Dumah

Dumah [N] [S]

silence, (Compare Psalms 94:17 ), the fourth son of Ishmael; also the tribe descended from him; and hence also the region in Arabia which they inhabited ( Genesis 25:14 ; 1 Chronicles 1:30 ).

There was also a town of this name in Judah ( Joshua 15:52 ), which has been identified with ed-Domeh, about 10 miles southwest of Hebron. The place mentioned in the "burden" of the prophet ( Isaiah 21:11 ) is Edom or Idumea.
