What does Numbers 21:11 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Numbers 21:11

And they journeyed from Oboth
How long they stayed there is not certain:

and pitched at Ijeabarim;
which, according to Bunting F11, was sixteen miles from Oboth; Jarchi says it was the way that passengers pass by Mount Nebo to the land of Canaan, and which divides between the land of Moab and the land of the Amorites:

in the wilderness which is before Moab;
called the wilderness of Moab, ( Deuteronomy 2:8 )

towards the sunrising;
the east side of the land of Moab, ( Judges 11:18 ) .
