Shalman

SHALMAN (shăl'măn, Heb. shalman). Mentioned only in Hos.10.14. The person (Shalman) and the place ([[Beth Arbel]]) are now unknown. The ancient versions differ considerably. The two most likely theories: (1) a contraction of Shalmaneser; (2) the Moabite king Salmanu, mentioned in the inscriptions of Tiglath-Pileser.
