Gibeon (Hebrew: גִּבְעוֹן‎, Gīḇəʻōn; Ancient Greek: Γαβαων, romanized: Gabaon) was a Canaanite and Israelite city north of Jerusalem. According to Joshua 10:12 and Joshua 11:19, the pre-conquest inhabitants, the Gibeonites, were Hivites; according to 2 Samuel 21:2 they were Amorites. The remains of Gibeon are located on the southern edge of the Palestinian village of al-Jib.
