[From thence] it passed towards Azmon, and went out unto the
river of Egypt
In like manner is this coast described, ( Numbers 34:5 ) ; it is called by Jerom F24 Asemona, and said to be a city in the desert, to the south of Judah, dividing Egypt, and the lot of the tribe of Judah, leading to the sea:
and the outgoings of that coast were at the sea;
the Mediterranean sea; or to the west, as the Targum; this was the utmost border of the tribe of Judah this way:
this shall be your south coast;
of the lot that fell to the tribe of Judah.
