Ge'bim (Heb. Gebm', גֵּבַים, cisterns [as in Jer 14:3, "pits"], or locusts [as in Isa 33:4]; Sept. Γιββεϊvς, Vulg. Gabim), a small place a short distance north of Jerusalem, mentioned between Madmenah and Nob, Isa 10:31, where its inhabitants are prophetically described as fleeing at the approach of the invading Assyrian army. Eusebius and Jerome (Onomast. s.v. Γεβενά, Gebin) identify it with "Geba, a village five miles from Guphna towards Neapolis;" and Schwarz (Palaest. page 131) identifies it with the Gob of 2Sa 21:18); but both these are at variance with the order of the places named by the prophet. The associated hocalities require a position corresponding to that of the present El- Isawiyeh, a little village in a valley near the road leading N.E. from Jerusalem (Robinson, Researches, 2:108). SEE NOB. It probably derived its Heb. name from the vicinity of excavations (הִגֵּבַים = the ditches; comp. 2Ki 3:16).
