Bah´uhl-mee´on; Heb., “lord of habitation”

An area assigned to the tribe of Reuben (Num 32:3; Num 32:38; Josh 13:17; 1Chr 5:8). It was Moabite in the ninth century BCE when the Moabite king Mesha built a reservoir there. It may have been in Israelite hands again in the eighth century, but it reverted to Moabite control later (Jer 48:23; Ezek 25:9).
