Numbers 34:9

Numbers 34:9

And the border shall go on to Ziphron
Which in the Jerusalem Targum is called Zapherin; and Jerom F19 says, that in his time this city was called Zephyrium, a town in Cilicia; but this seems to be at too great a distance:

and the goings out of it shall be at Hazarenan;
which was the utmost of the northern border, and so it is in ( Ezekiel 47:17 ) and there called the border of Damascus: Reland F20 takes it to be the same with Enhazor, a city in the tribe of Naphtali, ( Joshua 19:37 ) , the words only inverted:

this shall be your northern border:
from the Mediterranean sea to Hazarenan in Naphtali.
