tā´bẽr , tār´bôr ( תּבור , tābhōr ; Codex Vaticanus Θαχχειά , Thachcheiá ; Codex Alexandrinus Θαβώρ , Thabṓr ): One of the towns in the territory of Zebulun, given to the Merarite Levites ( 1 Chronicles 6:77 ). The parallel list in Joshua 21:24 f contains no name like this. There is no indication of its position. Some have thought that it may correspond to Daberath in the territory of Issachar ( Joshua 21:28 ), now represented by Debūriyeh on the western slope of Mt. Tabor; others that it may be the mountain itself; and yet others that it may be a city on the mountain, which probably was occupied from very early times. There is a Tabor mentioned as on the border of Issachar (Joshua 19:22 ); but that is almost certainly the mountain. It has been suggested that Tabor in 1 Chronicles 6:17 may be a contraction of Chisloth-tabor ( Joshua 19:12 ), the modern Iksāl , 3 miles West of the mountain. No certainty is possible.
