ELEALAH:

Town of the Moabite plateau, conquered by Gad and Reuben and rebuilt by the latter (Num. xxx ii. 3, 37). It is mentioned, together with the town of Heshbon, in the prophecies concerning Moab (Isa. xvi. 9). Elealah was still known in Roman times, and is to-day identified with the mound of débris called "Al-'Al" about a mile north of Heshbon.
