Beth-jesh'imoth. (house of deserts). Beth-jesh'imoth or Jes'imoth, a town or place east of Jordan, on the lower level at the south end, of the Jordan valley, Numbers 33:49, and named with Ashdod-pisgah and Beth-peor.

It was one of the limits of the encampment of Israel, before crossing the Jordan. Later, it was allotted to Reuben, Joshua 12:3; Joshua 13:20, but came at last, into the hands of Moab, and formed one of the cities which were "the glory of the country." Ezekiel 25:9.
