Gibeah (/ˈɡɪbiə/; Hebrew:

גבעהGiv'a) is a place name appearing in several books of the Hebrew Bible. It is generally identified with Tell el-Fūl (Arabic for "mound of beans"), a hill in the northern reaches of modern Jerusalem, on the outskirts of the Pisgat Ze'ev and Shuafat neighborhoods. However, this identification was challenged by Israel Finkelstein in 2011.
