Nob (2)

Nob The probable representative of this place, acquiesced in by Tristram (Bible Places, page 120), and substantially also by Conder (Tent Work, 2:117), is laid down on the Ordnance Map as Khurbet es-Soma, at less than half a mile north-east of Shafat, and described in the accompanying Memoirs (3:125) as "heaps of ruins; a cistern fourteen paces by four, with a rubble roof; and a crumbling building, apparently modern. There is a remarkable knoll of rock in the place, whence the name 'ruin of the heap.' The top of this knoll is surmounted by the remains of a small vaulted chamber. There are also a few rock-cut tombs on the south-east, now closed."
