2 Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into Gen. 17:8;Deut. 1:7;Ps. 78:55;Ezek. 47:14the land of Canaan; (this is the land that shall fall unto you for an inheritance, even the land of Canaan with the coasts thereof:)
3 Then Josh. 15:1;See Ezek. 47:13your south quarter shall be from the wilderness of Zin along by the coast of Edom, and your south border shall be the outmost coast of Gen. 14:3;Josh. 15:2the salt sea eastward:
4 And your border shall turn from the south Josh. 15:3to the ascent of Akrabbim, and pass on to Zin: and the going forth thereof shall be from the south ch. 13:26;& 32:8to Kadesh-barnea, and shall go on to See Josh. 15:3,4Hazar-addar, and pass on to Azmon:
5 And the border shall fetch a compass from Azmon Gen. 15:18;Josh. 15:4,47;1 Ki. 8:65;Is. 27:12unto the river of Egypt, and the goings out of it shall be at the sea.
6 And as for the western border, you shall even have the great sea for a border: this shall be your west border.
7 And this shall be your north border: from the great sea you shall point out for you ch. 33:37mount Hor:
8 From mount Hor ye shall point out your border ch. 13:21;2 Ki. 14:25unto the entrance of Hamath; and the goings forth of the border shall be to Ezek. 47:15Zedad:
9 And the border shall go on to Ziphron, and the goings out of it shall be at Ezek. 47:17Hazar-enan: this shall be your north border.
10 And ye shall point out your east border from Hazar-enan to Shepham:
11 And the coast shall go down from Shepham 2 Ki. 23:33;Jer. 39:5,6to Riblah, on the east side of Ain; and the border shall descend, and shall reach unto the [a]side of the sea Deut. 3:17;Josh. 11:2;& 19:35;Mat. 14:34;Luke 5:1of Chinnereth eastward:
12 And the border shall go down to Jordan, and the goings out of it shall be at ver. 3the salt sea: this shall be your land with the coasts thereof round about.
