🔼The name Arumah in the Bible
Abimelech had killed his seventy brothers at Shechem and had taken control over Israel, but Gaal, son of Ebed stirred up the Shechemites into an insurrection against him. Mayor Zebul of Shechem enticed Gaal to battle the forces of Abimelech, but when he did so his army was utterly defeated. With Gaal on the run, Abimelech remained at Arumah and Zebul gave chase to Gaal. The next morning, Abimelech awaited the Shechemites as they went to work on their fields, and killed everybody and destroyed the city. What Zebul thought of that, the story doesn't tell.
