From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:
   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.)
     

From Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's) [hitchcock]:
   Nob, discourse; prophecy
