Beeroth Bene-jaakan

BEEROTH BENE-JAAKAN bĭr’ ŏth bĕn’ ĭ jā'-ə kən (בְּאֵרֹ֥ת בְּנֵי־יַעֲקָ֖ן; LXX βηρωθ υἱω̂ν Ιακμμ; wells of the sons of Jaakan). One of the stations on the wilderness wanderings of the Israelites, near the border of Edom. It is the last stop before Moserah (Deut 10:6). The name is shortened to Bene-Jaakan, and the place is reached after Moseroth (Num 33:31). The site is generally identified with modern Birein.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

A desert camp of the Israelites mentioned before Moserah (De 10:6). In Nu 33:31,32 the name is given simply "Bene-jaakan," and the situation after Moseroth.
