—Biblical Data:

A term applied to the edge of the Moabite plateau. From its most prominent headland, Mount Nebo, the western part of Judea was plainly visible (Jeremiah 22:20; Numbers 27:12, 23:47; Deuteronomy 32:49, and see Ezekiel 49:11, revised text, "S. B. O. T.").

—In Rabbinical Literature:

The Midrash remarks that this mountain has four names: Abarim, Hor, Nebo, and the Heights of Pisgah. This is accounted for by the fact that the mountain was situated on the frontiers of four adjoining kingdoms. Since all were proud to have a share in Palestine, each regarded the mountain as belonging to itself and gave it a suitable name (Sifre, Deut. xxxvii; 76b, ed. Friedmann).
