Gad’s southern border is also the southern border of Israel. It will begin at the town of Tamar, then run southwest to the springs near Meribath-Kadesh. It will continue along the Egyptian Gorge and end at the Mediterranean Sea.
“The southern border of Gad’s land will go ·east from Tamar on the Dead Sea [L from Tamar; 47:18] to the waters of Meribah Kadesh [47:19]. Then it will run along the brook of Egypt to the ·Mediterranean [L Great] Sea.
Adjacent to the border of Gad to the south and extending toward the south, the border is to proceed from Tamar to the waters of Meribath-kadesh, then to the Wadi of Egypt, and from there to the Mediterranean Sea.
And by the border of Gad, at the south side southward, the border shall be even from Tamar unto the waters of Merivat-Kadesh, to the wadi [of Egypt] the the Yam HaGadol (the Great Sea, i.e., Mediterranean Sea).
And on the term, (or the end,) of Gad, to the coast of the south into midday, [or south(ward)]; and the end shall be from Tamar till to the waters of against-saying of Kadesh, and the heritage against the great sea. (And from the border of Gad, on the south side toward the Negeb, the border shall be from Tamar unto the waters of strife at Kadesh/unto the waters of Meribah-by-Kadesh, and through the inheritance unto the Great Sea, that is, the Mediterranean Sea.)
