Additional Links

Pisgah (pĭz'gah), hill, or the height. The summit from which Moses, before his death, gained his view of the promised land. Peor was a peak near it. It was in Moab, one of the mountains of Abarim, and the top of Nebo. It was in the territory afterward assigned to Reuben, and thus was north of the Arnon. Numbers 21:20; Deuteronomy 3:27; Deuteronomy 4:49; Deuteronomy 34:1; Joshua 13:20. Pisgah had cultivated land. Balak brought Balaam "into the field of Zophim, to the top of Pisgah," and there "built seven altars." Numbers 23:14.
