[some Jotba'thah] (Heb. Yotba'thah, יָטבָתָה, goodness, i.e. pleasantness, compare Agathopolis [the name is the same with יָטבָה, Jotbah, with ה paragogic appended]; Sept. Ι᾿ετεβαθά v.r. Ταιβαθά,a etc. Auth. Vers. in De 10:7, "Jotbath"), the thirty-fourth station of the Israelites during their wandering in the desert, situated between Hor-hagidgad and Ebronah (Nu 33:33-34), and again their forty-first station, between Gudgodah and the Red Sea (De 10:7). described in the latter passage as "a land of rivers (נִחֲלַים, winter-brooks) of waters." The locality thus indicated is probably the expanded valley near the confluence of wady Jerafeh in its southern part with wady Mukutta el- Tuwarik and others (Robinson's Researches, 1, 261), especially wady el- Adbeh, which nearly approaches the Heb. name (Jour. Sac. Lit. April, 1860, p. 47-49). This is generally a region answering to the description of fertility (Bonar's Desert of Sinai, p. 295). Schwarz (Palestine, p. 213), however, thinks wady Tuba, nearer the Akabah, is meant. SEE EXODE.
