(tay' bawr) Place name of uncertain meaning, perhaps, “height.” 1. A mountain in the valley of Jezreel. About six miles east of Nazareth, it has played an important role in Israel's history since the period of the conquest. It served as a boundary point for the tribes of Naphtali,

Issachar, and Zebulun (Joshua 19:12 ,Joshua 19:12,19:22 ), where the tribes worshiped early (Deuteronomy 33:18-19 ). Barak gathered an army at Tabor to defend against Sisera (Judges 4:6 ). Apparently, it was the site of false worship (Hosea 5:1 ). Tradition holds that Tabor was the site of Jesus' transfiguration (Mark 9:2 ), although no evidence exists to validate the claim.

2. Levitical city (1 Chronicles 6:77 ), apparently replacing Nahalal in the earlier list (Joshua 21:35 ). It may be khirbet Dabura.

3. The “Plain of Tabor” (1 Samuel 10:3 ) was apparently near Gibea.
