  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Jahaz 
  trodden  down  (called  also  Jahaza,  Josh.  13:18;  Jahazah,  21:36; 
  Jahzah,  1  Chr.  6:78),  a  town  where  Sihon  was  defeated,  in  the 
  borders  of  Moab  and  in  the  land  of  the  Ammonites  beyond  Jordan, 
  and  north  of  the  river  Arnon  (Num.  21:23;  Deut.  2:32).  It  was 
  situated  in  the  tribe  of  Reuben,  and  was  assigned  to  the 
  Merarite  Levites  (Josh.  13:18;  21:36).  Here  was  fought  the 
  decisive  battle  in  which  Sihon  (q.v.)  was  completely  routed,  and 
  his  territory  (the  modern  Belka)  came  into  the  possession  of 
  Israel.  This  town  is  mentioned  in  the  denunciations  of  the 
  prophets  against  Moab  (Isa.  15:4;  Jer.  48:34).
