beth -jesh´i -moth ( בּית הישׁמת , bēth ha -yeshı̄mōth ; Codex Vaticanus, Ἁισιμώθ , Haisimō̇th ; Codex Alexandrinus, Ασιμώθ , Asimō̇th , and other variants (see DB , under the word)): Mentioned as the point in the south from which the camp of Israel stretched to Abel-shittim in the plains of Moab (Numbers 33:49 ). In Joshua 12:3 the way to Beth-jeshimoth is described as South of the Arabah, near the Dead Sea. It was in the lot assigned to Reuben ( Joshua 13:20 ), At what times and how long it was actually held by Israel we do not know; but it appears in Ezekiel 25:9 as belonging to Moab. It may be identical with Khirbet es -Suweimeh , where there are some ruins and a well, about 3 miles East of the mouth of the Jordan.
