Ar

Ar (Ahr)

A city or a region or both. The main references are found in (Num 21:15, Num 21:28), both of which relate it to Moabite border territory, and (Deut 2:9) (given to Lot’s descendants), (Deut 2:18) (marking the Moabite boundary), and (Deut 2:29) (settled by Moabites). In (Isa 15:1) its parallel citation with Kir as a main Moabite city suggests city rather than regional identity.
