“Go up to Lebanon, and cry out;
and lift up your voice in Bashan,
and cry out from Abarim,
for all your lovers are destroyed. Bible other translations

“Abarim.” A mountain range in Moab. Lebanon, Bashan (Syria), and Moab were places that Jehoiakim apparently expected to get help from his “lovers,” i.e., those people who he courted and who apparently indicated they would help him fight Babylon, but who turned against him (2 Kings 24:2).
