Passage: Denotes in
(Joshua 22:11) as is generally understood, the place where the
children of Israel passed over Jordan. The words "the passage of"
are, however, more correctly rendered "by the side of," or "at the
other side of," thus designating the position of the great altar
erected by the eastern tribes on their return home. This word also
designates the fords of the Jordan to the south of the Sea of Galilee
(Judges 12:5,6) and a pass or rocky defile
(1 Samuel 13:23; 14:4) "Passages"
(Jeremiah 22:20) is in the Revised Version more correctly "Abarim"
(q.v.), a proper name.
