(ad' mah) Place name meaning, “red soil.” City connected with Sodom and Gomorrah as border of Canaanite territory (Genesis 10:19 ). Its king was defeated along with kings of Sodom and Gomorrah by coalition of four eastern kings (Genesis 14:1 ). God destroyed Admah, one of “the cities of the plains” (Genesis 19:29 ), along with Sodom and Gomorrah (Deuteronomy 29:23 ). God could not stand to treat Israel, the people He loved, like He had treated Admah, even though Israel's behavior resembled Admah's (Hosea 11:8 ). Admah may have been located under what is now the southern part of the Dead Sea.
