Ij'e-ab'arim (Hebrew lyeh' ha-Abarim', הָעֲבָרַים עַיֵּי , ruins of the Abarim., or regions beyond; Sept. Α᾿χαγαί, but in Nu 33:44 simply read; Vulg. Jeabarin and Ijeabarim), the forty-seventh station of the Israelites on approaching Canaan, described as being between Oboth and Dibon-gad, "in the border of Moab" (Nu 33:44), or between Oboth and the brook Zered, "in the wilderness which is before (i.e. east of) Moab, towards the sun-rising" (Nu 21:11), and therefore not far from Aineh, a little south of wady el-Ahry, which forms the southern boundary of the Moabitish territory, and lies near the southern end of the range of Abarim, that give this compound form to the name (simply IIM in Nu 33:44), to distinguish it from the lim of Judah (Jos 15:29). SEE ABARIM.
