What is Sibmah?
        (coolness, or fragrance), a city east of the Jordan, built or fortified by the Reubenites; called also Shebam and Shibmah. Josh 13:19; Num 32:3, Acts 7:38. It is not noticed again until the prophet's lament over Moab. Isa 16:8-9; Jer 48:32. At that time it was a Moabite town noted for its grapes. Jerome says it was 500 paces from Heshbon. A trace of the name is found in the ruins es-Sameh, 4 miles east of Heshbon.
