🔼The name Mirmah in the Bible
🔼Etymology of the name Mirmah
The name Mirmah is identical to the noun מרמה (mirma), meaning deceit or treachery, from the verb רמה (rama II), meaning to mislead:
For a meaning of the name Mirmah, both NOBSE Study Bible Name List and Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names read Deceit.
BDB Theological Dictionary doesn't offer an interpretation and, curiously, also doesn't list our name under the verb רמה (rama) but alphabetically under the מ-words. BDB's objections to the obvious are unfortunately not listed.
