Jaazer: He (God) helps, a city of the Amorites on the east of Jordan, and
assigned, with neighbouring places in Gilead, to Gad
(Joshua 13:25) It was allotted to the Merarite Levites
In David's time it was occupied by the Hebronites, i.e., the
descendants of Kohath
(1 Chronicles 26:31) It is mentioned in the "burdens"
proclaimed over Moab
(Isaiah 16:8,9; Jeremiah 48:32) Its site is marked by
the modern ruin called Sar or Seir, about 10 miles west of Amman, and
12 from Heshbon. "The vineyards that once covered the hill-sides are
gone; and the wild Bedawin from the eastern desert make cultivation of
any kind impossible."
