3 your south side shall be from the wilderness of Zin along the side of Edom, and your southern boundary shall be from the end of the Salt Sea on the east; 3 " 'Your southern side will include some of the Desert of Zin along the border of Edom. On the east, your southern boundary will start from the end of the Salt Sea,
4 and your boundary shall turn south of the ascent of Akrab'bim, and cross to Zin, and its end shall be south of Ka'desh-bar'nea; then it shall go on to Ha'zar-ad'dar, and pass along to Azmon; 4 cross south of Scorpion Pass, continue on to Zin and go south of Kadesh Barnea. Then it will go to Hazar Addar and over to Azmon,
5 and the boundary shall turn from Azmon to the Brook of Egypt, and its termination shall be at the sea. 5 where it will turn, join the Wadi of Egypt and end at the Sea.
6 "For the western boundary, you shall have the Great Sea and its coast; this shall be your western boundary. 6 " 'Your western boundary will be the coast of the Great Sea. This will be your boundary on the west.
7 "This shall be your northern boundary: from the Great Sea you shall mark out your line to Mount Hor; 7 " 'For your northern boundary, run a line from the Great Sea to Mount Hor
8 from Mount Hor you shall mark it out to the entrance of Hamath, and the end of the boundary shall be at Zeded; 8 and from Mount Hor to Lebo Hamath. Then the boundary will go to Zedad,

11 and the boundary shall go down from Shepham to Riblah on the east side of A'in; and the boundary shall go down, and reach to the shoulder of the sea of Chin'nereth on the east; 11 The boundary will go down from Shepham to Riblah on the east side of Ain and continue along the slopes east of the Sea of Kinnereth.
12 and the boundary shall go down to the Jordan, and its end shall be at the Salt Sea. This shall be your land with its boundaries all round." 12 Then the boundary will go down along the Jordan and end at the Salt Sea. " 'This will be your land, with its boundaries on every side.' "
