Hebrew - Heshbon
Heshbon -

Intelligence, a city ruled over by Sihon, king of the Amorites (Joshua 3:10; 13:17). It was taken by Moses (Numbers 21:23-26), and became afterwards a Levitical city (Joshua 21:39) in the tribe of Reuben (Numbers 32:37). After the Exile it was taken possession of by the Moabites (Isaiah 15:4; Jeremiah 48:2,34,45). The ruins of this town are still seen about 20 miles east of Jordan from the north end of the Dead Sea. There are reservoirs in this district, which are probably the "fishpools" referred to in Cant 7:4.
