|ASHDOTH PISGAH |
ash'-doth piz'-ga ('ashdoth ha-picgah):
Thus the King James Version for the Revised Version (British and American) "The slopes (the Revised Version, margin springs) of Pisgah." The spurs and ravines, or the "shoulders" of Pisgah are meant. 'Ashedah is "a pouring out," and 'ashedoth are the slopes of a mountain from which springs gush forth. In Joshua 10:40; 12:8, 'Ashedoth, translated "springs" in the King James Version, is "slopes" in the Revised Version (British and American) (Deuteronomy 3:17; Joshua 12:3; 13:20). See PISGAH.
