Sam'lah (Heb. Samlah', שִׂמלָה, a garment; Sept Σαλαμά, Σαμαά, v.r. Σαμαδά, Σεβλά), a king who reigned in Edom before the Israelites had a king (Ge 36:36-37; 1Ch 1:47-48). B.C. post 1618. He was the successor of Hadad or Hadar, and was of Masrrekah, that being probably the chief city during his reign. This mention of a separate city as belonging to each (almost without exception) of the "kings" of Edom suggests that the Edomitish kingdom consisted of a confederacy of tribes, and that the chief city of the reigning tribe was the metropolis of the whole.
