(Jabneh, Jabneel) Yebna. Greek form of 'Jabneh', 1 Macc. 4:15. It was detached from Herod's kingdom and given to the Empress Livia, wife of Augustus in AD 10.
Jabneh "he [God] causes to be built" was a point on the N boundary of Judah between Mt. Baalah and the Mediterranean Sea. There was a constant struggle between the Danites and the Philistines. Uzziah captured this place along with Gath and Ashdod (2 Chron 26:6).
Josephus calls it Jamnia. It still exists as a good-sized village under the name of Jebuah, about two miles from the sea, seven miles S of Joppa.
