Be'tah (Heb. Be'tach, בֶּטִח; Sept. Βατάχ v. r. Μετεβάκ [quasi מִטּבִח], and Μασβάχ, Vulg. Bete), a city belonging to Hadadezer, king of Zobah, mentioned with Berothai as having yielded much spoil of brass to David (2Sa 8:8). In the parallel account (1Ch 18:8) the name is called, by an inverson of letters, TIBHATH SEE TIBHATH (q.v.). Ewald (Gesch. 2, 195) pronounces the latter to be the correct reading, and compares it with TEBAH (Ge 22:24). — Smith, s.v.
