Hebrew - Gath-rimmon
GATH-RIMMON

(gath-rihm' muhn) Place name meaning, “winepress on the pomegranate tree.” 1. Town in tribal territory of Dan (Joshua 19:45) and set aside for Levites (Joshua 21:24). It is usually located at tell Jerisheh on the Yarkon River in modern Tel Aviv, but some scholars locate it two miles to the northeast at tell Abu Zeitun. 1 Chronicles 6:69 lists Gath-rimmon in the tribe of Ephraim, but this is usually understood as a copyist's omission of a sentence at the beginning of 1 Chronicles 6:69. Gath-rimmon also appears in the Hebrew text of Joshua 21:25 though not in the earliest Greek translation or in the parallel in 1 Chronicles 6:70. Most scholars recognize that a copyist repeated Gath-rimmon from 1 Chronicles 6:24, the original reading probably being Ibleam. See Ibleam.
