Holman Bible Dictionary - Jahaz
(jay' haz) Moabite place name perhaps meaning, “landsite.” As they journeyed from the wilderness to the Promised Land, Israel defeated King Sihon there (Numbers 21:23-24 ; Deuteronomy 2:32-33 ; Judges 11:20-21 ). Isaiah's oracle against Moab described the isolated city of Jahaz as hearing the mourning of Heshbon and Elealeh (Isaiah 15:4 ). Jeremiah issued a similar warning (Jeremiah 48:34 ; compare Jeremiah 48:21 ). The name also appears with the Hebrew locative ah ending, thus being spelled Jahaza or Jahazah. Jahzah is also a variant spelling. It became part of the tribal territory of Reuben ( Joshua 13:18 ) and a city of the Levites (Joshua 21:36 ; compare 1 Chronicles 6:78 ). On the Moabite stone, King Mesha of Moab claims an Israelite king (perhaps Jehu) built Jahaz and used it as a base in his unsuccessful fight against Mesha, Chemosh, the Moabite god driving the Israelites out. Mesha then annexed the city to Dibon. It has been variously located at Libb, six miles north of Dibon; Aleiyan; khirbet el-Medeiyineh; and khirbet Iskander, four miles north of Dibon, being the most popular suggestions.

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Jahaz
JAHAZA (Joshua 13:18), JAHAZAH (Joshua 21:36), JAHZAH (Numbers 21:23; Deuteronomy 2:32; Judges 11:20; Isaiah 15:4; Jeremiah 48:21; Jeremiah 48:34). Here the battle was fought wherein Israel overcame Sibon and so won his whole territory between the Arnon and the Jabbok. Jahaza was assigned to Reuben, then to the Merarite Levites (1 Chronicles 6:78; Joshua 21:36). It was in the plain country, now the Belka, in the extreme S. of Sihon's land but N. of the Arnon. Doubtless the battle was fought along the slope of the hill still called Shihan. There is on it a network of cyclopean walls, whence the slings and arrows of Israel dislodged the Amorites according to Josephus. Thence the enemy fled two miles to the edge of the Arnon gorge.

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Jahaz
JAHAZ (in 1 Chronicles 6:78 , Jeremiah 48:21 Jahzah ). A town at which Sihon was defeated by Israel ( Numbers 21:23 , Deuteronomy 2:32 , Judges 11:20 ). After the crossing of the Arnon, messengers were sent to Sihon from the ‘wilderness of Kedemoth’ ( Deuteronomy 2:26 ), and he ‘went out against Israel into the wilderness and came to Jahaz’ ( Numbers 21:23 ). Jahaz is mentioned in connexion with Kedemoth ( Joshua 13:18 ; Joshua 21:36 ). These passages indicate a position for Jahaz in the S. E. portion of Sihon’s territory. Jahaz was one of the Levite cities of Reuben belonging to the children of Merari ( Joshua 13:18 ; Joshua 21:36 (see note in RVm [Note: Revised Version margin.] ], 1 Chronicles 6:78 ). According to the Moabite Stone (11:18 20), the king of Israel dwelt at Jahaz while at war with king Mesha, but was driven out, and the town was taken and added to Moabite territory. Isaiah ( Isaiah 15:4 ) and Jeremiah ( Jeremiah 48:21 ; Jeremiah 48:34 ) refer to it as in the possession of Moab. The site has not yet been identified.

Trodden down (called also Jahaza, Joshua 13:18 ; Jahazah, 21:36; Jahzah, 1 Chronicles 6:78 ), a town where Sihon was defeated, in the borders of Moab and in the land of the Ammonites beyond Jordan, and north of the river Arnon (Numbers 21:23 ; Deuteronomy 2:32 ). It was situated in the tribe of Reuben, and was assigned to the Merarite Levites (Joshua 13:18 ; 21:36 ). Here was fought the decisive battle in which Sihon (q.v.) was completely routed, and his territory (the modern Belka) came into the possession of Israel.
