(Heb. Lebasth', לְבָאוֹת lionesses; Sept. Λαβαώθ ), a city in the southern part of Judah, i.e. Simeon (Joshua 15:32); elsewhere more fully BETH- LAEBAOTH (Joshua 19:6); also BETH-BIREI (1 Chronicles 4:31). The associated names in all these passages suggest a location in the wild south- western part of the tribe, possibly at the ruined site marked on Van de Velde's Map as Sbeta, on wady Suniyeh, not very far from Elusa, towards Gaza.
