Jabesh
Dry.
Or Jabesh-Gilead, a chief city of Gilead, east of the Jordan, connected with several important events of Israelite history (Judg. 21: 8-14; 1 Sam. 11; 1 Sam. 31: 11-13; 2 Sam. 2: 4-5; 2 Sam. 21: 12; 2 Sam. 15: 10-14). It was the men of Jabesh-Gilead who took Saul’s body down from the walls of Beth-shan and buried it under an oak tree in Jabesh-Gilead (1 Chr. 10: 11 ff.).
