A city of importance in the extreme North of Palestine in the lot of Naphtali or Manassth: it is mentioned with Ijon and Dan. In 2 Samuel 20:15 it is called 'Abel of BETH-MAACHAH' and the wisdom of its rulers was said to be proverbial, 2 Samuel 20:18 . It was here that Sheba took shelter from Joab, but was put to death by the inhabitants.
