Ramath-mizpeh: The height of Mizpeh or of the watch-tower
(Joshua 13:26) a place
mentioned as one of the limits of Gad. There were two Mizpehs on the
east of the Jordan. This was the Mizpeh where Jacob and Laban made a
covenant, "Mizpeh of Gilead," called also Galeed and Jegar-sahadutha.
It has been identified with the modern es-Salt, where the roads from
Jericho and from Shechem to Damascus unite, about 25 miles east of
the Jordan and 13 south of the Jabbok.
