Of the hill Segor. cap. 35.

SEgor is a lyttle mount, & is called Balo also, and is nigh Sodoma, as Hie∣rome sayth. In that mount was a Citie builded, that was saued at ye prayers of Loth. There grow vines and balme, and apples of palmes, a token of the old plentie, and is vpon the dead Sea. And therein afterward was set succour of de∣fence of Romanes: thereof speaketh Esa. 15. Whereon the Glose sayth, that it was called an Heighfer: For is held fast liking of lechery, for it was twice smitten, and fell downe at the third time with earth shaking, and shuld haue stood strong, and abid, if they had not sinned after the deli∣uerance.
