ADMAH

ad'-ma ('adhmah): From a root signifying red; one of the Cities of the Plain (Ciccar) (Gen 10:19; 14:2,8; Dt 29:23; Hos 11:8) upon which Abraham and Lot looked from the heights of Bethel; destroyed with Sodom and Gomorrah. Conder tentatively identifies it with the City of Adam referred to in Josh 3:16, and thinks that perhaps the name may be preserved in that of Damieh Ford, near the mouth of the river Jabbok; but that point could not have been in view from Bethel.
See VALE OF SIDDIM.
