Na’amathite, the gentilic name of one of Job’s friends, Zophar the Naamathite. Job 2:11; 11:1; 20:1; 42:9. There is no other trace of this name in the Bible, and the town whence it is derived is unknown. (But as Uz was in Arabia, probably the Naamah where he lived was on the Arabian borders of Syria.)
