NAAMATHITE (nā'a-ma-thīt, Heb. na‘ămāthî, a dweller in Naamah). A gentilic noun with an article, applied to Zophar, one of Job’s friends (Job.2.11; Job.11.1; Job.20.1; Job.42.9). The place was probably in north Arabia. See Naamah.

NAAMATHITE nā’ ə mə thīt (נַּֽעֲמָתִ֑י, a dweller in Naaman). A resident of Na’ameh, which may be Djebel-el-Na’ameh, in NW Arabia. Zophar, one of Job’s friends, is called a Naamathite (Job 2:11; 11:1; 20:1; 42:9).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

na’-a-ma-thit, na-am’-a-thit (na`amdthi, "a dweller in Naaman"; ho M(e)inaion basileus): The description of Zophar, one of Job’s friends (Job 2:11; 11:1; 20:1, etc.). Naamah is too common a place-name to permit of the identification of Zophar’s home; the Septuagint renders it as "king of the Minaeans."
