Dibon (dî'bon), wasting. The name of two towns. 1. Dibon in Moab. Numbers 21:30; Isaiah 15:2. It was built by Gad, Numbers 32:34, and hence called Dibon-gad; was assigned to Reuben, Joshua 13:9; Joshua 13:17; was also called Dimon. Isaiah 15:9. It afterward returned to Moab, Isaiah 15:2; Jeremiah 48:18; Jeremiah 48:22; now called Dhîbân, about 12 miles east of the Dead Sea and 3 miles north of the Arnon.
