|Dumah - |
Silence, (Compare Psalms 94:17), the fourth son of Ishmael; also the tribe descended from him; and hence also the region in Arabia which they inhabited (Genesis 25:14; 1 Chronicles 1:30).
There was also a town of this name in Judah (Joshua 15:52), which has been identified with ed-Domeh, about 10 miles southwest of Hebron. The place mentioned in the "burden" of the prophet (Isaiah 21:11) is Edom or Idumea.
