Josh 12:11; Josh 15:35. It was peopled after the Captivity. Neh 11:29. It is identified with Yarmak, 16 miles south-west of Jerusalem, on the crest of a rocky ridge, where hewn blocks of stone and other ruins of a town are found. 1. A city of Issachar, allotted with its suburbs to the Gershonite Levites, Josh 21:29, and called Reneth and Ramoth. Josh 19:21; 1 Chr 6:73. Conder proposes to identify it with Rameh.
