when used with reference to Jordan, signifies in the writings of Moses the west side of the river, as he wrote on the east bank ( Genesis 50:10 Genesis 50:11 ; Deuteronomy 1:1 Deuteronomy 1:5 ; Deuteronomy 3:8 Deuteronomy 3:20 ; 4:46 ); but in the writings of Joshua, after he had crossed the river, it means the east side ( Joshua 5:1 ; 12:7 ; 22:7 ).
