  1. A halting-place of the Israelites near Arnon, in Moab, where they stopped during their wanderings in the desert (Numbers 21:16). On the finding of the well a song was composed (Numbers 21:17,18): one of the earliest poetic pieces of the Bible. See an article by Budde in "The New World," March, 1895.
  2. A place to which Jotham fled from his brother Abimelech (Judges 9:21). This place has not been identified, though so much appears probable, that it was within the territory assigned to Manasseh.
