coolness; fragrance, a town in Reuben, in the territory of Moab, on the east of Jordan (Josh 13:19); called also Shebam and Shibmah (Num 32:3, 38). It was famous for its vines (Isa 16:9; Jer 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.
