border

Easton's Bible Dictionary

people-waster, A city assigned to Manasseh ( Joshua 17:11 ), from which the Israelites, however, could not expel the Canaanites ( Judges 1:27 ). It is also called Bileam ( 1 Chronicles 6:70 ). It was probably the modern Jelamah, a village 2 1/2 miles north of Jenin.

Smith's Bible Dictionary

(devouring the people)

A city of Manasseh, with villages or towns dependent on it. ( Judges 1:27 ) It appears to have been situated in the territory of either Issachar or Asher. ( Joshua 17:11 ) The ascent of Gur was "at Ibleam," ( 2 Kings 9:27 ) somewhere near the present Jenin , probably to the north of it.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

ib'-le-am (yibhle'am);

A town in the territory of Issachar which was assigned to Manasseh (Joshua 17:11). This tribe, however, failed to expel the inhabitants, so the Canaanites continued to dwell in that land (Judges 1:27). It was on the route by which Ahaziah fled from Jehu. He was overtaken and mortally wounded "at the ascent of Gur, which is by Ibleam" (2 Kings 9:27). The name appears as Bileam in 1 Chronicles 6:70; and it probably corresponds to Belmen of Jth. It is now represented by the ruin of Bel'ameh on the West of the valley through which the road to the south runs, about half a mile from Jenin. In 2 Kings 15:10, where it is said that Zechariah the son of Jeroboam was slain by Shallum "before the people," this last phrase, which is awkward in the Hebrew, should be amended to read "in Bileam." Possibly "Gath-rimmon" in Joshua 21:25 is a clerical error for "Ibleam."
