34 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Command the people of Israel, and say to them, When you enter athe land of Canaan b(this is the land that shall fall to you for an inheritance, the land of Canaan as defined by its borders), cyour south side shall be from the wilderness of Zin alongside Edom, and your southern border shall run from the end of dthe Salt Sea on the east. And your border shall turn south of ethe ascent of Akrabbim, and cross to Zin, and its limit shall be south of Kadesh-barnea. Then it shall go on to eHazar-addar, and pass along to Azmon. And the border shall turn ffrom Azmon to gthe Brook of Egypt, and its limit shall be at the sea.

“For the western border, you shall have the Great Sea and its1 coast. This shall be your western border.

“This shall be your northern border: from the Great Sea you shall draw a line to hMount Hor. From Mount Hor you shall draw a line ito Lebo-hamath, and the limit of the border shall be at jZedad. Then the border shall extend to Ziphron, and its limit shall be at kHazar-enan. This shall be your northern border.

10 “You shall draw a line for your eastern border from Hazar-enan to Shepham. 11 And the border shall go down from Shepham to lRiblah on the east side of Ain. And the border shall go down and reach to the shoulder of mthe Sea of Chinnereth on the east. 12 And the border shall go down to the Jordan, and its limit shall be at nthe Salt Sea. This shall be your land as defined by its borders all around.”
