Dimonah

DIMONAH (dī-mŏn'na). A town in southern Judah (Josh.15.22), probably the same as the “Dibon” of Neh.11.25.


DIMONAH dī mō’ nə (דִּֽימוֹנָ֖ה; LXX A Διμωνα; B Πεγμα; dung-pit?). A city of the Negeb, near the Edomite border, belonging to Judah (Josh 15:22). It is generally thought to be the same place as the Dibon of Judah occupied by the Jews in the period of the return from exile under Nehemiah (Neh 11:25). The exact site is not known.
