Sibmah

Sibmah (Sib´muh)

A place in the rich Moabite plateau allocated to the tribe of Reuben (Num 32:38; “Sebam,” Num 32:3; Josh 13:19). In later prophetic oracles it was described as Moabite territory (Isa 16:6-9; Jer 48:31-32) known for vineyards. It may be modern Qurn el-Kibsh, some five miles southwest of Hesban.
