    Definitions for Ezekiel 47:18

    Sea - Large basin.

    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 47:18

    The east sea - The same as the Dead Sea.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 47:18

    The eastern boundary is to commence by separating off the territory of Damascus and Hauran, and then to follow the line of the Jordan to the Dead Sea. Further, the land occupied by the trans-Jordanic tribes was also to be separated off from the land of Israel. The trans-Jordanic tribes in fact occupied their ground (in Joshua's allotment) by sufferance. This did not belong to Canaan proper, the land of promise. Hence, the tribes, formerly on the east of the Jordan, have here allotments in Canaan, though "the oblation" Ezekiel 45:1 extends to a considerable distance beyond the Jordan (see Plan, Ezekiel 48). The whole arrangement being ideal and symbolic, the vision here, as in the case of "the waters" (Ezekiel 47:1 note), departs from the physical features of the land for the purpose of maintaining symbolic numbers.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 47:18

    47:18 The east sea - The Dead - sea, which lay on the east of Jerusalem. Thus a line drawn from Damascus through Auranitis, Gilead, the land of Israel beyond Jordan to the east - sea, made the eastern frontier.
