Elealeh

Elea´leh, a town of the Reubenites east of the Jordan (; ); but which is named by the prophets as a city of the Moabites (; ; ). It is usually mentioned along with Heshbon; and accordingly travelers find in the neighborhood of that city a ruined place, bearing the name of El Aal, which doubtless represents Elealeh. It stands upon the summit of a hill, and takes its name from its situation, Aal meaning 'high.' It commands the whole plain, and the view from it is very extensive. It is about a mile and a quarter north-east of Heshbon.
