Gath-rimmon

(press of the pomegranate )

  1. A city given out of the tribe of Dan to the Levites. ( Joshua 21:24 ; 1 Chronicles 6:69 ) situated on the plain of Philistia, apparently not far from Joppa. ( Joshua 19:45 )
  2. A town of the half tribe of Manasseh west of the Jordan, assigned to the Levites. ( Joshua 21:25 ) The reading Gath-rimmon is probably an error of the transcribers.
