TOB . One of the small Aramæan principalities founded to the south of Mt. Hermon and Damascus in the 12th cent. b.c., the others being Hamath (the less), Zobah, Beth-rehob, Maacah or Geshur. It was in Tob that Jephthah lived as an outlaw ( Judges 11:3; Judges 11:5 ). Tob joined the rest of the Aramæans, except those of Hamath ( 2 Samuel 8:9 f.), in helping the Ammonites in their war against king David ( 2 Samuel 10:6 ff.). The exact position of these little States is uncertain. Tob was perhaps the most easterly of them. Possibly Tob is meant in the region alluded to in 1Ma 5:13 [ Tubias ], 2Ma 12:17 [ Tubieni ].
