Mount Nebo

A mountain of the Abarim range, east of the Jordan and the Dead Sea, from which Moses surveyed the Promised Land (Deuteronomy 32), and where he died (Deuteronomy 34). The location of Mount Nebo is doubtful, but it is identified by some with the modern Jebel Neba, a ridge on a plateau southwest of Hesebon.
