ibid., a Moabite town threatened with the sword of the Babylonians ( Jeremiah 48:2 ).
mad'-men (madhmen; kai pausin pausetai):
An unidentified town in Moab against which Jeremiah prophesied (48:2). The play upon the words here suggests a possible error in transcription: gam madhmen tiddomi, "Also, Madmen, thou shalt be silenced." The initial "M" of "Madmen" may have arisen by dittography from the last letter of gam. We should then vocalize it as "Dimon," which of course is "Dibon."
