1. One of the chief towns of Bashan, where Og was defeated by the Israelites. Numbers 21:33-35 ; Deuteronomy 1:4 ; Deuteronomy 3:1,10 ; Joshua 12:4 ; Joshua 13:12,31 . It fell to the lot of Manasseh. It is identified with ed Deraah, 32 38' N, 36 6' E . It is a place of great natural strength, being surrounded by a labyrinth of clefts and crevasses in the rock. The houses are of stone, with stone roofs and stone doors. There is no water there, and the spot seems chosen for security. About 50 families of desperate character inhabit the place. Underneath the city are many large caves, forming a subterranean city, with streets and houses; but a recent traveller found the entrance blocked by a rock, and was told that the passage had been blown up to prevent the caves being used as a hiding place from justice.

2. City of Naphtali in the north, near Kedesh. Joshua 19:37 . Identified by some with Yater, 33 9' N, 35 20' E .
