Biblical Boundaries of the Land of Israel


This map features the biblical boundaries of the Land of Israel as described in Genesis 15:18 and Genesis 17:8.

  1. Dan is described in the Bible as the northernmost city of the Kingdom of Israel
  2. Be’er Sheva is described in the Bible as the southernmost city settled by the Israelites. Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov all spent time in Be’er Sheva (see map Journey of the Forefathers – Key Places).
  3. The Nile River is Egypt’s primary source of water. At the beginning of the Israelite’s slavery in Egypt, Pharaoh commanded that all baby boys be thrown into the Nile (Exodus 1:22), and baby Moshe was placed in the Nile (Exodus 2:3) and drawn from the Nile (Exodus 2:5) when he could no longer be hidden from the Egyptians.  The first two plagues the God brought upon the Egyptians also began in the Nile (Exodus 7:14-24, Exodus 7:26-8:11).
  4. The Euphrates River is the longest river of Western Asia, and is one of the two defining rivers of Mesopotamia. According to the Bible, the Euphrates was one of four rivers whose source was a river flowing from the Garden of Eden (Genesis 2:14).

There are two different phrases often used to describe the biblical boundaries of the Land of Israel:

  1. From Dan (1) to Be’er Sheva (2)
  2. From the Nile (3) to the Euphrates (4)

The expression from Dan to Be’er Sheva appears nine times in the Bible (Judges 20:1, I Samuel 3:20, II Samuel 3:10, II Samuel 17:11, II Samuel 24:2, II Samuel 24:15, I Kings 5:5, I Chronicles 21:2, II Chronicles 30:5), and is used to define the area of the Israelite settlement in the Land of Israel (highlighted in yellow on the map).  These borders reflect the promise that God made to Avraham in Genesis 17:8 “And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land of thy sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession.”  Though these are the basic borders of the Land of Israel, it is possible to expand beyond these borders as seen, for example, in Numbers 32.


The phrase “from the Nile to the Euphrates” includes a much bigger area than Dan to Be’er Sheva (highlighted in pink on the map).  This phrase has its source in the Covenant of the Parts in which God promises Avraham “’Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates” (Genesis 15:18).  These two rivers mark the limits of potential expansion of the original borders of the Land of Israel.  In addition, Rabbi Menachem Leibtag explains that the Nile and the Euphrates represent the two centers of ancient civilization, Egypt and Mesopotamia.  By saying that the land in between these two bodies of water is set aside for the Children of Israel, God is implying that it is Israel’s destiny to become a blessing to all mankind by declaring His name “at the crossroads of the two great centers of civilization.”

    The Lord of Israel indeed promised some land to Abraham, in the Genesis section.

    If you read the whole bible, you will notice that he told Moses to implement 10 commandments all across Israel.

    At the end of the bible, the Lord hath said that those who do not follow the 10 commandments are heretics, and will be put to death.

    So, those who make claims to the land offered by Lord should also note the other conditions the Lord hath imposed.

  • Magdy Michael

    What is shown is NOT the territory of Israel. God has promised the descendants of Abraham which includes his son Ishmael. Lets stop this corruption to God's words. God's covenant with Abraham has been fully fulfilled. As Abraham descendants are living already in these lands.
    Why did God do all what he did to get the people out of Egypt if from the Nile is the territory? God is not in the tricking business.

    This wrong propaganda is creating hate and not peace. Enough with the Zionist move that created unrest to the world. God is Love and Peace.
    Enough with the corruptions and Bullyish.

      Hashem's covenant was always through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Never through Ishmael. Hashem separated Isaac from Ishmael just as Hashem separated Jacob from Esau. The Covenant had specific land boundaries but also special tribal boundaries so to speak…Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. No matter of feelings or anything else, if we love the true Hashem, we will accept His decsions.

      • LaJauna C Johnson

        Absolutely the Covenant was always through Abraham Yitzhak, and Ya'akov. Even though YAHWEH blessed Ishmael in Bereshit 17:20 and make him a great nation The Scripture is specific about who YAHWEH's covenant was through. and as an additional note If you love YAHWEH you would stop referring to HIM as the name. Read Malachi 3:1-4 on how FATHER YAHWEH feel about honoring HIS NAME

          This map is true….
          Christians just don't get how this is a Spiritual battle.
          President Trump is Pro-Israel.
          We as "One Tree" have the same inheritance as Abraham, Isaac & Jacob-Israel were promised. The Land that the LORD
          ELOHIM gavee them, is ours also … We need to maintain our property. It is a vast larger area than the country called Israel.
          God only has one family.
          So when we accepted Yeshua/ Jesus as Lord and King and gave our life to him, we were adopted into God's royal family as Hebrew children. (Grafted in) And all the promises throughout the Bible are ours.

            Really? How about this, Scriptural Hebrews are the indigenous Copper Colored Peoples of the Americas, yeah, you can say it, they're Negro. Strong language offends? Contact the Creator, He happens to be of the same Ethnicity as His first Born Israel so don't expect favorable results.

          Jewish people cannot say YHWH since it is the holiest name of G-d, as written in the ancient Hebrew language. The written language showed no vowels, so the pronunciation is not agreed on. … Traditionally, religious Jews today do not often say this name aloud. This is because it is to be too holy to be spoken, especially incorrectly. It is forbidden to be uttered except by the High Priest, in the Temple. Since the Temple in Jerusalem no longer exists, this name is never said in religious rituals

      …except Ishmael was kicked out …remember ??? there were 2 different covenants one with Ishmael and a different one with the seed of Sarah …c'mon wake up !

    • Smc

      Sorry, the promise to Abraham for his son ISSAC most certainly DOES NOT include the inheirtance for his son Ishmael. The are the Arabic people and ARE NOT part of Israel!

    • Janice M Lee

      Ishmael does not count as he is ilegit, born of the flesh. Isaac is the promised son, born of the spirit. God refers to him as Abraham's only son. So, no Arabs in the promised land!!! The US is in trouble for dividing the land, Israel.

    • Vicki t cameron

      Ishmael was not included in the land given to the children of Abraham.

    • Yakub Ben Israel

      Ishmael is NOT counted for the seed and all that was promised to him was that he'd be a great nation with wealth and a wild spirit

    • Mark Wills

      No my friend, this includes just the Jewish nation and those who became Israelites. I think what you are forgetting is that the Jewish nation was suppose to Proselytize the world. To get Everyone alive to follow after the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. By the way that is who we are talking about, and you NEVER see Ishmael listed as a descendent in biblical terms.
      In fact he is listed more as a problem than a help. If he had humbled himself and asked to be a part – or if Isaac had converted him then they would be children of Abraham.
      Even today Christians need to be more about witnessing to the lost. I am safe, my sins will never be judged because Jesus took my wrath for me. Jesus was judged for my sins – now I am a child of the most high God, why wouldn't I tell everyone I se? Why don't I go and tell like I should? The same is true of Israel from the time of Moses until the time Jesus cam as a baby to this world!

    • God Is Love

      Yeshua/Jesus loves you, and I do too. You are in error my friend.
      Remember when Hagar, Sarai's handmaid, fled when she was with child.. and Elohim told her to return.
      El Roi (Hebrew: אל ראי‎) is one of the names of God in the Hebrew Bible. It is commonly translated as "the God who sees me" and is both a descriptive epithet for God using the word "El" (God) and a modifier indicating a quality of God.
      Wikipedia › wiki › El_Roi
      El Roi – Wikipedia

      That's what Hagar called Elohim.
      Elohim told Hagar to name hee son Ishmael, and what kind of nation would come from him. God did not promise land to him. The poor Muslims still call him Father Abraham. And they beg and plead with their God to not leave them. They never really knew Elohim. There was so much jealousy and hatred against Issac, the promised child that still exists today. They need only accept Yeshua/Jesus as Lord and KING and they would be grafted in and adopted as Hebrew children. God only has one family.

    • KcB

      You are incorrect. Ishmael was NOT the son of the covenant. He was the son of a slave girl. God made it clear that Ishmael was not going to be receiving the inheritance of the covenant.

    Gwen Bliss, you have such good things to say. Also, you clearly know the scriptures.

  • David Smith

    I have a question. We are studying the life of Abraham in Sunday School right now. I was reading the account of God's covenant with Abraham in Genesis 15. I am also researching maps concerning the land God promised to him in v. 18-21:

    18 On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying,
    “To your descendants I have given this land. From the river of Egypt as far as the great river, the river Euphrates:
    19 the Kenite and the Kenizzite and the Kadmonite
    20 and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Rephaim
    21 and the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Girgashite and the Jebusite.”

    New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update (La Habra, CA: The Lockman Foundation, 1995), Ge 15:18–21.

    Most maps I have seen use the Nile as the western border, interpreting the phrase "…the river of Egypt…" Some scholars, however, argue that this river is actually the Wadi El-arish, or " the brook of Egypt." I would appreciate your thoughts on this. Thank you.

    • William Cash

      My understanding of the passage is the southern border was the wadi of Egypt, western side is the Mediterranean Sea, northern border Euphrates River, and the eastern border was Arabian desert?

    • Magdy

      True and the promise was fulfilled. Sons of Abraham are Jacob and Ishmael. Of Jacob is where the Messiah to come from and its totally in line with God choice of the Hebrews to be the picked race. Why? In my limited understanding God has chosen the poor
      Of the poorest and people that have no power so his work will shine and bring glory to him. Again why? People as such are resilient and can satisfy God’s plan for the world.
      Israel where they are including Jerusalem is the God intending territory of the Jewish state that will shine truth to the world.
      At last we trust in God and his plans. Why would God drive the Hebrews out of Egypt and through the desert till they get to Canaan and show them the promise land. If the intention was from the nile to Euphrates river? Why the Jews stayed in the desert for 40 years till they got to the promise land? We need to look at the whole bible to understand. God Covenant is still is and will always be.

      • JC

        Ishmael was not part of the promise given land.

        • DR. JP Sloane

          Correct nor is Ismael a receiver of God's Covenant as Muslims believe although he will be blessed.
          "And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.

          And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.

          But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year." (Genesis 17:19-21)

    Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

    • Gwen Bliss

      The scriptures ALSO say in Romans 11 that the Jews are NOT replaced by Christians, but that Christians are "grafted in" and allowed to share in their blessing as God's priestly family. But just as the Jews were given the responsibility to TELL the REST OF THE WORLD that God wants to forgive us and still have a relationship with us, so WE Gentile believers are charged to do the same. When they did not share and instead turned the faith into an exclusive club of Pharisees and knowitalls, God disciplined them. He warns US Gentile believers also in Romans 11 that if we do the same, He will prune off our branch, same as He has pruned off branches of the Hebrews. The good news is,even when we blow it, He will "graft" us back in, just as He will continue to do as He awakens the hearts of the Jews in our day, and gathers them back home for the millenial kingdom. It was NEVER God's will ANY should perish, but that ALL would come to a saving grace. After we chose the enemy and our selves as our leader in the Garden of Eden, God chose the Jews to try and call us back and let us know that He still loves us. That was their assignment, that is why they were chosen, and that is the duty of anyone else who accepts that gift outside the Hebrew race. Someone had the guts to tell us. What if it was US who didn't know? Wouldn't we hope someone would tell US? We are all invited, Jew and Gentile; no one loses ANYTHING by the other being invited too do they?

      • Judy

        God never breaks covenant therefore the Jews can never be replaced. There is no such thing as replacement theology.

        • Jetsio Manuna

          Israels place as the 'symbolic Olive branches' of Paul's illustration was conditional upon their faith and obedience. Their big opportunity to manifest faith came when God presented his beloved son to them.
          Despite all the prophecies and even the Mosaic law pointing to his greatly needed sin atoning sacrifice. When he eventually presented himself to them they outright rejected him.
          As a Nation Israel rejected the king God had chosen for them, their cry was 'We have no king but Caesar!' John 19 ;15
          Christ became a stumbling stone for the fleshly descendants of Abraham. Romans 9:31-33
          The nation stumbled over him in unbelief. In spite of all the prophecies he fulfilled and in spite of all the wonders he performed before their eyes and the wisdom he spoke, they refused to exercise faith. They were deaf and blind, just as Jeremiah said: “Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; that have eyes, and see not; that have ears, and hear not.”—Jer. 5:21,

            Adding your own narrative among snippets of Bible verses is not good exegesis. Picking and choosing verses out of their original context.

            Matthew 23:37-39
            37“Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling. 38“Behold, your house is being left to you desolate! 39“For I say to you, from now on you will not see Me until you say, ‘BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD!’”

            Romans 11:25-26
            "For I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery—so that you will not be wise in your own estimation—that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. and so all Israel will be saved; just as it is written,

            Romans 1:16
            "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek."

            Romans 11:17-24
            But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, although a wild olive shoot, were grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing root[b] of the olive tree, 18 do not be arrogant toward the branches. If you are, remember it is not you who support the root, but the root that supports you. 19 Then you will say, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.” 20 That is true. They were broken off because of their unbelief, but you stand fast through faith. So do not become proud, but fear. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you. 22 Note then the kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God's kindness to you, provided you continue in his kindness. Otherwise you too will be cut off. 23 And even they, if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God has the power to graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and grafted, contrary to nature, into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, the natural branches, be grafted back into their own olive tree.

            Distinctions. Study the book of Revelation carefully, it reveals the end of the time of the gentiles and Yahweh turns again to His purposes for Israel. Can you not see that the surrounding nations hatred for the now small land of Israel is fulfilling prophecy, the nations will come against Israel to destroy and plunder, and in that time our King Mashiach Yeshua will return in judgement of the nations. And

    Truthfully, Genesis 15:18 shouldn't be looked at as the boundaries of Israel, but as the boundaries of Abraham's seed as scripture actually says. His seed would include not only Israel, but also the Ishmaelites Edomites, Amalekites, Kenizzites, Midianites, and even the Assyrians.

    Even if you want to discount the progeny from Ishmael, many of these other people groups came from Isaac, the child of promise. These people groups and nations have covered the boundaries mentioned in scripture, while Israel has not.

    The boundaries of Israel were given by God in Exodus 23:31, and match both the historic height of the nation during David and Solomon's time, and much of it now as well.

    "I will establish your borders from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea, and from the desert to the Euphrates River…"

      God said to him, "Your name is Jacob; You shall no longer be called Jacob, But Israel shall be your name." Thus He called him Israel. God also said to him, "I am God Almighty; Be fruitful and multiply; A nation and a company of nations shall come from you, And kings shall come forth from you. The land which I gave to Abraham and Isaac, I will give it to you, And I will give the land to your descendants after you." Gen 35:10-12

  • Dean Cozzens

    For a more mature and biblically correct analysis may I suggest reading JESUS AND THE LAND by Gary M. Burge, former Professor of New Testament at Wheaton, now at Calvin. And by the way, Paul in Galatians 3 & 4 clearly teaches that the Seed of Abraham was Jesus and then his followers.

    Lord Shiva, the God of Gods, the only true God, gave all his empire to me, which includes the whole of planet earth, but not limited to it, and blessed me as the King/Prince of his empire.

    The whole of Israel lies within my empire, as my God did not mention of any exclusions.

    The blessing of Jehova evaporated, along with Jehova. Why?

    Because the children of Israel placed Jehova their god as a pawn in gamble.

    Ask those fools about the truth, and you will understand why Israel and jehova are lost forever.

        There were no Jews in the world untill 2nd Kings. Loom it up . You and I can become a Jew by converting to Judaism. Judaism is a religion not a race.

        Read in John

        John 10:23-31 (KJV) And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.
        Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.
        Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.
        But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
        My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
        And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
        My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
        I and my Father are one.
        Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.

      Shiva is a pantheistic god. "god is the universe and the universe is god". The problem is that Einstein mathematically proved that the Universe had a beginning from a point of singularity. Therefore if there is a god he must be a causal agent outside of our time space continuum. Consequently Shiva can't be a real god. For if we are to accept pantheism it would be tantamount to saying I am my own father. Logically impossible. Einstein proved that the universe consists of time space and matter. Look at how his formula fits into Genesis 1." In the beginning (of time) God created the heavens (space) and the earth( matter)." God right from Genesis 1 establishes that he is God and there is no other. Then thousands of years later Einstein mathematically proved the veracity of this verse. This irritated Einstein to no end because he was not a particularly religious man yet he realized the implications of his formula. In the end he acknowledged some form of deism although he could not bring himself to embrace the Judeo-Christian God. Praise God for only He is worthy of our Praise.

      We need to understand that Hebrew means ccrossover. Its not about Judaism, but about Torah. Jews were one of the tribes of Israel of Judah, but people affiliate the name to Israelis. Anyhow when we come to Yeshua, because He is the only way to the Father, we become the commonwealth of Israel. We become grafted in. Abraham is our Patriarch, being the first to crossover. May we all come to the understanding of His Word to become a Holy people through Yeshua our Messiah!

      Shiva is an angry God who destroys his followers at the slightest provocation. Shiva is a destroyer and accuser. The Creator God loves, forgives and helps us to do better like a human father would, only more and perfectly. People who believe in Jehovah may not always get it right, even when we try to show that same love, or explain Him to other people, but Creator God NEVER messes up. He is just and has a code He wants us to follow of what He says is right and wrong because it hurts His heart to see His children bully and exclude eachother. But He also knows just like naughty 2 year olds, that we just don't know any better, and though He punishes, it is with the hope we will learn so we can be safe, and be kind to others in a world where we are naturally selfish and mean. I hope this helps Pilla. May God show you in your own soul what is true as He did me. I hope to meet you someday in heaven. I hope you make it too.

      I did not loose as the children of Israel predicted but prevailed. I was not surprised, for I believed my God.

      Since Jehova is the pawn in the gamble, now I own him. Since Bible says Jehova created earth, light etc, I automatically own all that Jehova created, in the past, present and future.

      This is exactly what Lord my God (Shiva) blessed me.

      You may wonder why the Lord of Israel enslaved himself?

      Ask the fools, about what they did, you will surely understand the whole story. The remaining is very well documented in old & new testaments.

        Satan decieved Eve in the Garden of Eden. The title deed to Earth went to Satan. He was the the ruler of this Earth and " the prince of the air". (Note: Jesus did not dispute Satan's claim when He was tempted after fasting for 40 days, when Satan offered Jesus the worldly kingdoms if Jesus would denounce God). Shiva is a wannbe god, part of the "principalities and powers" spoken of throughout the Bible. (Example, Romans 8:38-39). They are evil and seek the destruction of mankind in defiance of God. Jesus Christ took back the deed to Earth when He was crucified and was resurrected, overcoming death. In Revelation, Jesus will open the scroll of ownership, the scroll with 7 seals that begins God's wrath on this unbelieving world. Please understand Pilla…… have been deceived by a created being, Shiva. Satan and the entire fallen realm are created beings…created by God, God of Abram, Isaac, and Jacob. The Sovereign God. Satan, Shiva, Baal, the entire realm of evil are condemned and their fate is sealed to be imprisoned in Hell for eternity. Please ask God to show you the Truth. Eternal salvation comes oniy through Jesus Christ. I will pray for you. Shiva may have a little power but it is to deceive and ultimately to destroy you.

    The Nile river is in Egypt and is NOT the "River of Egypt" which defines one part of the promised land border. Otherwise the Israelites would have already been in the Promised Land before the Exodus. No, they crossed the Sea of Reeds, where the Suez Canal is today. No part of the Sinai Peninsula was promised to the Israelites; that remains part of Egypt.

    • Jon

      While they may have been in part of the promised land, they were not to be there yet.
      When Jesus the messiah returns to them they will get all the land promised, they have yet to reach the Great river Euphrates also.

        Does anything you say even make any logical sense? No of
        Course not you are ignorant and will believe anything you are told. Fact you don’t know how to think. You probably also think a star is going to fall to earth, even though it’s hundreds of times the size of earth, just like you explain “they were in part of the promised land, before entering the promised land”

          I'm curious about the square mileage of the Biblical borders of Israel

    The entire land of Israel including that of Palestine, belong to Israel?

      There is no such land as Palestine. The Romans renamed the land of Israel after their historical enemies, the Philistines, in an effort to erase Israel from history after the rebellion of AD 70. Before WWI, the land was under the Ottoman Empire, and was a sun-blasted wasteland, mostly uninhabited. When the British took control after WWI, they imported Arab workers from Jordan, Syria and Egypt to help develop infrastructure. Under the Balfour declaration, they also invited Jews from across the world, mainly to get rid of "The Jewish Problem" in Britain (The Brits are very nearly as anti-semitic as were the Germans). The displaced Arabs after the 1947 war that was supposed to extinguish Jewry from the Holy Land decided to rename themselves "Palestinians" in 1967 as a way to propagandize their movement. People literally went to bed one night as Egyptians, Syrians and Jordanians, and woke up as Palestinians. Ironically, there is no "P" sound in Arabic, which makes their claim pretty silly.

    God is clear in his further explanations to Abraham that the only recipients of the covenant would come through Isaac and then through Jacob. That is why Ishmael was sent away and why the Bible says, "Jacob have I loved and Esau have I hated." The Edomites (descendants of Esau) were not meant to be part of the promised land and were later conquered by David.
    I believe we will see the fulfillment of this covenant in the millennial kingdom when Christ returns. We will see Christ establish his throne over the entire world in Israel and David will sit on the throne of Israel in Jerusalem.

    • Fellow

      KING JESUS will sit in His throne, not David. This will fulfill the prophecy "they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years."

      David is currently in heaven worshiping God the Father. "And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth."

    • Sean Emerson

      Uh, read your Bible. Esau was the twin brother of Jacob, both were sons of Isaac. Esau married his cousin, the daughter of Ishmael.

  • Margaret

    How can anyone not know this if they read the Tanakh? Even if they aren’t Jewish!
    When I think about the refugees of Jordan living in Gaza, I think.. But wait! Jordan was a part of Israel 🤔 How come no one talks about that?
    And when people claim Abraham was born in Iran 🤔 Maybe his birth place wasn’t Persia way back then 🤔 Because G-d set the Jewish people apart from this world! Starting with Abraham who G-d set apart from His people! And where did G-d send Abraham? To Canaan… Canaan was a descendant of Israel..
    G-d has promised to give Israel back to His people! He asked His people to have patients! And boy has it been 2000 yrs since they lost their land! But G-d never lies!
    Can it happen in our life time? We can only have faith.. Only? Faith is the best thing to own.. Faith and wisdom!
    May G-d bless ALL Jewish people xx And May He keep them safe..

      Why do you leave the o out of the word God?

      • YHWH be blessed

        Hebrew is a language that has no vowels, this no "o". But also, vowels are left out as a sign of respect for the Lord.

    From the above I conclude that greater Israel has been promised to the children of Abraham. The children of Abraham are Isaac and Ishmael. The children of Israel are descendants of Isaac's son Jacob (later renamed Israel by G-d). The Arab world is commonly understood to be descendants of Ishmael.

    1) Does this mean that greater Israel is to be shared by the descendants of Abraham (Isaac & Ishmael)? If this is true, modern day Israel has been on the right track, always attempting to sit side by side with the Arabs (more specifically, Palestinians) from even before Israel's independence in 1948. However, Palestinians have been delinquent in their attempt at forming a nation alongside Israel, as history accounts.

    2) Who will be Israel's partner in keeping greater Israel at peace with stability, since Palestinians have not been able to cooperate peacefully with Israel and seam to have lost their chance at forming a nation with land and borders. Are Jordan, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia or Iraq going to cooperate in any way in forming a stable nation with land in greater Israel?

    3) How do you believe history will unfold?

    • Greg

      I believe it begins to unfold before us know….with the rise of Iran and the 'children of Ishmael' beginning to align with the children of Israel/Jacob…. it only begin….much remains to be done, more is unseen, all by faith.
      From the Covenants with Moses, Davis and the new (with Jeremiah (Jeremiah 31:31-34)….all in good time….with faith.

    • Ed Barnes

      i like a Bigger Israel for Israels safety—i am Not so sure the jihadis can be trusted to be peaceful so i think a bigger israel is Better

      • Ed Barnes

        i like a Bigger Israel for Israels safety—i am Not so sure the jihadis can be trusted to be peaceful so i think a bigger israel is Better— besides i think more jews will be coming to Israel in the future

        • Leamuel Lake

          The real Jews will be coming to Israel soon the almighty is going to bring them there : not man.

            God was in the pillar of cloud by day and pillar of fire by night, but He still used Moses as well. Is mysterious…But I think it all comes down to, God created us because He wanted a RELATIONSHIP with us. After creating everything and man, God invited Adam to name the creatures and rule over them, and take care of the Garden. Sortof neat to think about. He is a God Who is all powerful, but allowed us to be similar enough to Him to be able to interact with Him more than any other creature He made. He is not a control freak-though He is over all. He took a risk and let us choose if we believed Him or not per the tree of knowledge of good and evil…and we chose not to believe. The enemy tried to make us believe He was a control freak. Original fake news and selective reporting to turn us against our best friend. :(**

        'For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the FEWEST of all people: ' Deut 7:5-7

        Just as Israel is now, you can see the Hand of the Lord demonstrate His Power! Nothing, Nothing is difficult for the Lord!

        • Eric

          You forgot the lords plan was for Jesus Christ to come forth which he did. You seem to have missed him… and still follow Abraham.. foolish Christian

    • Leamuel Lake

      Mostly all of ishmael's descendants are Muslim they worship Allah they are either Sunni or Shiites even though they are descendants from Abraham they don't worship the god of Abraham Isaac and Jacob.
      They don't even believe that Yahshua is the son of the Almighty that makes them Antichrist

  • Russell

    See Deuteronomy 9: 1-6. God is Holy. Let us humble ourselves that we may hear His voice. Let us approach the Holy Word of God seeking to understand it accurately and not with a proud heart. His Word is alive and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the dividing of the soul and spirit, joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

    Jerusalem Jerusalem
    Do not be afraid, I'm the Lord your God
    I am not asleep, I watch over you
    City of God, apple of Mine eye.

    Jerusalem Jerusalem
    I want to be with you, the Day of God is near
    Fire from on high, all the nations cry their hearts are full of fear
    It's Me the Lord your God, I've come to dry your tears
    And lift you up on high, apple of Mine eye.
