Arnon


Ar’non (roaring), the river or torrent which formed the boundary between Moab and the Amorites, on the north of Moab, Num. 21:13, 14, 24, 26; Judges 11:22, and afterwards between Moab and Israel (Reuben). Deut. 2:24, 36; 3:8, 12, 16; 4:48; Josh. 12:1, 2; 13:9, 16; Judges 11:13, 26. There can be no doubt that the Wady el-Mojeb of the present day is the Arnon. Its principal source is near Katrane, on the Haj route.
