Zeboim

“Gazelles or roes. (1.) One of the “five cities of the plain” of” “Sodom, generally coupled with Admah (Gen. 10:19; 14:2; Deut.” “29:23; Hos. 11:8). It had a king of its own (Shemeber), and was” therefore a place of some importance. It was destroyed along with the other cities of the plain. “(2.) A valley or rugged glen somewhere near Gibeah in Benjamin (1 Sam. 13:18). It was probably the ravine now bearing the name “Wady Shakh-ed-Dub’a, or “ravine of the hyena,” north of Jericho.” “(3.) A place mentioned only in Neh. 11:34, inhabited by the Benjamites after the Captivity.
