From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Nob
    high place, a city of the priests, first mentioned in the
    history of David's wanderings (1 Sam. 21:1). Here the tabernacle
    was then standing, and here Ahimelech the priest resided. (See AHIMELECH.) From Isa. 10:28-32 it seems to have been
    near Jerusalem. It has been identified by some with el-Isawiyeh,
    one mile and a half to the north-east of Jerusalem. But
    according to Isa. 10:28-32 it was on the south of Geba, on the
    road to Jerusalem, and within sight of the city. This
    identification does not meet these conditions, and hence others
    (as Dean Stanley) think that it was the northern summit of Mount
    Olivet, the place where David "worshipped God" when fleeing from
    Absalom (2 Sam. 15:32), or more probably (Conder) that it was
    the same as Mizpeh (q.v.), Judg. 20:1; Josh. 18:26; 1 Sam. 7:16,
    at Nebi Samwil, about 5 miles north-west of Jerusalem.
      After being supplied with the sacred loaves of showbread, and
    girding on the sword of Goliath, which was brought forth from
    behind the ephod, David fled from Nob and sought refuge at the
    court of Achish, the king of Gath, where he was cast into
    prison. (Comp. titles of Ps. 34 and 56.)
