Deuteronomy 3:17

Context
3:17 The Arabah and the Jordan River 1  were also a border, from the sea of Chinnereth 2  to the sea of the Arabah (that is, the Salt Sea), 3  beneath the watershed 4  of Pisgah 5  to the east.

1 tn The word “River” is not in the Hebrew text, but has been supplied in the translation for clarity (also in vv. 20, 25).

2 tn Heb “from Chinnereth.” The words “the sea of” have been supplied in the translation as a clarification.

sn Chinnereth. This is another name for the Sea of Galilee, so called because its shape is that of a harp (the Hebrew term for “harp” is כִּנּוֹר, kinnor).

3 sn The Salt Sea is another name for the Dead Sea (cf. Gen 14:3; Josh 3:16).

4 tn The meaning of the Hebrew term אַשְׁדֹּת (’ashdot) is unclear. It is usually translated either “slopes” (ASV, NAB, NIV) or “watershed” (NEB).

5 sn Pisgah. This appears to refer to a small range of mountains, the most prominent peak of which is Mount Nebo (Num 21:20; 23:14; Deut 3:27; cf. 34:1).
