    Jabesh [E] [H]

    (dry ).

    1. Father of Shallum, the fifteenth king of Israel. ( 2 Kings 15:10 2 Kings 15:13 2 Kings 15:14 )
    2. Jabesh-gilead, or Jabesh in the territory of Gilead. In its widest sense Gilead included the half tribe of Manasseh, ( 1 Chronicles 27:21 ) as well as the tribes of Gad and Reuben, ( Numbers 32:1-42 ) east of the Jordan; and of the cities of Gilead, Jabesh was the chief. It is first mentioned in ( Judges 21:8-14 ) Being attacked subsequently by Nahash the Ammonite, it gave Saul an opportunity of displaying his prowess in its defence. ( 1 Samuel 11:1-15 ) Eusebius places it beyond the Jordan, six miles from Pella on the mountain road to Gerasa; where its name is probably preserved in the Wady Yabes.
