TABOR

(tay' bawr) Place name of uncertain meaning, perhaps, “height.” 1. A mountain in the valley of Jezreel. About six miles east of Nazareth, it has played an important role in Israel's history since the period of the conquest. It served as a boundary point for the tribes of Naphtali,

Issachar, and Zebulun (Joshua 19:12,Joshua 19:22), where the tribes worshiped early (Deuteronomy 33:18-19). Barak gathered an army at Tabor to defend against Sisera (Judges 4:6). Apparently, it was the site of false worship (Hosea 5:1). Tradition holds that Tabor was the site of Jesus' transfiguration (Mark 9:2), although no evidence exists to validate the claim.

2. Levitical city (1 Chronicles 6:77), apparently replacing Nahalal in the earlier list (Joshua 21:35). It may be khirbet Dabura.

3. The “Plain of Tabor” (1 Samuel 10:3) was apparently near Gibea.
