And the border went out unto the side of Ekron northward
Which was one of the principalities of the Philistines; and which, though it fell to the lot of Judah, ( Joshua 15:45 ) , was not possessed by them:
and the border was drawn to Shicron, and passed along to Mount Baalah;
of which places we have no account elsewhere:
and went unto Jabneel;
which Masius makes no doubt was one of the Jamnias, and particularly that which was a seaport; which Strabo says
F1 was distant from Azotus and Ashkelon about two hundred furlongs, or twenty five miles:
and the goings out of the border were at the sea;
the Mediterranean sea; here the northern border ended.
