Sibmah

Sibmah [N] [H] [S]

coolness; fragrance, a town in Reuben, in the territory of Moab, on the east of Jordan ( Joshua 13:19 ); called also Shebam and Shibmah ( Numbers 32:3 Numbers 32:38 ). It was famous for its vines ( Isaiah 16:9 ; Jeremiah 48:32 ). It has been identified with the ruin of Sumieh, where there are rock-cut wine-presses. This fact explains the words of the prophets referred to above. It was about 5 miles east of Heshbon.
