one of the five cities which were destroyed by fire from heaven, and buried under the waters of the Dead Sea, Genesis 14:2 ; Deuteronomy 29:23 . It was the most easterly of all those which were swallowed up; and there is some probability that it was not entirely sunk under the waters; or that the inhabitants of the country built a new city of the same name upon the eastern shore of the Dead Sea; for Isaiah, according to the Septuagint, says, "God will destroy the Moabites, the city of Ar, and the remnant of Adama."
