RIMMON-PEREZ

rim-mon-pe'-rez (rimmon perets; the King James Version Rimmon-parez):

A desert camp of the Israelites (Numbers 33:19), unidentified. Gesenius translates rimmon as "pomegranate," the place deriving its name from the abundance of pomegranates. But Conder derives it from ramam, "to be high," and translates it "cloven height."
