KERIOTH . A city of Moab, named in Jeremiah 48:24 ; Jeremiah 48:41 , Amos 2:2 , and in line 13 of the Moabite Stone. It has been identified with Ar, the capital city of Moab, as that has been with Rabbah both identifications being precarious. More is to be said for Kerioth being the same as Kir-heres of Isaiah 16:11 and of Jeremiah 48:31 ; Jeremiah 48:36 . The latter is a stronghold to this day, and fits in with the suggestion of the passages above that Kerioth was a capital city of Moab, and the seat of the worship of Chemosh.
