RAMOTH, a famous city in the mountains of Gilead, 1Ki 4:13. It is often called Ramoth-Gilead. Josephus calls it Ramathan, or Aramatha. The city belonged to the tribe of Gad, De 4:43. It was assigned for a dwelling of the Levites, and was one of the cities of refuge beyond Jordan, Jos 20:8; 21:38. It became famous during the reigns of the latter kings of Israel, and was the occasion of several wars between them and the kings of Damascus, who had made a conquest of it, which the sovereigns of Israel endeavoured to regain, 1Ki 22:3-5. Eusebius says, that Ramoth was fifteen miles from Philadelphia toward the east. St. Jerom places it in the neighbourhood of Jabbok, and consequently to the north of Philadelphia.
