possession, or valley of God, one of the encampments of the Israelites in the wilderness ( Numbers 21:19 ), on the confines of Moab. This is identified with the ravine of the Zerka M'ain, the ancient Callirhoe, the hot springs on the east of the Jordan, not far from the Dead Sea.
inheritance; valley of God
(torrents of God ), one of the halting-places of Israel in the latter part of their progress to Canaan. ( Numbers 21:19 ) It lay "beyond," that is, north of, the Amen, ver. ( Numbers 21:13 ) and between Mattanah and Bamoth, the next after Bamoth being Pisgah.
na-ha'-li-el, na-hal'-i-el (nachali'el, "torrent valley of God"; Codex Vaticanus Manael; Codex Alexandrinus Naaliel):
A place where Israel encamped on the way from Arnon to Jericho, named with Mattanah and Bamoth (Numbers 21:19). Eusebius, Onomasticon places it near to the Arnon. It is natural to seek for this "torrent valley" in one of the tributaries of the Arnon. It may be Wady Waleh, which drains a wide area to the Northeast of the Arnon; or perhaps Wady Zerqa Ma`in farther to the North.
