Abarim: Regions beyond; i.e., on the east of Jordan, a mountain, or rather a
mountain-chain, over against Jericho, to the east and south-east of
the Dead Sea, in the land of Moab. From "the top of Pisgah", i.e.,
Mount Nebo (q.v.), one of its summits, Moses surveyed the Promised
Land (Deuteronomy 3:27; 32:49) and there he died (Deuteronomy 34:1,5) The Israelites had
one of their encampments in the mountains of Abarim
(Numbers 33:47,48)after crossing the Arnon.
