(PLAIN OF TABOR in the King James Version) ( תּבור אלון , ēlōn tābhōr ; ἡ δρῦς Θαβώρ , hē drús Thabṓr ): A place mentioned only in Samuel's directions to Saul after his anointing ( 1 Samuel 10:3 ). It lay between the city where the two met and Gibeah whither Saul was returning. Ewald and Thenius thought it might be identical with the palm tree of Deborah, but there is nothing to support this conjecture. Others have thought we might read "oak of Deborah," as signifying the place where Rachel's nurse was buried (Genesis 35:8 ). The truth is that nothing whatever is now known of the site.
