Dimon

DIMON (dī'mŏn). A town in Moab, generally called “Dibon” but in Isa.15.9 twice written “Dimon,” about four (seven km.) miles north of Aroer.


DIMON dī’ mən (דִּימוֹן; LXX Πεμμων; dung-pit?). A place mentioned in Isaiah’s oracle against Moab (Isa 15:9). Though taken by RSV as a mistake for Dibon, it is now identified with Khirbet Dimneh near ’ain el-Megheisil. (J. Simons, The Geographical and Topographical Texts of the Old Testament, 1261.)
