The first of these is the same with Nimrah, ( Numbers 32:3 ) , and the other is the same with Betharam, ( Joshua 13:27 ) , it is called in the Jerusalem Talmud F18, Bethramtha, and so by the Syrians, Bethramphta; and to the same place Herod gave the name of Livias or Julias F19: these cities the children of Gad built or repaired for their families:

and folds for sheep;
they also built for their cattle, as they promised to do, and Moses enjoined them, ( Numbers 32:16 Numbers 32:24 Numbers 32:26 ) .
