ham'-on (chammon, "glowing"):

(1) A place on the seaward frontier of Asher, named with Rehob and Kanah (Jos 19:28), to be sought, therefore, not far from Tyre. The most probable identification so far suggested is with Umm el'Amud, "mother of the column" (or ‘Awamid, "columns"), at the mouth of Wady Chamul, on the shore, about 10 miles South of Tyre. An inscription found by Renan shows that the place was associated with the worship of Ba‘al Chamman (CIS, I, 8).

(2) A city in Naphtali, given to the Gershonite Levites (1Ch 6:76). It is identical with Hammath (Jos 19:35), and probably also with Hammoth-dor (Jos 21:32).

(warm springs).

(1.) A city in Asher (Joshua 19:28) apparently not far from Zidon‐rabbah.

(2.) A city allotted out of the tribe of Naphtali to the Levites (1 Chronicles 6:76) and answering to the somewhat similar names HAMMATH and HAMMOTH‐DOR in Joshua. SEE [HAMMATH].
