Josephus expressly states, that five years after the
destruction of Jerusalem, Nebuchadnezzar turned his arms
against the Ammonites and Moabites, and entirely subjugated
them; and it is probable, that the Arabs, and other nations
east of Judah, then took possession of their cities, and
enjoyed the fruits of their land. The country of Moab and
Ammon is now inhabited by the Bedouin Arabs; where they
pasture their flocks, and, no doubt, make the ruins of Rabbah,
their one proud capital, "a stable for camels," and other
cattle. See Note on 2; Sa 12:26.
