    Definitions for Joshua 12:3

    Sea - Large basin.

    Clarke's Commentary on Joshua 12:3

    The sea of Chinneroth - Or Gennesareth, the same as the lake or sea of Tiberias.

    The Salt Sea on the east - ים המלח yam hammelach, which is here translated the Salt Sea, is understood by others to mean the sea of the city Melach. Where can we find any thing that can be called a salt sea on the east of the lake of Gennesareth? Some think that the lake Asphaltites, called also the Dead Sea, Sea of the Desert, Sea of Sodom, and Salt Sea, is here intended.

    Beth-jeshimoth - A city near the Dead Sea in the plains of Moab.

    Ashdoth-pisgah - Supposed to be a city at the foot of Mount Pisgah.

    Barnes' Notes on Joshua 12:3

    From the plain - Render "over the plain;" for the words describe not one of the boundaries of Sihon's kingdom, but part of the territory included in it, i. e. the eastern portion of the Ghor, between the Sea of Tiberias and the Dead Sea.
