Jog'behah (Heb. Yogbah', יָגבִּהּ, only with ה paragogic, יָגבּהָה, lofty; Sept. Ι᾿εγεβαά, but ὕψωσαν αὐτάς in Numbers; Vulg. Jegbaa), a place mentioned (between Jazer and Beth-nimrah) among the "fenced cities and folds for sheep" rebuilt by the Gadites (Nu 32:35). It lay on the route of Gideon when pursuing the nomadic Midianites, near Nobah, beyond Penuel, in the direction of Karkor (Jg 8:11). These notices correspond sufficiently with the locality of the ruined village El-Jebeiha (Robinson's Researches, 3, Append. p. 168), laid down on Robinson's and Zimmerman's maps on the edge of the desert east of Jebel el-Fukeis.
