Zophim, Field of
field of watchers, a place in Moab on the range of Pisgah ( Numbers 23:14 ). To this place Balak brought Balaam, that he might from thence curse the children of Israel. Balaam could only speak the word of the Lord, and that was blessing. It is the modern Tal'at-es-Safa. (See PISGAH .)
