Isaiah 15:2; "he is gone up to Bajith," rather, "to the temple," answering to "the sanctuary" (Isaiah 16:12) in a similar context. With the definite article "the," the "high places" (Bamoth) follow in the context. In the Moabite stone of Dibon there is inscribed: "I Mesha, son of Chemosh god, built Beth Bamoth, for it was destroyed, and Beth Diblathaim, and Beth Baal Meon." The Bajith, followed by Dibon, and Bamoth in Isaiah 15:2 correspond. Bajith, like Dibon, was a "high place." The peculiarity of Bajith was it had a sacred "house" or sanctuary, on the high place, to the national god Chemosh. In the same high places where they had exulted in their idol they shall weep, to find it unable to save them from destruction.
