Easton's Bible Dictionary

Rimmon:

pomegranate. (1.) A man of Beeroth (2Sa 4:2), one of the four Gibeonite cities. (See Jos 9:17.)

(2.) A Syrian idol, mentioned only in 2Ki 5:18.

(3.) One of the "uttermost cities" of Judah, afterwards given to Simeon (Jos 15:21,32; 19:7; 1Ch 4:32). In Jos 15:32 Ain and Rimmon are mentioned separately, but in Jos 19:7 and 1Ch 4:32 (Neh 11:29) the two words are probably to be combined, as forming together the name of one place, Ain-Rimmon=the spring of the pomegranate. It has been identified with Um er-Rumamin, about 13 miles south-west of Hebron.

(4.) "Rock of," to which the Benjamites fled (Jdg 20:45,47; 21:13), and where they maintained themselves for four months after the fearful battle at Gibeah, in which they were almost exterminated, 600 only surviving out of about 27,000. It is the present village of Rummon, "on the very edge of the hill country, with a precipitous descent toward the Jordan valley," supposed to be the site of Ai.

Rimmon:

exalted; pomegranate

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Rimmon:

(pomegranate) the name of several towns.

(1.) A city of Zebulun (1 Chronicles 6:77; Nehemiah 11:29) a Levitical city, the present Rummaneh, six miles north of Nazareth.

(2.) A town in the southern portion of Judah (Joshua 15:3) allotted to Simeon (Joshua 19:7; 1 Chronicles 4:32) probably 13 miles southwest of Hebron.

(3.) Rimmon‐parez (pomegranate of the breach) the name of a march‐station in the wilderness (Numbers 33:19, 20). No place now known has been identified with it.

(4.) Rimmon the Rock, a cliff or inaccessible natural fastness, in which the six hundred Benjamites who escaped the slaughter of Gibeah took refuge (Judges 20:45; 20:47; 21:13). In the wild country which lies on the east of the central highlands of Benjamin the name is still found attached to a village perched on the summit of a conical chalky hill, visible in all directions, and commanding the whole country.

(5.) A Benjamite of Beeroth, the father of Rechab and Baanah, the murderers of Ish‐bosheth (2 Samuel 4:2; 4:5; 4:9). "
