(Heb. Tabbath', טִבָּת, perh. celebrated [Gesenius]; Sept. Ταβάθ v.r. Γαβάθ ), a place mentioned in describing the flight of the Midianitish host after Gideon's night attack; they fled to Beth-shittah, to Zererath, to the brink of Abel-meholah on (על ) Tab- bath (Judges 7:22). As all these places were in or near the Ghor, Tabbath is probably the present Tubuhhat Fahil, i.e. "Terrace of Fahil," a very striking natural bank, 600 feet in height, with a long horizontal and apparently flat top, which is embanked against the western face of the mountains east of the Jordan, and descends with a very steep front to the river (Robinson, Bibl. Res. 3, 325).
