Moab/Ammon/Children of Lot

Post  A Bible Student on Sat Jan 03, 2015 11:32 pm

The Moabites and Ammonites were descendants of Lot.  Although borders changed over the years, they were generally located in present-day Jordan (and possibly southern Syria), near Jericho and shared a border with each other.

See: Map of Kingdoms around Israel circa 830BC

Genesis 19:36-38
Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.  And the first born bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.  And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.
Numbers 22:1
And the children of Israel set forward, and pitched in the plains of Moab on this side Jordan by Jericho.
