Definitions for abarim
This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word abarim
Abarim is a mountain range across Jordan, to the east and south-east of the Dead Sea, extending from Mount Nebo — its highest point — in the north, perhaps to the Arabian desert in the south. The Vulgate gives its etymological meaning as passages. Its northern part was called Phasga, and the highest peak of Phasga was Mount Nebo. From "the top of Pisgah," i.e., Mount Nebo, an area which belonged to Moab, Moses surveyed the Promised Land, and there he died. Balaam blessed Israel the second time from the top of Mount Phasga; and here Jeremias hid the ark. The Israelites had one of their encampments in the mountains of Abarim after crossing the Arnon. Jeremiah couples it with Bashan and Lebanon as locations from which the people cry in vain to God for rescue.
The Nuttall Encyclopedia
a mountain chain in Palestine, NE. of the Dead Sea, the highest point being Mount Nebo.
