(הִר הָאֵֹמרַי; Sept. ὄρος τοῦ Ἀμοῤῥαίου ; Vulg. Mons Amorrhcei), specifically mentioned, Deuteronomy 1:19-20 (comp. 44), in reference to the wandering of the Israelites in the desert. It seems to be the range which rises abruptly from the plateau of et-Tih, running from a little S. of W. to the N. of E., and of which the extremities are the Jebel Araif en- Nakah westward, and Jebel el-Mukrah eastward, and from which line the country continues mountainous all the way to Hebron. (See AMORITE). The particular spot where the Israelites encountered it seems to have been at the present Nukb es-Sufeh. (See EXODE).
