Meaning: the red ones
This was the name of a place apparently on the road between Jericho and Jerusalem, “on the south side of the torrent” Wady Kelt, looking toward Gilgal, mentioned Joshua 15:7; 18:17. It was nearly halfway between Jerusalem and Jericho, and now bears the name of Tal-at-ed-Dumm. It may be the place referred to in the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37).
