Mizpah or Mizpeh (Hebrew: מִצְפָּה, Mizpah, "watch-tower; the look-out") was a city of Benjamin. It was located northwest of Jerusalem. In this place Saul was presented to the people as king. Some identify this city with Tell en-Nasbeh, seven miles north of Jerusalem but W. F. Albright and others locate Mizpeh at Nebī Samwîl four miles southwest of Tell en-Nasbeh.[1] This city was named in the list of the allotment between Beeroth and Chephirah and apparently located nearby Ramah and Gibeon (Joshua 18:26 ).[2]
