Abel-mizraim (the "meadow of Egypt", or "mourning of Egypt")[1] is a place "beyond," or west, of the Jordan river, at the "threshing-floor of Atad." Here the Egyptians mourned seven days for Jacob (Genesis 50:4-11). Its site is unknown.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Meadow of Egypt, would come from Abel (Meadow) and Mizraim (Egypt). "Mourning of Egypt" would come from Ebel (Mourning).
