SEV Biblia, Chapter 34:3 tendréis el lado del mediodía desde el desierto de Zin hasta los términos de Edom; y os será el término del mediodía al extremo del Mar Salado hacia el oriente.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Numbers 34:3 Verse 3. The salt sea] The Dead Sea, or lake Asphaltites. See the note on "Gen. xix. 25".
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 3. Then your south quarter , etc.] Or border of the land; which, as Jarchi observes, was from east to west: shall be from the wilderness of Zin ; which is Kadesh, where Miriam died, ( Numbers 20:1 33:36), and if this Kadesh was Kadeshbarnea, as Dr.
Lightfoot seems to have proved f484 , from whence the spies were sent, that was clearly on the south of the land of Canaan, for they were bid to go up their way southward, ( Numbers 13:17), and so Kadeshbarnea is hereafter mentioned, as being in the southern border: the Targum of Jonathan paraphrases it, “from the wilderness of the palm trees of the mountain of iron;” there is a smaller palm tree, which by Jewish writers is called Zin, of which there were great quantities on a mountain famous for iron mines, in this wilderness, from whence it is thought it had its name; hence we read of palm trees of the mountain of iron, as fit to make the bunch of branches of trees, called the “lulab”, carried in the hand on the feast of tabernacles: along by the coast of Edom ; the land of Canaan, to the south, bordered on three countries, Egypt, Edom, and Moab; according to Jarchi, some part of Egypt, the whole land of Edom, and the whole land of Moab; the part of the land of Egypt was in the south west corner of it; the land of Edom by it to the east; and the land of Moab by the land of Edom, at the end of the south to the east: and your south border shall be the outmost coast of the salt sea eastward ; the same that is sometimes called the Dead sea, the sea of Sodom, or the lake Asphaltites, as Heathen writers generally call it.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-15 - Canaan was of small extent; as it is here bounded, it is but about 16 miles in length, and about 50 in breadth; yet this was the countr promised to the father of the faithful, and the possession of the see of Israel. This was that little spot of ground, in which alone, for many ages, God was known. This was the vineyard of the Lord, the garde enclosed; but as it is with gardens and vineyards, the narrowness of the space was made up by the fruitfulness of the soil. Though the eart is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof, yet few know him, and serv him; but those few are happy, because fruitful to God. Also, see ho little a share of the world God gives to his own people. Those who have their portion in heaven, have reason to be content with a smal pittance of this earth. Yet a little that a righteous man has, havin it from the love of God, and with his blessing, is far better and mor comfortable than the riches of many wicked. (Nu 34:16-29)
