Exodus 23:31

Context
23:31 I will set 1  your boundaries from the Red Sea to the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert to the River, 2  for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you will drive them out before you.

1 tn The form is a perfect tense with vav consecutive.

2 tn In the Hebrew Bible “the River” usually refers to the Euphrates (cf. NASB, NCV, NRSV, TEV, CEV, NLT). There is some thought that it refers to a river Nahr el Kebir between Lebanon and Syria. See further W. C. Kaiser, Jr., “Exodus,” EBC 2:447; and G. W. Buchanan, The Consequences of the Covenant (NovTSup), 91-100.
