Treasury of Scripture
Then your south quarter shall be from the wilderness of Zin along by the coast of Edom, and your south border shall be the outmost coast of the salt sea eastward:
Exodus 23:31 And I will set your bounds from the Red sea even to the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert to the river...
Joshua 15:1-12 This then was the lot of the tribe of the children of Judah by their families...
Ezekiel 47:13,19 Thus said the Lord GOD; This shall be the border, whereby you shall inherit the land according to the twelve tribes of Israel...
salt sea eastward. The lake Asphaltites, Dead Sea, or Salt Sea, is, according to the most authentic accounts, about
70 miles in length, and
18 in breadth. Viewing this sea from the spot where the Jordan discharges its waters into it, it takes a south-easterly direction, visible for ten or fifteen miles, when it disappears in a curve towards the east. Its surface is generally unruffled, from the hollow of the basin in which it lies scarcely admitting the free passage necessary for a strong breeze; it is however, for the same reason, subject to whirlwinds or squalls of short duration. The mountains on each side are apparently separated by a distance of eight miles; but the expanse of water at this point has been supposed not to exceed five or six; as it advances towards the south, it evidently increases in breadth. The acrid saltness of its waters is much greater than that of the sea; and of such specific gravity that bodies will float on it that would sink in common sea-water. It is probably on this account that few fish can live in it; though the monks of St. Saba affirmed to Dr. Shaw, that they had seen fish caught in it.
Genesis 14:3 All these were joined together in the vale of Siddim, which is the salt sea.
Joshua 3:16 That the waters which came down from above stood and rose up on an heap very far from the city Adam, that is beside Zaretan...
