SHIMRON-MERON . A Canaanite town, west of Jordan, whose king was among those whom Joshua smote ( Joshua 12:20 ). Comparing its position in the list with that of Shimron in the list given in Joshua 11:1 , we may infer that the two places are identical.

Canaanite city-state which joined Hazor's northern coalition against Joshua and met defeat (Joshua 11:1 ). Some commentators think the original name was Shimon and identify it with modern khirbet Sammuniyeh five miles west of Nazareth in the Esdraelon Valley.
