She'bam (Heb. Sebam', שׂבָם, fragrance; Sept. Σεβαμά, and so the Samar. Cod. שבמה), one of the towns in the pastoral district on the east of Jordan — the "land of Jazer and the land of Gilead" — demanded, and finally ceded to the tribes of Reuben and Gad (Nu 32:3). It is named between Elealeh and Nebo, and is probably the same which, in a subsequent verse of the chapter and on later occasions, appears in the altered forms of SHIBMAH and SIBMAH SEE SIBMAH (q.v.).
