Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
IBLEAM . A town belonging to West Manasseh ( Joshua 17:11 , Judges 1:27 ). It is mentioned also in 2 Kings 9:27 in connexion with the death of king Ahaziah, who fled by the way of Beth-haggan and ‘the ascent of Gur, which is by Ibleam.’ The Biblical data seem to be well satisfied by the modern ruin Bel‘ ame , some 13 miles E. of N. of Samaria, more than half-way to Jezreel.
In 2 Kings 15:10 (AV [Note: Authorized Version.] and RV [Note: Revised Version.] ) ‘before the people’ should certainly be emended to ‘in Ibleam.’ Gath-rimmon of Joshua 21:25 is a scribal error for Ibleam . It is the same place that is called Bileam in 1 Chronicles 6:70 .
