Bridgeway Bible Dictionary
Bordering the Jordan River on its eastern side was a region that in the south was commonly known as the Plains of Moab. Within this region was a mountainous area known as Abarim, which contained the prominent peak, Mt Nebo. Israel camped on the Plains of Moab while making final preparations to cross Jordan and conquer Canaan. From Mt Nebo Moses viewed the land on the other side of the river before he died (Numbers 33:47-48; Deuteronomy 32:49; Deuteronomy 34:1; Deuteronomy 34:7).
