Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Tema
TEMA . In Genesis 25:15 ( 1 Chronicles 1:30 ), a son of Ishmael. The country and people meant are still represented by the same name the modern Taima , a large oasis about 200 miles S.E. of the head of the Gulf of ‘Akabah, and the same distance due N. of Medina in W. Arabia. It was an important community in ancient times, mentioned in Assyr. [Note: Assyrian.] annals of the 8th cent. b.c., and later inhabited in part by Aramæans, who have left inscriptions. It was noted for its caravan traffic ( Job 6:19 , Isaiah 21:14 ), as might be expected from its position on the great trade routes.

Holman Bible Dictionary - Tema
(tee' muh) Personal and place name meaning, “south country.” Tema, a son of Ishmael (Genesis 25:15 ; 1 Chronicles 1:30 ), is associated with Tema (modern Teima), a strategic oasis located on the Arabian penisula 250 miles southeast of Aqaba and 200 miles north-northeast of Medina. Job 6:19 alludes to Tema's importance as a caravan stop. Isaiah 21:14 likely refers to the campaign of the Assyrian king Tiglath-Pileser III (738 B.C.) when Tema escaped destruction by paying tribute. Jeremiah 25:23 perhaps refers to a campaign of Nebuchadnezzar. Having conquered and rebuilt Tema, Nabonidus, the last king of Babylon, remained there ten years, leaving his son Belshazzar as vice-regent in Babylon ( Daniel 5:1 ).



Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Tema
("desert land".) Ishmael's ninth son (Genesis 25:15). Founder of an Arab tribe in the northern Arabia Deserta, on the border of the Syrian desert (Job 6:19); "the troops of Tema" are the caravans on the direct road anxiously "looking for" the return of their companions gone to look for water; the failure of it in the wady and the disappointment depict Job's disappointment at not finding comfort from his friends whose professions promised so much (Isaiah 21:14; Jeremiah 25:23).

Teyma, a small town, preserves the name (Themme in Ptolemy 5:19, section 6); commanded by the castle El Ablak of a Jew Samuel (A.D. 550), attributed by tradition to Solomon, now in ruins; originally meant to protect the caravan route on the N. of Arabia. Compare Genesis 25:15, "sons of Ishmael, by their towns and castles." The Hebrew however for "castles" may mean "hamlets"; see Speaker's Commentary, Numbers 31:10; from tor "a row," namely, of rude dwellings, of stones piled one on another and covered with tent cloths, like the devars in Algeria.
