cisterns, (rendered "pits," Jeremiah 14:3 ; "locusts," Isaiah 33:4 ), a small place north of Jerusalem, whose inhabitants fled at the approach of the Assyrian army ( Isaiah 10:31 ). It is probably the modern el-Isawiyeh.
(grasshoppers ), a village north of Jerusalem, ( Isaiah 10:31 ) apparently between Anathoth (the modern Anata ) and the ridge on which Nob was situated.
ge'-bim (gebhim, "trenches"):
A place named only in Isaiah 10:31. Some would place it at Jebia, identifying it with the Geba of Eusebius, 5 Roman miles from Gophna (modern Jifneh), on the way to Shechem. Its place, however, in the order of names, after Anathoth, seems to point to some position South of that village, to the Northeast of Jerusalem.
