  1. City mentioned in the vision of Ezekiel (Ezekiel 47:19 ) as one terminus of the southern boundary-line of Canaan, which extended thence through Meriboth-kadesh to the Mediterranean. According to Ezekiel 48:28 , moreover, this entire district was to belong to the tribe of Gad. A comparison of this boundary-line with that given in Numbers 34:3-5 shows that Tamar was probably situated in the border-land of Moab, near the Dead Sea.

  2. Same as Hazazon-Tamar .
