🔼The name Almon in the Bible
🔼Etymology of the name Almon
The name Almon comes from the root group עלם. The ון upon which this name ends is a common structure to localize or personify a root:
NOBSE Study Bible Name List doesn't list Almon, but Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names interprets it as Hidden. BDB Theological Dictionary doesn't translate this name but does list it under עלם I, meaning to hide or conceal. BDB also helpfully submits that this town is about one hour north-east of Jerusalem, but doesn't mention if that's an hour by camel or Land Rover.
