Numbers 33:47-48; Deuteronomy 32:49-50; Numbers 27:12-13; Deuteronomy 3:27; Jeremiah 22:20
Probably the chain of mountains that lie beyond or to the east of the Dead Sea and the lower Jordan (Num. 33:47-4847And they removed from Almon-diblathaim, and pitched in the mountains of Abarim, before Nebo. 48And they departed from the mountains of Abarim, and pitched in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho. (Numbers 33:47‑48)). Deuteronomy 32:49-5049Get thee up into this mountain Abarim, unto mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, that is over against Jericho; and behold the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel for a possession: 50And die in the mount whither thou goest up, and be gathered unto thy people; as Aaron thy brother died in mount Hor, and was gathered unto his people: (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 (Num. 27:12-1312And the Lord said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel. 13And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered. (Numbers 27:12‑13)). Deuteronomy 3:2727Get thee up into the top of Pisgah, and lift up thine eyes westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and behold it with thine eyes: for thou shalt not go over this Jordan. (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” (Jer. 22:2020Go up to Lebanon, and cry; and lift up thy voice in Bashan, and cry from the passages: for all thy lovers are destroyed. (Jeremiah 22:20)).
