  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  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  (1  Sam.  28:4;  31:1-8;  2  Sam.  1:6-21;  21:12;  1  Chr.  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"  (2  Sam.  1:19-27).
