Bible Names A-G: Dumah


Dumah in Easton's Bible Dictionary silence, (comp. Ps. 94:17), the fourth son of Ishmael; also the tribe descended from him; and hence also the region in Arabia which they inhabited (Gen. 25:14; 1 Chr. 1:30). There was also a town of this name in Judah (Josh. 15:52), which has been identified with ed-Domeh, about 10 miles southwest of Hebron. The place mentioned in the "burden" of the prophet Isaiah (21:11) is Edom or Idumea.

Dumah in Fausset's Bible Dictionary ("silence".) An Ishmaelite tribe and region (Genesis 25:14; 1 Chronicles 1:30; Isaiah 21:11). The name survives in Doomat el Jendel, "Dumah of the blocks of stone," namely, of which it was built. On the borders of Arabia and the Syrian desert. Put for all Idumea, to imply it should soon be put to silence, i.e. be destroyed. The name indicates its unhewn cyclopean masonry, like the gigantic buildings of Bashan. A town in the hills of Judah, near Hebron (Joshua 15:52). Perhaps now Duweimeh, on the W. of the high district, N. of the Negeb or dry south land.

Dumah in Smiths Bible Dictionary (silence). 1. A son of Ishmael, most probably the founder of the Ishmaelite tribe of Arabia, and thence the name of the principal place of district inhabited by that tribe. Ge 25:14; 1Ch 1:30; Isa 21:11 2. A city in the mountainous district of Judah, near Hebron, Jos 15:52 represented by the ruins of a village called ed-Daumeh, six miles southwest of Hebron.

Dumah in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE du'-ma (dumah, "silence"): This word occurs in the Old Testament with the following significations: (1) the land of silence or death, the grave (Ps 94:17; 115:17); (2) a town in the highlands of Judah between Hebron and Beersheba, now ed- Daume (Josh 15:52); (3) an emblematical designation of Edom in the obscure oracle (Isa 21:11,12); (4) an Ishmaelite tribe in Arabia (Gen 25:14; 1 Ch 1:30). According to the Arabic geographies this son of Ishmael rounded the town of Dumat-el- Jandal, the stone-built Dumah, so called to distinguish it from another Dumah near the Euphrates. The former now bears the name of the Jauf ("belly"), being a depression situated half-way between the head of the Persian Gulf and the head of the gulf of Akaba. Its people in the time of Mohammed were Christians of the tribe of Kelb. It contained a great well from which the palms and crops were irrigated. It has often been visited by European travelers in recent times. See Jour. Royal Geog. Soc., XXIV (1854), 138-58; W. G. Palgrave, Central and Eastern Arabia, chapter ii. It is possible that the oracle in Isa (number 3 above) concerns this place. Thomas Hunter Weir
