( Hebrew har ha'abharim, hare ha'abharim ; Septuagint to oros to Abarim, en to peran tou Iordanou , mountain Abarim, mountains of Abarim).
A mountain range across Jordan, extending from Mount Nebo in the north, perhaps to the Arabian desert in the south. The Vulgate ( Deuteronomy 32:49 ) gives its etymological meaning as "passages." Its northern part was called Phasga, (or Pisgah) and the highest peak of Phasga was Mount Nebo ( Deuteronomy 3:27 ; 34:1 ; 32:49 ; Numbers 23:14 ; 27:12 ; 21:20 ; 32:47 ). Balaam blessed Israel the second time from the top of Mount Phasga ( Numbers 23:14 ); from here Moses saw the Land of Promise, and here Jeremias hid the ark ( 2 Maccabees 2:4-5 ).
