Hebrew - Mamre
MAMRE

An Amorite prince, brother of Eshcol and Aner. All three united their forces to aid Abraham in the rescue of Lot, Genesis 14:1-24. He gave his name to the town where he dwelt, afterwards Hebron, in the suburbs of which was a large terebinth-tree, or grove, (see OAK,) called in the English Bible "the plain of Mamre." Here Abraham and his descendants often pitched their tents, Genesis 13:18 18:1. The cave of Machpelah was adjacent to Mamre on the east, Genesis 23:17,19 49:30; and from the heights nearby, Abraham could see the smoking plain of Sodom, Genesis 19:27,28.
