People's Dictionary of the Bible - Pisgah
Pisgah (pĭz'gah), hill, or the height. The summit from which Moses, before his death, gained his view of the promised land. Peor was a peak near it. It was in Moab, one of the mountains of Abarim, and the top of Nebo. It was in the territory afterward assigned to Reuben, and thus was north of the Arnon. Numbers 21:20; Deuteronomy 3:27; Deuteronomy 4:49; Deuteronomy 34:1; Joshua 13:20. Pisgah had cultivated land. Balak brought Balaam "into the field of Zophim, to the top of Pisgah," and there "built seven altars." Numbers 23:14.

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Ashdoth-Pisgah
(Deuteronomy 3:17 ; Joshua 12:3 ; 13:20 ) in Authorized Version, but in Revised Version translated "slopes of Pisgah." In Deuteronomy 4:49 it is translated in the Authorized Version "springs of Pisgah." The name Ashdoth is translated "springs" in the Authorized Version, but "slopes" in the Revised Version, of Joshua 10:40,12:8 . It has been identified with the springs under Mount Nebo, now called 'Ayun Musa.

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Ashdoth Pisgah
("Springs of Pisgah," or "the hill") (Deuteronomy 3:17; Deuteronomy 4:49; Joshua 12:3; Joshua 13:20). The mountains E. of the Dead Sea are hereby defined; "the springs" is one of the leading physical divisions of the country, namely, those at the base of the Moabite mountains (Joshua 10:40; Joshua 12:8). Compare Numbers 21:15; "the stream (pouring) of the brooks (torrents)."

Bridgeway Bible Dictionary - Pisgah
It seems that Pisgah is not the name of a particular locality, but an ordinary Hebrew word used for the peak of a hill or mountain. Usually it is a peak that gives a good view over the surrounding countryside (Numbers 21:20; Numbers 23:13-14). The most commonly known Pisgah is the peak of Mt Nebo in the Abarim Range east of Jordan. This was the peak from which Moses viewed the land of Canaan before he died (Deuteronomy 3:27; Deuteronomy 32:49; Deuteronomy 34:1; see ABARIM).

Holman Bible Dictionary - Pisgah
(pihss' guh) Place name perhaps meaning, “the divided one.' Mountain in the Abarim range across the Jordan River from Jericho. Some Bible scholars believe it was part of Mount Nebo; others think it could have been a separate rise, either en-Neba or near modern Khirbet Tsijaga. God allowed Moses to view the Promised Land from the heights of Pisgah (Deuteronomy 34:1 ) but would not let him cross into Canaan. Israel had camped near Pisgah (Numbers 21:20 ). Balak took Balaam to its height so the prophet could see Israel and curse them (Numbers 23:14 ). It was a limit of Sihon's kingdom (Joshua 12:23 ); Ashdoth-pisgah in KJV) and also for the tribe of Reuben (Joshua 13:20 ).

The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Pisgah

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Pisgah
Mountain on the east of the Jordan. Balaam offered sacrifices there, and it was the spot from which Moses viewed the promised land, and near to which he died. It was associated with Nebo (q.v. ), and was said to be 'over against Jericho.' Numbers 21:20 ; Numbers 23:14 ; Deuteronomy 3:27 ; Deuteronomy 4:49 ; Deuteronomy 34:1 . The peak called Ras Siaghah, 31 46' N, 35 43' E , is probably the site.

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Pisgah
A ridge of the Abarim mountains W. from Heshbon. Nebo was a town on, or near, that ridge, lying on its western slope (Numbers 21:20; Numbers 32:3; Numbers 32:38; Deuteronomy 32:49; Deuteronomy 34:1). From Pisgah, Israel gained their first view of the Dead Sea and Jordan valley; hence Moses too viewed the land of promise. The correct designation for the mount is not "Nebo" (which has become usual for convenience sake) but "the mountain adjoining Nebo." In Scripture Nebo denotes only the town (Isaiah 15:2; Jeremiah 48:1-22). The uniform peakless nature of Pisgah caused its parts to be distinguished only by the names of the adjacent villages. It always has the article "THE Pisgah" E. of Jordan, near "the field of Moab, opposite Jericho." The field of Zophim was on it Ashsoth-Pisgah; Deuteronomy 3:17. (See ASHDOTH-PISGAH.)

Pisgah is derived from paasag "to divide," a detached range of Abarim. Tristram from a point about 4,500 ft. high, three miles S.W. of Heshbon and one and a half W. of Main, saw to the N. and E. the Gilead hills, and the vast Belka ocean of grain and grass; to the S., Her and Seir of Arabia; to the W., the Dead Sea and Jordan valley and the familiar objects near Jerusalem; and over Jordan, Gerizim's round top, and further the Esdraelon plain and the shoulder of Carmel; to the N. rose Tabor's outline, Gilboa and little Hermon (jebel Duhy); in front rose Ajlun's dark forests, ending in Mount Gilead, behind Es Salt (Ramoth Gilead) The name Pisgah survives only on the N.W. end of the Dead Sea, in the Ras el Feshkah (Hebrew: Rosh ha-Ρisgah , "top of Pisgah"). Jebel Siugah ("fragment") probably answers to Pisgah. It is "over against Jericho," and the view corresponds. It is a fragment cut off by declivities on all sides, and separated from Nebo by the wady Haisa.

Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Pisgah
a part of Mount Nebo, so called, being, in all probability, a distinct, and most likely the highest, summit of that mountain. Here Moses climbed to view the land of Canaan; and here he died.

The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Mount Pisgah
This is the same as Nebo, for the word Pisgah only means hill or top, from Pasag; so that Nebo, Pisgah, and Abarim, are one and the same, near mount Peor, over against Jericho, in the country of Moab. (See Numbers 21:20; Deuteronomy 34:1.) See Mount Nebo.

American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Pisgah
A mountain ridge, the northern part of the Abarim range, east of the Dead Sea; Nebo was one of its summits, Deuteronomy 32:49 34:1 . It was in the southern part of the kingdom of Sihon, Numbers 21:20 23:24 ; and afterwards belonged to the Reubenites, Joshua 12:3 13:20 .

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Pisgah
PISGAH . A mountain in the region of Moab, with a commanding view over both the desert ( Numbers 21:20 ) and Western Palestine. Hither the Israelites journeyed from Bamoth, and there took place the extraordinary episode of Balaam, who on the top of Pisgah built seven altars ( Numbers 23:14 ). Its principal distinction, however, is its being the scene of Moses’ vision of the Promised Land ( Deuteronomy 3:27 ; Deuteronomy 34:1 ) and of his death. It fell into the territory of Reuben ( Joshua 13:20 [AV [Note: Authorized Version.] Ashdoth-pisgah , as in Joshua 12:3 and Deuteronomy 3:17 ; RV [Note: Revised Version.] in all three ‘slopes (mg. ‘springs’) or Pisgah’]).

An alternative name for Pisgah is Neho (wh. see), referred to in Deuteronomy 32:49 as the scene of the death of Moses. The latter name is preserved by Jebel Nebâ , a range whose summit reaches a height of 2643 feet and commands a view of a large part of Western Palestine. It Isaiah 5 miles S.W. of Heshbon, and runs westward from the Moabite plateau.
