JOGBEHAH

jog'-be-ha (yoghbechah):

A city in Gilead assigned to Gad and fortified by that tribe (Numbers 32:35). It lay on the line along which Gideon chased the Midianites (Judges 8:11), and the indication there leaves no doubt that it is represented today by Ajbeihat. The name attaches to 3 groups of ruins which date from Roman times. The position is about 7 miles Northwest of `Amman, and about midway between that city and the town of es-SalT. It stands 3,468 ft. above the level of the Mediterranean.
