Shaveh-Kiriathaim [EBD]

plain of Kirja-thaim where Chedorlaomer defeated the Emims, the original inhabitants (Gen. 14:5). Now Kureiyat, north of Dibon, in the land of Moab.

Shaveh Kiriathaim [NAVE]

SHAVEH KIRIATHAIM, a valley in Moab, Gen. 14:5.


(plain of the double city), mentioned (Genesis 14:5) as the residence of the Emim at the time of Chedorlaomer?s incursion. Kiriathaim is named in the later history, though it has not been identified; and Shaveh Kiriathaim was probably the valley in or by which the town lay.


SHAVEH-KIRIATHAIM - sha'-ve-kir-ya-tha'-im (shaweh qiryathayim; en Saue te polei): Here Chedorlaomer is said to have defeated the Emim (Gen 14:5). the Revised Version margin reads "the plain of Kiriathaim." If this rendering is right, we must look for the place in the neighborhood of Kiriathaim of Moab (Jer 48:1, etc.), which is probably represented today by el-Qareiyat, about 7 miles to the North of Dibon.
