Gibeah Panorama, Israel

Gibeah (; Hebrew: גבעה Giv'a) is one of several place names appearing in several books of the Hebrew Bible. In one instance, it is generally identified with Tell el-Fūl (Arabic for "mound of fava beans"), a hill in the northern reaches of modern Jerusalem, on the outskirts of the Pisgat Ze'ev and Shuafat neighborhoods. However, this identification was challenged by Israel Finkelstein in 2011. In another instance, Conder identifies the Palestinian village of Jab'a with the biblical town of Gibeah, mentioned in Joshua 15:57, although this later identification places Gibeah to the south of Jerusalem.
