NIBSHAN nĭb’ shăn (הַנִּבְשָׁ֥ן). A city in the wilderness of Judah named between Secacah and the City of Salt (Josh 15:62); identified with Khirbet el-Maqari in el-Buqe’ah, SW of Jericho.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

A city in the Judean wilderness named between Secacah and the City of Salt (Jos 15:62). Eusebius, Onomasticon, knows the place but gives no clue to its identification. The site has not been recovered. Wellhausen suggests the emendation of nibhshan to kibhshan, "furnace" (Proleg. 2, 344).
