Zophim
        

field of. Near the top of Pisgah, from which Balaam had his second view of Israel's encampment (Numbers 23:14); it was N. of his former station and nearer Israel. It means "watchers." A tableland on the Abarim or Nebo range, where watchers in times of danger looked out for the foe, or else augurs watched for omens. Grove suggests its identity with Mizpah Moab. Porter, identifying Attarus with Pisgah, says a fertile plain, namely, Zophim field, surrounds the ruins of Main at the mountain's foot
