City of Gibeah of Saul

 

A word employed in the Bible to denote a hill. Like most words of this kind it gave its name to several towns and places in Palestine, which would doubtless be generally on or near a hill. They are:

Gibeah of Saul, and you can find more about that here on st-takla.org on other commentaries and dictionary entries. This is not mentioned as Saul's city till after his anointing, (1 Samuel 10:26) when is said to have gone "home" to Gibeah. In the subsequent narrative the town bears its full name. ch (1 Samuel 11:4)

 

* See other occurrences of the same term: Gibeah.
