Leb'aöth (Heb. Lebasth', לבָאוֹת lionesses; Sept. Λαβαώθ), a city in the southern part of Judah, i.e. Simeon (Jos 15:32); elsewhere more fully BETH- LAEBAOTH (Jos 19:6); also BETH-BIREI (1Ch 4:31). The associated names in all these passages suggest a location in the wild south- western part of the tribe, possibly at the ruined site marked on Van de Velde's Map as Sbeta, on wady Suniyeh, not very far from Elusa, towards Gaza.
