Nabajoth (Hebrew: נביות, Neḇāyōth; "Name means::heights"), also written in English as Nebaioth, was the firstborn son of son of::Ishmael, according to Genesis 25:13 .

Descendants

Nabajoth gave rise to the Nabataean Arabs who lived at Petra for centuries. The inscription of Ashurbanipal of Assyria calls the Nabaiate, the Nabajati or Nab'ati in the Akkadian documents and of course the Nabataeans of the Hellenistic-Roman period. Their own inscriptions render the name as nbtw. The Semitic root for Nabataean meant to 'gush forth water' (i.e. an oasis).
