River of Egypt

"(1.) Heb. nahar mitsraim, denotes in Gen. 15:18 the Nile, or its" "eastern branch (2 Chr. 9:26). (2.) In Num. 34:5 (R.V., "brook of" "Egypt") the Hebrew word is nahal, denoting a stream flowing" "rapidly in winter, or in the rainy season. This is a desert" stream on the borders of Egypt. It is now called the Wady el-`Arish. The present boundary between Egypt and Palestine is about midway between this wady and Gaza. (See Num. 34:5; Josh. "15:4, 47; 1 Kings 8:65; 2 Kings 24:7; Isa. 27:12; Ezek. 47:19." "In all these passages the R.V. has "brook" and the A.V." river.)
