Treasury of Scripture

Then went Abimelech to Thebez, and encamped against Thebez, and took it.

Thebez.









(50) Thebez.--One of the cities in the league of "Baal of the Covenant," perhaps, Tubas, ten miles north-east of Shechem, on a mound among the hills.

Verse 50. - Thebez. A place so called still existed in the time of Eusebius between Neapolis (i.e. Shechem) and Scythopolis (i.e. Beth-shean), about thirteen miles from Shechem. It still survives in the large and beautiful village of Tubas, which, Robinson tells us, is on the Roman road between Nabulus and Beishan. Thebez had evidently joined the rebellion against Abimelech.
