 Mo·ab /ˈmoˌæb/

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    the seed of the father, or, according to others, the desirable
    land, the eldest son of Lot (Gen. 19:37), of incestuous birth.
      (2.) Used to denote the people of Moab (Num. 22:3-14; Judg.
    3:30; 2 Sam. 8:2; Jer. 48:11, 13).
      (3.) The land of Moab (Jer. 48:24), called also the "country
    of Moab" (Ruth 1:2, 6; 2:6), on the east of Jordan and the Dead
    Sea, and south of the Arnon (Num. 21:13, 26). In a wider sense
    it included the whole region that had been occupied by the
    Amorites. It bears the modern name of Kerak.
      In the Plains of Moab, opposite Jericho (Num. 22:1; 26:63;
    Josh. 13:32), the children of Israel had their last encampment
    before they entered the land of Canaan. It was at that time in
    the possession of the Amorites (Num. 21:22). "Moses went up from
    the plains of Moab unto the mountain of Nebo, to the top of
    Pisgah," and "died there in the land of Moab, according to the
    word of the Lord" (Deut. 34:5, 6). "Surely if we had nothing
    else to interest us in the land of Moab, the fact that it was
    from the top of Pisgah, its noblest height, this mightiest of
    the prophets looked out with eye undimmed upon the Promised
    Land; that it was here on Nebo, its loftiest mountain, that he
    died his solitary death; that it was here, in the valley over
    against Beth-peor, he found his mysterious sepulchre, we have
    enough to enshrine the memory in our hearts."
