THISBE thĭs’ bĭ (Θίσβη). The place from which the Assyrians took Tobit captive. It is described in the Book of Tobit as being S of Kedesh-Naphtali in Galilee above Asher (Tobit 1:2). The site has not been identified.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

The home of Tobit whence he was carried into captivity to Babylon. It is said te be "on the right hand (i.e. South) of Kedesh-naphtali in Galilee" (Tobit 1:2). Some have thought that this was the native place of Elijah the Tishbite, but this is mere conjecture. The site has not been recovered. We need not expect strict geographical accuracy in the romance of Tobit, any more than in that of Judith.
