Nabo or Nebo (11); Sept., Na/3aD"), a town mentioned in several passages of the Old Testament, v. g., Num., xxxii, 3; Jer., xlviii, 1, 22; I Par., v, 8; Is., xv, 2, etc. In Numbers, xxxii, 3, it is mentioned between Saban and Beon, the latter being an abbreviation of Baalmeon. In the same chapter, verse 38, it is again mentioned between Cariathaim and Baalmeon, and it is found associated with the same names on the Mesa Stone (line 14). These and other indications go to show that the town was situated in the vicinity of Mt. Nebo, but the precise location cannot be determined. It belonged to the rich pasture lands which the tribes of Ruben and Gad asked of Moses in the distribution of the territory (Num., xxxii). The town had reverted to the Moabites at the time when Isaias prophesied against it (Is., xv, 2; of. Jer., xlviii, 1, 22). Mesa (lines 14-18) boasts of having taken it from the Israelites. According to St. Jerome (Comment. in Is., xv, 2, in P.L., XXIV, 168), the sanctuary of the idol Chemosh was in Nabo.
