Merathaim

Jump to: navigation, search

Merathaim is a biblical term found in Jeremiah[1] meaning two things: double bitterness and double rebellion[citation needed]. Some scholars[who?] hold the idea that that the dual expression is merely the intensity of the Lord[citation needed] while others say that it is an actual place[2] because of the context: Attack the land of Merathaim.
