Easton's Bible Dictionary

Salmon:

garment, the son of Nashon (Rth 4:20; Mat 1:4,5), possibly the same as Salma in 1Ch 2:51.

Salmon:

shady; or Zalmon (q.v.), a hill covered with dark forests, south of Shechem, from which Abimelech and his men gathered wood to burn that city (Jdg 9:48). In Psa 68:14 the change from war to peace is likened to snow on the dark mountain, as some interpret the expression. Others suppose the words here mean that the bones of the slain left unburied covered the land, so that it seemed to be white as if covered with snow. The reference, however, of the psalm is probably to Josh. 11 and 12. The scattering of the kings and their followers is fitly likened unto the snow-flakes rapidly falling on the dark Salmon. It is the modern Jebel Suleiman.

Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary

Salmon:

peaceable; perfect; he that rewards

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Salmon:

(1.) a hill near Shechem, on which Abimelech and his followers cut down the boughs with which they set the tower of Shechem on fire (Judges 9:48). Its exact position is not known. Referred to in Psalm 68:14.

(2.) the father of Boar. SEE [SALMA, OR SALMON].
