Akrab´bim (Scorpion-height), an ascent, hill, or chain of hills, which, from the name, would appear to have been much infested by scorpions and serpents, as some districts in that quarter certainly were (Deuteronomy 8:15). It was one of the points which are only mentioned in describing the frontier-line of the Promised Land southward (Judges 1:36), and has been conjectured to be the same with the mountains of Akabah, which bound the great valley of Arabah on the east.
