Stream of Egypt

Stream of Egypt [S]

( Isaiah 27:12 ), the Wady el-'Arish, called also "the river of Egypt," RSV, "brook of Egypt" ( Numbers 34:5 ; Joshua 15:4 ; 2 Kings 24:7 ). It is the natural boundary of Egypt. Occasionally in winter, when heavy rains have fallen among the mountains inland, it becomes a turbulent rushing torrent. The present boundary between Egypt and Palestine is about midway between el-'Arish and Gaza.
