Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
GIBBETHON (‘mound,’ ‘height’). A town belonging to the tribe of Dan, and a Levitical city ( Joshua 19:44; Joshua 21:23 ). Nadab, king of Israel, was besieging it when he was slain by Baasha; and Omri was similarly engaged when he was made king by the army ( 1 Kings 15:27; 1 Kings 16:16-17 ). It is possibly the modern Kibbiah , to the N.E. of Lydda.
