Also called “valley of Zered.” The Israelites crossed this book marking an end to their wilderness wandering and entrance into the Promised Land (Numbers 21:12; Deuteronomy 2:13-14 ). It is usually identified with modern wadi el-Hesa which flows into the southeast end of the Dead Sea. The wadi is about 35 miles long and forms the boundary between Moab and Edom. The Brook of Zered is the same as the Brook of the Willows (Isaiah 15:7 ), the dry stream bed of 2 Kings 3:16 (see 2 Kings 3:22 ), and perhaps the same as the Brook of the Arabah (Amos 6:14 ), though see Brook of the Arabah .
