Nob was a place in Israel in the vicinity of Jerusalem. It may have been located close to Bahurim, near the Mount of Olives or possibly further north at Tell Shuafat. It likely belonged to the Tribe of Benjamin, Jerusalem being at the border between Benjamin and Tribe of Judah.
In the Bible, Nob is where David fled to the high priest Ahimelech and where he received the sword of Goliath, which was kept. Later Saul came to Nob with Doeg the Edomite. Saul was angry with Achimelech for helping David, and Doeg put Achimelech and the other priests to death, before killing all the men, women and children of the town. (1 Samuel chapters 21 and 22)
