A´bel-Shit´tim (Place of acacias), a town in the plains of Moab, on the east of the Jordan, between which and Beth-Jesimoth was the last encampment of the Israelites on that side the river (Numbers 33:49). It is more frequently called Shittim merely (Numbers 25:1; Joshua 2:1; Micah 6:5). The place is noted for the punishment which was there inflicted upon the Israelites for their worship of Baal-Peor.
