Joshua 13:17

Joshua 13:17

Heshbon, and all her cities that [are] in the plain
Which was by Medeba, and reached to Dibon:

Dibon, and Bamothbaal, and Bethbaalmeon;
Dibon was rebuilt by Gad, though it belonged to Reuben, and perhaps was inhabited by both, being on the borders of each; and Bamothbaal signifies the high places of Baal; see ( Numbers 22:41 ) ; perhaps this is the same with Bamoth in the valley, ( Numbers 21:20 ) ; and Bethbaalmeon is the same with Baalmeon in ( Numbers 32:38 ) ; where it is highly probable was a temple of Baal, since both "beth" signifies an house, and "meon" an habitation.
