God set the boundaries for Israel's territory.


As Israel was preparing to enter the land of Canaan, GOD told Moses:

2 “Command the children of Israel and say to them, ‘You shall come into the land of Canaan, and it shall be your inheritance, the land of Canaan with its borders.

3 ‘Your southern border shall be from the Desert of Sin to the border of Edom; so your southern border shall extend eastward to the end of the Salt Sea; 4 and your borders shall go around from the southern side of the Ascent of Akrabbim, continue to Sin, and be on the south of Kadesh Barnea; then it shall go on to Hazar Addar, and continue to Azmon; 5 and the border shall go around from Azmon to the Brook of Egypt, and its termination shall be the sea.

6 ‘As for the western borders, you shall have the Great Sea for a border; this shall be your western border.

7 ‘Now this shall be your northern border: from the Great Sea you shall measure your border along the mountain range; 8 and from the mountain range you shall measure your border to Hamath; and its termination shall be the borders of Zedad; 9 and the border shall proceed to Ziphron, and its termination shall be Hazar Enan. This shall be your northern border.

10 ‘You shall measure your eastern borders from Hazar Enan to Shepham; 11 and the borders shall go down from Shepham to Riblah on the east side of Ain; and the borders shall go down to Bela behind the Sea of Chinnereth from the east; 12 and the borders shall go down along the Jordan, and its termination shall be the Salt Sea. This shall be your land with its surrounding borders.’”
(Numbers 34:2-12 OSB)
