ABARIM (‘the parts beyond’). A term used to describe the whole east-Jordan land as viewed from Western Palestine. From there the land beyond Jordan rises as a great mountain chain to a height of 3000 feet and more from the Jordan valley. Hence Abarim is joined with ‘mount’ ( Numbers 27:12 , Deuteronomy 32:49 ) and ‘mountains’ ( Numbers 33:47 ); also with ‘Iyye , ‘heaps of’ ( Numbers 21:11 ). See also Jeremiah 22:20 and Ezekiel 39:11 (RV [Note: Revised Version.] ; AV [Note: Authorized Version.] ‘passages’).
