To the east of the Jordan River was the land of the Ammonites, whose capital city was Rabbah, or Rabbah-ammon. Though at times conquered, the city was repeatedly rebuilt. It is known today as Amman, capital of the present-day nation of Jordan (Deuteronomy 3:11; Jeremiah 49:1-2; Ezekiel 21:20; Amos 1:13-14). Most references to Rabbah in the Bible are related to conflicts between Ammon and Israel-Judah (e.g. 2 Samuel 11:1; 2 Samuel 12:26-31). (For map and other details see AMMON.)
