dung'-hil ('ashpoth, 1 Sam 2:8, madhmenah, etc., with other words; kopria, Lk 14:35): Dung heap, or place of refuse. To sit upon a dunghill (1 Sam 2:8; Ps 113:7; Lam 4:5) is significant of the lowest and most wretched condition. To turn a house into a dunghill (Dan 2:5; 3:29), or be flung upon a dunghill (Lk 14:35), marks the extreme of ignominy.
See also DUNG.
