John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And Moses sent to spy out Jaazer,.... Or Jazer, as it is called in Isaiah 16:9, another city that belonged to the Amorites, and which they had taken from the Moabites; and which came into the hands of the latter again, after the captivity of the ten tribes, as appears from the above places; according to JeromF19De locis Heb. fol. 92. G. , it was fifteen miles distant from Heshbon:

and they took the villages thereof; not the spies, as Jarchi, but the Israelites under Moses; who upon the return of the spies, and the report they made, marched towards it, and took it, and all the towns and villages round about it; for it seems to have been a principal city:

and drove out the Amorites that were there; that dwelt there, and were in possession of it; otherwise they would not have attacked it, had it, and its villages, been in the hands of the Moabites.

Thomas Coke Commentary on the Holy Bible

Numbers 21:32. And Moses sent to spy out Jaazer Another city belonging to Moab, but now in the possession of the Amorites, which the Israelites did not take at first. It should seem, from ch. Numbers 32:1. 2 Samuel 24:5-6 and 1 Chronicles 26:31 to have been situated not far from mount Gilead. St. Jerome places it about fifteen miles distant from Heshbon. After the captivity of the ten tribes, it fell again into the hands of the Moabites, Jeremiah 48:32.

Jazer, a famous city, 15 miles from Hesebon, given afterwards to the Levites. Moses "took the Amorrhites who were there" prisoners, according to the Hebrew; or, "drove them away," (Septuagint) putting to death those who continued to make resistance. (Calmet)
