Shimron Meron

SHIMRON MERON (shîm'rŏn mē'rŏn). A town listed among the thirty-four that Joshua conquered in the conquest of Canaan (Josh.12.20).

SHIMRON-MERON shĭm’ rŏn mĭr ŏn (שִׁמְרֹ֤ון מְראוֹן). One of thirty-one cities defeated by Joshua in the Conquest (Josh 12:20). If the LXX is correct, Shimron and Meron should be regarded as separate cities.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

A royal city of the Canaanites, the king of which was slain by Joshua (12:20). Here the name is followed by that of Achshaph, which also follows the name of Shimron in 11:1. This suggests that the two are in reality one, and that Shimron-meron may only be the full name. A royal Canaanite city, Sam-simuruna, is mentioned in the inscriptions of Sen-nacherib, Esar-haddon and Assur-bani-pal, which Schrader (KAT2, 163) would identify with this, and thinks it may now be represented by es-Semeiri-yeh.

See Shimron.
