Easton's Bible Dictionary

Mattanah:

a gift, a station of the Israelites (Num 21:18,19) between the desert and the borders of Moab, in the Wady Waleh.

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Mattanah:

mat'-a-na (mattanah; Codex Vaticanus, Manthanaein; Codex Alexandrinus, Manthanein): A station of the Israelites which seems to have lain between Beer and Nahaliel (Nu 21:18 f). The name means "gift," and might not inappropriately be applied to a well in the wilderness (Budde translates "Out of the desert a gift"; see The Expository Times, VI, 482). Some would therefore identify it with Beer. This is improbable. There is now no clue to the place, but it must have lain Southwest of the Dead Sea.

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Mattanah:

(gift of Jehovah) a station the latter part of the wandering of the Israelites (Numbers 21:18-19). It was probably situated to the southeast of the Dead Sea.
