Dictionary

Holman Bible Dictionary - Ibleam
(ihb' lih uhm) Place name meaning, “he swallowed the people.” City in tribal territory of Issachar but given to tribe of Manasseh (Joshua 17:11 ). Many Bible students think Ibleam was the original reading for the Levite city in Joshua 21:25 , where the Hebrew text now reads “Gath-rimmon,” also read in Joshua 21:24 . A copyist may have copied the name from Joshua 21:24 into Joshua 21:25 . Some Greek manuscripts read Iebatha, perhaps a corruption of Ibleam. 1 Chronicles 6:70 reads Bileam, pointing to Ibleam as original. Other Greek manuscripts read Beth-Shean. Manasseh could not conquer Ibleam ( Judges 1:27 ). Jehu, in his coup against Jehoram, king of Israel, also mortally wounded Ahaziah, king of Judah, near Ibleam (2 Kings 9:27 ). Many Bible students also read Ibleam as the place of attack in 2 Kings 15:10 (REB, TEV, RSV, but not NRSV). The Hebrew text either uses an Aramaic pronoun otherwise unknown in Hebrew meaning, “before”; or it refers to a place Kabal-am otherwise unknown. Some Greek manuscripts read Ibleam. Normal text procedure would see Ibleam as the easier reading adopted in view of 2 Kings 9:27 by a copyist or translator who did not understand the Hebrew text. Ibleam is modern bir Belalmeh about a mile southwest of Jenin.
Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Ibleam
A city with dependent villages, belonging to Manasseh, yet situated in Asher or Issachar (probably the latter). (See GUR.) Near Jenin (Judges 1:27; Joshua 17:11; 2 Kings 9:27). Perhaps the Bileam of 1 Chronicles 6:70, and Gathrimmon. (See BILEAM; GATHRIMMON.)
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Ibleam
IBLEAM . A town belonging to West Manasseh ( Joshua 17:11 , Judges 1:27 ). It is mentioned also in 2 Kings 9:27 in connexion with the death of king Ahaziah, who fled by the way of Beth-haggan and ‘the ascent of Gur, which is by Ibleam.’ The Biblical data seem to be well satisfied by the modern ruin Bel‘ ame , some 13 miles E. of N. of Samaria, more than half-way to Jezreel.
In 2 Kings 15:10 (AV [1] and RV [2] ) ‘before the people’ should certainly be emended to ‘in Ibleam.’ Gath-rimmon of Joshua 21:25 is a scribal error for Ibleam . It is the same place that is called Bileam in 1 Chronicles 6:70 .
Morrish Bible Dictionary - Ibleam

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Ibleam
People-waster, a city assigned to Manasseh (Joshua 17:11 ), from which the Israelites, however, could not expel the Canaanites (Judges 1:27 ). It is also called Bileam (1 Chronicles 6:70 ). It was probably the modern Jelamah, a village 2 1/2 miles north of Jenin.
