Probably the chain of mountains that lie 'beyond' or to the east of the Dead Sea and the lower Jordan. Numbers 33:47,48 . Deuteronomy 32:49,50 , shows that mount Nebo was connected with Abarim and that it was 'over against Jericho' and also that it was where Moses viewed the land and died. Numbers 27:12,13 . Deuteronomy 3:27 connects this with Pisgah; so that Pisgah and Nebo apparently formed part of Abarim, in the land of Moab. Abarim is translated 'passages' in Jeremiah 22:20 .
