Gabatha (2)

(Γαβαθά ), a village (κώμη ) mentioned only by Eusebius and Jerome (Ononzast. s.v. Γαβαθών, Gabathon) as lying on the eastern part of the great plain Daroma (Esdraelon), near Diocaesarea; a position corresponding with that of the modern village Jebata, north of the Kishon (Ritter, Erdk. 16:748), seen but not visited by Robinson (Researches, 3:201). Euseb. and Jerome elsewhere (ib. s.v. Γαβαάς, Gabaath) mention a place of the same name as being twelve miles from Eleutheropolis, and containing the tomb of the prophet Habakkuk (a statement which Reland, Palaest. page 772, reconciles with their location of the same prophet's tomb at Keilah); but this seems to have been the Benjamite Gibeah (q.v.). For the Gabatha (Γαβαθά ) of Josephus (Ant. 13:1, 4; comp. Reland, Palast. page 772), see the NADABATHA (Ναδαβάθ ) of the Apocrypha (1 Maccabees 4:37).
