Ramath of the south
The Hebrew negeb is the general designation for south or southwest of Judah. This was one of the towns of Simeon (Joshua 19:8). It is the same as “south Ramoth” (1 Samuel 30:27; Revised Version, “Ramoth of the south”). Its site is doubtful. Some have thought it another name for Baalath-beer.
