1. A conspicuous mountain in Galilee, about seven miles east of Nazareth. It formed a boundary to Issachar and Zebulon. Its sides are well wooded, and on the summit is an irregular plain of about a mile in circuit, with ruins of fortifications. The height of it is 1,843 feet. Joshua 19:22 ; Judges 4:6-14 ; Judges 8:18 ; Psalm 89:12 ; Jeremiah 46:18 ; Hosea 5:1 . It is now called Jebel et Tor, 32 41' N, 35 23' E . Tradition makes this the mount of Transfiguration; but it is more probable that some part of mount Hermon was chosen for the transfiguration. This has good moral associations (cf. Psalm 133:3 ), and would be more private than Tabor.

2. The 'plain of Tabor' in 1 Samuel 10:3 should be read the 'oak of Tabor' as in the R.V.

3. Levitical city in the tribe of Zebulun. 1 Chronicles 6:77 . The list of Levitical cities in Joshua 21 does not contain this name. See CHESULLOTH.
