Easton's Bible Dictionary

Gilboa:

boiling spring, a mountain range, now Jebel Fukua', memorable as the scene of Saul's disastrous defeat by the Philistines. Here also his three sons were slain, and he himself died by his own hand (1Sa 28:4; 31:1-8; 2Sa 1:6-21; 21:12; 1Ch 10:1,8). It was a low barren range of mountains bounding the valley of Esdraelon (Jezreel) on the east, between it and the Jordan valley. When the tidings of this defeat were conveyed to David, he gave utterance to those pathetic words in the "Song of the Bow" (2Sa 1:19-27).

Gilboa:

revolution of inquiry

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Gilboa:

(a bubbling spring). a mountain range on the eastern side of the plain of Esdraelon, rising over the city of Jezreel (compare 1 Samuel 28:4 with 1 Samuel 29:1). It is mentioned in Scripture only in connection with one event in Israelitish history, the defeat and death of Saul and Jonathan by the Philistines (1 Samuel 31:11; 2 Samuel 1:6; 21:12; 1 Chronicles 10:1; 10:8). Of the identity of Gilboa with the ridge which stretches eastward from the ruins of Jezreel no doubt can be entertained. The village is now called Jelbou.
