Ba'moth (Heb. Bamoth', בָּמוֹת, heights; Sept. Βαμώθ), the forty-seventh station of the Israelites, on the borders of Moab (Nu 21:19-20);

according to Eusebius and Jerome (Onomast. s.v. Βαβώθ, Bamoth), a city near the river Arnon. As it was the next encampment before reaching Pisgah (usually identified with Jebel Attarus, SEE NEBO ), it may not improbably be identified with Jebel-Humeh, immediately east, a position which seems to agree with the circumstances of all the notices. Kruse, however (in Seetzen's Reise, 4:225), thinks it the place now called Waleh, on the wady of the same name. It is probably the same place elsewhere called BAMOTH-BAAL (Jos 13:17).
