Lib´nah, one of the royal cities of the Canaanites, taken by Joshua immediately after Makkedah (; ). It lay within the territory assigned to Judah (), and became one of the Levitical towns in that tribe (; ). It was a strongly fortified place. The Assyrian King Sennacherib was detained some time before it when he invaded Judea in the time of Hezekiah; and it was before it that he sustained that dreadful stroke which constrained him to withdraw to his own country (; ). In the reign of King Jehoram, Libnah is said to have revolted from him (; ). Libnah existed as a village in the time of Eusebius and Jerome, and is placed by them in the district of Eleutheropolis.
