a boundary line indicated by a stone, stake, etc. ( Deuteronomy 19:14 ; 27:17 ; Proverbs 22:28 ; 23:10 ; Job 24:2 ). Landmarks could not be removed without incurring the severe displeasure of God.

land'-mark (gebhul, literally, "boundary"):

The boundary may have been marked, as at present, simply by a furrow or stone. The iniquity of removing a landmark is frequently insisted on (Deuteronomy 19:14; 27:17; Proverbs 22:28; 23:10; Job 24:2 gebhulah), its removal being equivalent to theft.
