What is Jeshimon?
        (the waste),- a name designating the position of Pisgah and Peor, which are described as "looketh toward Jeshimon." Num 21:20 Num 23:28. The word may not be a proper name, but a general term for any wilderness, and may thus be applied to different places at different times. Grove would place Jeshimon on the west side of the Dead Sea, toward En-gedi; Porter suggests that there may have been two Jeshimons, one east of the Jordan connected with Pisgah, and another west of the Jordan; Conder, with Grove, proposes to identify Jeshimon with the plateau above the Dead Sea, on its west side, and called el Bukein', the most desolate country in Palestine.
