    Barnes' Notes on Judges 9:48

    Zalmon - A lofty and thickly-wooded hill, as the etymology of the name ("shady") implies, in the immediate neighborhood of Shechem: perhaps the same as Ebal. The setting fire to the hold, where the men of Shechem were all crowded together, with their wives and children, was the literal fulfillment of Jotham's curse in Judges 9:20.

    Wesley's Notes on Judges 9:48

    9:48 Zalmon - A place so called from its shadiness.
