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 (1 Samuel 28:4 ; 31:1-8 ; 2 Samuel 1:6-21 ; 21:12 ; 1 Chronicles 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 Samuel 1:19-27 ).

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Gilboa
("bubbling fountain"), namely, of Jezreel; see below. The mountain range N.E. of the plain, and over the city, of Jezreel, extending ten miles from W. to E. (1 Samuel 28:4; 1 Samuel 29:1.) The scene of the death of Saul and Jonathan (1 Samuel 31:1; 2 Samuel 1:6,21: "ye mountains (for there is not merely one mountain) of Gilboa, let there be no dew, neither rain upon you, nor fields of firstfruit offerings," i.e. producing fruit from which firstfruits are offered; 1 Samuel 21:12; 1 Chronicles 10:1; 1 Chronicles 10:8).

The Philistines encamped on the N. side of the plain at Shunem; Saul on the S. side, round the fount of Jezreel (Harod, Judges 7:1) at the foot of Gilboa. The fountain is still to be seen half a mile from Jezreel's ruins. The village Jelbou is on the mountain top. The height of the hill is about 500 ft. above the plain; the sides are as bore and barren as David's poetical elegy desired them to be (excepting one green table land where perhaps the last struggle took place), and contrast strongly with the fertile plain beneath.

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Gilboa
GILBOA ( 1 Samuel 28:4 ; 1Sa 31:1 ; 1 Samuel 31:8 , 2 Samuel 1:6 ; 2Sa 1:21 ; 2 Samuel 21:12 , 1 Chronicles 10:1 ; 1 Chronicles 10:8 ). A range of hills, now called Jebel Fakû‘a , on the E. boundary of the Plain of Esdraelon. They run from Zer‘in (Jezreel) due S. E., and from the eastern extremity a prolongation runs S. towards the hills of Samaria. They are most imposing from the Vale of Jezreel and Jordan Valley, but nowhere reach a height of more than 1700 feet above sea level. The little village of Jelbun on the slopes of Jebel Fakû’a is thought to retain an echo of the name Gilboa. The slopes of these hills are steep, rugged, and bare. At the N. foot lies ’Ain Jalud , almost certainly the spring of Harod (wh. see).
