Ibleam

(Heb. Yibleaim', יַבְלְעָם , people-waster; Sept. Ι᾿αβλαάμ, Ι᾿εβλαάμ [but some codd. occasionally omit]), a city (with suburban towns) within the natural precincts of Issachar, but (with five others) assigned to Manasseh (Joshua 17:11, where it is mentioned between Beth-shean and Dor), but from which the Israelites were unable to expel the Canaanites (Judges 1:27, where it is mentioned between Dor and Megiddo); lying near the pass of Gur, in the vicinity of Megiddo, where Jehu slew Ahaziah (2 Kings 9:27). It was assigned as a Levitical city to the family of Kohath (1 Chronicles 6:70, where it is less correctly called BILEAM and mentioned along with Aner as lying within Manasseh); compare Joshua 21:25, where it is called GATH-RIMMON (apparently by error; see the Sept., and comp. 1 Chronicles 6:69). According to Schwarz (Palest. p. 148), it is the modern village Jubla, south-west (north-west) of Beth-shean, and about two English miles south of the village Kefrah; but no map has this place, and the indications require a different position. (See GUR). The site is probably represented by that of Jelanseh, a small village about two and a half miles north of Jenin (Robinson, Researches, 3, 161).
