Α᾿βούμα, Ant. 10, 5, 2), a city named only in 2Ki 23:36 as the home of Pedaiah, father of Jehoiakim's mother, Zebudah. It is probably the same with Arumah (Jg 9:41), which is identified by Schwarz (Palest. p. 158) with the modern Ramin, two miles west of Samaria. SEE ARUMAH. Josephus mentions a Rumash in Galilee (War, 2, 7, 21). Others with less probability regard this as identical with Dumah, one of the towns in the mountains of Judah, near Hebron (Jos 15:52), not far distant from Libnah, the native town of another of Josiah's wives.
