Abarim (ăb'a-rĭm or a-bä'rim), mountains beyond, or of the fords, a range of mountains east of the river Jordan, in the land of Moab, opposite Jericho. Numbers 27:12; Numbers 33:47; Deuteronomy 32:49. Nebo, Peor, and Pisgah belong to this range. In Jeremiah 22:20 the word is translated "passages" in the Authorized Version, but the Revised Version reads Abarim.

Ije-abarim in Numbers 21:11 means heaps or ruins of Abarim, and was near the same range.
