nē´keb : This name occurs only in combination with "Adami" ( הנּקב אדמי , 'ădhāmı̄ ha - neḳebh , "Adami of the pass"); Septuagint reads the names of two places: καί Ἀρμὲ καὶ Νάβωκ , kaı́ Armé kaı́ Nábōk (B); καὶ Ἀρμαὶ καὶ Νάκεβ , kaı́ Armaı́ kaı́ Nákeb ( Joshua 19:33 ), so we should possibly read "Adami and Nekeb." Neubauer says (Geog . du Talmud , 225) that later the name of Nekeb was Ciyadathah. It may therefore be represented by the modern Seiyādeh , not far from ed -Dāmieh to the East of Tabor, about 4 miles Southwest of Tiberias. The name of Nekeb, a town in Galilee, appears in the list of Thothmes III.
