1. Contracted from Ije Abarim, a late stage of Israel's wilderness journey (Numbers 33:45; Numbers 21:11), = "ruinous heaps". On the S.E. border of Moab, in the midbar or "wilderness," unenclosed uncultivated land, verdant in spring, but parched and dreary in summer. The "Abarim" distinguishes it from.
        2. Another Iim in S.W. Canaan (Joshua 15:29). Abarim, ("farther regions or coast regions"), namely, the hills facing Jericho, the whole upland E. of Jordan, the Greek "Peraea." Between Ije Abarim and Dibon Gad were the rivers Zared and Arnon. Compare Deuteronomy 2:9-12; Deuteronomy 2:13, "rise up," implies the Israelites remained at Iim some time; they were forbidden to assail Moab.
