Tib'hath (Heb. Tibchath', טַבחִת, slaughter or [Furst] extension; Sept. [repeating the preposition],. Ματαβέθ ; Vulg. Thebath), a city of Hadadezer, king of Zobah (1Ch 18:8), which in 2Sa 8:8 is called BETAH, probably by an accidental transposition: of the first two letters. If Aram- Zobah be the country between the Euphrates and Coele-Syria, we must look for Tibhath on the eastern skirts of the Antilibanus, or of its continuation, the Jebel Shahshabu and the Jebel Rieha. But Furst (Heb. Lex. s.v.) thinks that "the city Thcebata, in the north-west of Mesopotamia (Pliny, Hist. Nat. 6:30), or the place θεβηθά of Arrian (in Steph. Byz.), which lay, according to the Peutinger Tables (11, e), south of Nisibis, may refer to this name."
