Admah

Admah [N] [H] [S]

earth, one of the five cities of the vale of Siddim ( Genesis 10:19 ). It was destroyed along with Sodom and Gomorrah ( 19:24 ; Deuteronomy 29:23 ). It is supposed by some to be the same as the Adam of Joshua 3:16 , the name of which still lingers in Damieh, the ford of Jordan. (See ZEBOIM)

ADMAH

ad'-ma ('adhmah):

From a root signifying red; one of the Cities of the Plain (Ciccar) (Genesis 10:19; 14:2,8; Deuteronomy 29:23; Hosea 11:8) upon which Abraham and Lot looked from the heights of Bethel; destroyed with Sodom and Gomorrah. Conder tentatively identifies it with the City of Adam referred to in Joshua 3:16, and thinks that perhaps the name may be preserved in that of Damieh Ford, near the mouth of the river Jabbok; but that point could not have been in view from Bethel.
