Easton's Bible Dictionary
Small, a town on the east or south-east of the Dead Sea, to which Lot and his daughters fled from Sodom (Genesis 19:22,23
). It was originally called Bela (14:2,8). It is referred to by the prophets (Isaiah 15:5
) and (Jeremiah 48:34
). Its ruins are still seen at the opening of the ravine of Kerak, the Kir-Moab referred to in 2 Kings 3
, the modern Tell esh-Shaghur.
