What is Shimron?
        (watch-post), an ancient city of Canaan, over which Jabin was king. Josh 11:1; 1 Kgs 19:15. The Shimron-meron of Josh 12:20 is probably the same with Shimron. It may be identified with the village es-Semiriyeh, about 5 miles from Acre, on the road to Tyre, where a solemn conference took place, a.d. 1277. The Pal. Memoirs suggest Semuieh???, a small village with three springs, at the edge of the Plain of Esdraelon, 5 miles west of Nazareth.
