Sibmah

SIBMAH (sĭb'ma, Heb. sevām). A town located east of the Jordan and belonging originally to Moab. It was finally taken by the Amorites led by King Sihon (Num.21.26). Later it was captured by and given to the tribe of Reuben (Josh.13.19). Most scholars feel it is to be identified with Sebam (Num.32.3) or Shibmah (Num.32.38 kjv). It was famous for its luxurious vines and fruits (Isa.16.8; Jer.48.32).
