Dinhabah was an Edomite city mentioned in Genesis 36, the capital of King Bela ben Beor. The Hebrew name דִּנְהָבָה may mean "robbers' den". Dinhabah may have been located on the site of modern Dibdiba, a little northeast of Petra.
The name is not uncommon among the Shemitic races. Ptolemy mentions a Danaba (Δανάβα) near Palmyra Syria which was latter a bishop's see, and according to Zosimus there was a Danabe (Δανάβη) in Babylonia.
