Shemiramoth:

most high name. (1.) A Levite in the reign of Jehoshaphat (2Ch 17:8).

(2.) A Levite in David's time (1Ch 15:18,20).

Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary

Shemiramoth:

the height of the heavens

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Shemiramoth:

she-mir'-a-moth, she-mi'-ra-moth, shem-i-ra'-moth (shemiramoth; in 2Ch 17:8, Kethibh shemiramoth; Semeiramoth): The name of a Levitical family. In 1Ch 15:18,20; 16:5 Shemiramoth is listed among the names of David's choirs; in 2Ch 17:8 the same name is given among the Levites delegated by Jehoshaphat to teach the Law in the cities of Judah. According to Schrader (KAT (2), 366) the name is to be identified with the Assyrian Sammuramat; the latter occurs as a woman's name on the monuments, more especially on the statues of Nebo from Nimrod. Another suggestion is that Shemiramoth was originally a place-name meaning "image of Shemiram" (= name of Ram or "the Exalted One").

Written by Horace J. Wolf

(2.) A Levite in the reign of Jehoshaphat (2 Chronicles 17:8). (B.C. 909)
