Transcript THE SOUTHERN BORDERLAND. 20I transparent waters then sparkle with a sapphire hue, and the mountains glow with variegated tints. All animated nature also seems to quicken into life, and flocks of storks and era: may be seen flying overhead (see page 200). The Ghor, or low-lying plain at the northern THE MOUNTAINS OF MOAB FROM ENGEDI. At this point the Dead Sea is about nine miles in width. There is a continuous beach of varying breadth along the western shore. and southern ends of the lake, teems with an almost tropical vegetation, and the rivulets which dash down the ravines in the steep cliffs bring down the verdure with them almost to the Dead Sea brink. Moab is a large flat plateau descending in abrupt cliffs on its western side into the Dead Sea and the Jordan Valley.* The scene is full of the deepest historical interest: the cliffs, which face the spectator as he gazes on them from Engedi, are divided by the great chasm of Wady Mojeb, the Anion of the Bible (see engraving). From yonder heights Balaam blessed Israel, and Moses looked upon the promised land which he might never enter. * For Canon Tristram's description of the northern part of the Dead Sea refer to pages 154—161. vol. 1., and Dead Sea, Moab Mountains, and Jordan Valley, see pages 152, 159. i63- l65> l67- and l68.
