Scorpions, A point in the frontier line of the promised land, Jude 1:36, and in a region infested with serpents and scorpions, De 8:15. It is to be found probably in the mountains near the Dead Sea, on its southwest side. In Joshua 15:3, it is translated Maalehakrabbim, the ascent of Akrabbim.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Scorpions, probably the general name given to the ridge containing the pass between the south of the Dead Sea and Zin, es-Sufah, by which there is an ascent to the level of the land of Palestine. Scorpions are said to abound in this whole district, and hence the name (Numbers 34:4). It is called "Maaleh-acrabbim" in Joshua 15:3, and "the ascent of Akrabbim" in Numbers 34:4.
