- One of the "five cities of the plain" of Sodom, generally coupled with Admah (Gen. 10:19; 14:2; Deut.29:23; Hos. 11:8). It had a king of its own ("Shemeber"), and was therefore a place of some importance. It was destroyed along with the other cities of the plain.
- A valley or rugged glen somewhere near Gibeah in Benjamin (1 Sam. 13:18). It was probably the place now bearing the name Wadi Shaykh ad-Dub'a "Ravine of the Chief of the Hyenas" north of Jericho.
- A place mentioned only in Nehemiah 11:34, inhabited by the Benjamites after the Babylonian captivity.
