  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Arnon 
  swift,  the  southern  boundary  of  the  territory  of  Israel  beyond 
  Jordan,  separating  it  from  the  land  of  Moab  (Deut.  3:8,  16). 
  This  river  (referred  to  twenty-four  times  in  the  Bible)  rises  in 
  the  mountains  of  Gilead,  and  after  a  circuitous  course  of  about 
  80  miles  through  a  deep  ravine  it  falls  into  the  Dead  Sea  nearly 
  opposite  Engedi.  The  stream  is  almost  dry  in  summer.  It  is  now 
  called  el-Mujeb.  The  territory  of  the  Amorites  extended  from  the 
  Arnon  to  the  Jabbok.
