[SHEBAM]

ATS Bible Dictionary
Sibmah

A city of Reuben, Numbers 32:28; Joshua 13:19; Isaiah 16:8,9, speaks of the vines of Sibmah, which were cut down by the enemies of the Moabites; for that people had taken the city of Sibmah, Jeremiah 48:32, and other cities of Reuben, after this tribe had been carried into captivity by Tiglath-pileser, 2 Kings 15:29; 1 Chronicles 5:26. Jerome says that between Hesbon and Sibmah there was hardly the distance of five hundred paces.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Coolness; fragrance, a town in Reuben, in the territory of Moab, on the east of Jordan (Joshua 13:19); called also Shebam and Shibmah (Numbers 32:3, 38). It was famous for its vines (Isaiah 16:9; Jeremiah 48:32). It has been identified with the ruin of Sumieh, where there are rock-cut wine-presses. This fact explains the words of the prophets referred to above. It was about 5 miles east of Heshbon.
