Sibmah (1)

A town of Reuben, E. of Jordan (Joshua 13:19). (See SHIBMAH.) In Moab's hands afterward it was famed for its grapes (Isaiah 16:7-9). Jeremiah 48:32, "thy plants are gone over the sea," i.e. shall be transported beyond sea to Cyprus and lands subject to Babylon; or else "they wandered through the wilderness, they are gone over the Dead Sea," in wild luxuriance overrunning the wilderness round Moab and spreading round the sea so as to reach beyond to the other side. Sibmah was near Heshbon; "the lords of the pagan," the Assyrian princes invading Moab, destroyed all the luxuriant vines.
