Dictionary

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Zalmon
ZALMON . 1 . The hill near Shechem where Abimelech and his followers cut wood for the burning down of the stronghold of Baal-berith ( Judges 9:48 ). Possibly the same mountain is meant in Psalms 68:14 , where a snowstorm is apparently referred to as contributing to the scattering of ‘kings’ opposed to the people of Jehovah. As the Psalm refers to incidents of wars not related in the canonical books, we have to look to the times of the Maccabees; and the most obvious allusion is to the retreat of the army of Tryphon in b.c. 143, when he attempted to relieve the Syrian garrison in Jerusalem and was prevented by a heavy fall of snow ( 1Ma 13:22 ). 2 . See Ilai.
