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
), and there he died (34:1,5). The Israelites had one of their encampments in the mountains of Abarim (Numbers 33:47,48
) after crossing the Arnon.
