Hebrew - Ar
AR

(AWr) Place name meaning, “city.” Town or northern border of Moab on southern bank of Arnon River (Numbers 21:15, Numbers 21:28). Israel celebrated its defeat with a proverbial taunt song (Numbers 21:28). God refused to let Israel occupy Ar, having designated it for Lot's descendants, the Moabites (Deuteronomy 2:9). Israel could only pass through Ar (Deuteronomy 2:18), evidently the region controlled by the city-state. Ar provided provisions for the Israelites as they passed through on the last legs of the wilderness wandering (Deuteronomy 2:29). Isaiah used a threatening situation in Ar to announce a time when Moab would seek protection from Judah (Isaiah 15:1). The exact location of the city is not known.
