American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Abarim
Mountains east of the Dead Sea and the lower Jordan, "over against Jericho," within the territory of Moab and the tribe of Reuben. It is impossible to define exactly their extent. The mountains Nebe, Pisgah, and Peor were in the Abarim, Numbers 27:12 ; 33:47,48 ; Deuteronomy 32:49 ; 34:1 . Ije-abarim, Numbers 21:11 , seems to denote the southern part of the same chain.

Holman Bible Dictionary - Iye-Abarim
(i ihee-ab' uh rihm) Place name meaning, “ruins of the crossings.” Station in the wilderness wanderings (Numbers 21:11 ) near Moab. It is apparently near mount Abarim. See Abarim . It is apparently abbreviated as Iim in Numbers 33:45 (KJV). Some Bible geographers locate it at khirbet Aii southwest of Kerak or modern Mahay, but this is far from certain.

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Abarim
Connected with Nebo and Pisgah in Deuteronomy 32:49; Deuteronomy 34:1. Abarim was probably the mountain chain, Nebo one mountain of it, and Pisgah the highest peak of Nebo. Peor also belonged to the range. The chain east of the Dead Sea and lower Jordan commands most extensive views of the country west of the river. It was from Pisgah that Moses took his view of the promised land just before he died.

Some identify mount Attarous, the loftiest hill in this region, ten miles north of the river Arnon, with Nebo. Its top is marked by a pistachio tree overshadowing a heap of stones. The Hebrew means "the mountains of the regions beyond," namely, the Jordan, or else "the mountains of the passages." They were in the land of Moab, opposite Jericho. Compare Numbers 27:12; Numbers 33:47-48; Deuteronomy 3:27. Dr. Tristram verified the observation of the landscape from Nebo, as seen by Moses according to the Scripture record. There is one isolated cone commanding a view of the valley where Israel's battle was fought with Amalek, which may be the Pisgah of holy writ.

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Abarim
ABARIM (‘the parts beyond’). A term used to describe the whole east-Jordan land as viewed from Western Palestine. From there the land beyond Jordan rises as a great mountain chain to a height of 3000 feet and more from the Jordan valley. Hence Abarim is joined with ‘mount’ ( Numbers 27:12 , Deuteronomy 32:49 ) and ‘mountains’ ( Numbers 33:47 ); also with ‘Iyye , ‘heaps of’ ( Numbers 21:11 ). See also Jeremiah 22:20 and Ezekiel 39:11 (RV [Note: Revised Version.] ; AV [Note: Authorized Version.] ‘passages’).
