Ramath Mizpah

RAMATH MIZPEH (rā'măth mĭz'pĕ, Heb. rāmath-mitspeh, the heights, or the watchtower). The northern boundary line of the tribe of Gad (Josh.13.26). It is probably the same place that marked the early sanctuary erected by Jacob and Laban as a witness (Gen.31.46-Gen.31.48). It has the triple names of Mizpeh, Galeed, and Jegar Sahadutha. Mizpeh implies the idea of watching, while the other two names convey the thought of a heap of stones set up as a witness between two contending parties. Probably Mizpeh is the same as Ramoth Gilead, so famous in the subsequent history of Israel.


RAMATH-MIZPEH rā’ mĭth mĭz’ pə (רָמַ֥ת הַמִּצְפֶּ֖ה). A town assigned to the tribe of Gad in the division of Pal.; it is mentioned as being between Heshbon and Betonim (Josh 13:26).
