Nob appears to have been a sacerdotal city of Benjamin or
Ephraim. Jerome says, that in his time the ruins of it might
be seen not far from Diospolis or Lydda. But the Rabbins
assert that Jerusalem might be seen from this town. The
tabernacle resided some time at Nob; and after it was
destroyed, it was removed to Gibeon; "and the day of Nob and
Gibeon were fifty-seven years." Maimonides in
Bethhabbechirah, c. 1.
