Ar, Ar of Moab

See also [[Ar]]<br /><br />

<hr />

Ar does have the same radical letters as the common Heb. word for city. The suggestion that Ar was the capital city of the Moabites is worth noting.<br /><br />

<bibleref ref="Num.21.15">Numbers 21:15</bibleref> and <bibleref ref="Deut.2.9">Deuteronomy 2:9</bibleref> and <bibleref ref="Deut.2.28">28</bibleref> all use Ar in parallel with Moab itself, thus presenting the possibility that this was another term for an area of Moab. The modern site of el-Misna is a plausible suggestion for Ar’s location.
