Shemiramoth in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
she-mir'-a-moth, she-mi'-ra-moth, shem-i-ra'-moth
(shemiramoth; in 2 Ch 17:8, Kethibh shemiramoth; Semeiramoth):
The name of a Levitical family. In 1 Ch 15:18,20; 16:5
Shemiramoth is listed among the names of David's choirs; in 2
Ch 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").
