ked'-e-moth, ke-de'-moth (qedhemoth, "eastern parts"):
From the wilderness to which this town gave its name, Moses sent messengers to Sihon, king of the Amorites in Heshbon (Deuteronomy 2:26). It was given by Moses to the tribe of Reuben (Joshua 13:18), and assigned to the Merarite Levites (Joshua 21:37; 1 Chronicles 6:79). It must probably be sought on the upper course of the Arnon. Buhl (GAP, 268) suggests that it may be identified with Umm er-Resas.
