The LORD said to Moses,
"Command the people of Israel, and say to them, When you enter the land of Canaan (this is the land that shall fall to you for an inheritance, the land of Canaan in its full extent),
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;
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;
and the boundary shall turn from Azmon to the Brook of Egypt, and its termination shall be at the sea.
"For the western boundary, you shall have the Great Sea and its coast; this shall be your western boundary.
"This shall be your northern boundary: from the Great Sea you shall mark out your line to Mount Hor;
from Mount Hor you shall mark it out to the entrance of Hamath, and the end of the boundary shall be at Zeded;
