Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
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.
Easton's Bible Dictionary
The same, probably, as Shimron (Joshua 12:20 ).
Holman Bible Dictionary
(sshihm' rahn-mee' rahn) Town in list of cities Joshua defeated (Joshua 12:20 ). Apparently a longer name of Shimron (Joshua 11:1 ), though the earliest Greek translation and some commentators see two separate cities here.
Fausset's Bible Dictionary
- Shimron Meron
One of the 34 kings conquered by Joshua (Joshua 12:20; Joshua 11:1). In Joshua 19:15 Shimron Meron appears among the towns of Zebulun. The Talmud identifies Shimron Meron with Simuniyeh, W. of Nazareth. The Jewish traveler Ηap-Ρarchi fixes it south of Mount Gilboa, at a village Dar Meron (Asher's Benj. 2:434).
