Dibon


Pining; wasting. (1.) A city in Moab (Num. 21:30); called also "Dibon-gad (33:45), because it was built by Gad and Dimon (Isa." "15:9). It has been identified with the modern Diban, about 3" miles north of the Arnon and 12 miles east of the Dead Sea. (See Moabite Stone.) "(2.) A city of the tribe of Judah, inhabited after the Captivity (Neh. 11:25); called also Dimonah (Josh. 15:22). It is probably the modern ed-Dheib.
