Hebrew - Ramoth-gilead
RAMOTH-GILEAD

(ray' mahth-gihl' ih uh) Place name meaning, “heights of Gilead.” One of the cities of refuge Moses appointed for unintentional killers (Deuteronomy 4:43; compare Joshua 20:8) and Levitical cities (Joshua 21:38). It probably was located in northeastern Gilead, east of the Jordan. Solomon made Ramoth-gilead a district capital (1 Kings 4:13). After the division of the kingdom about 922 B.C., the city fell to Syria (1 Kings 22:3) and remained there for almost seventy years. Ahab attempted to retake the city but was mortally wounded in the battle (1 Kings 22:29-40). Joram did recapture the city (2 Kings 9:14; compare 2 Kings 8:28). In Ramoth-gilead Elisha anointed Jehu as king over Israel (2 Kings 9:1-6). In 722 B.C. the region was taken by Assyria.
