O Lord, restore our well-being, just as the streams in the arid south are replenished. 1
At an appointed time he will again invade the south, but this latter visit will not turn out the way the former one did.
The king of Arad, the Canaanite king who lived in the south of the land of Canaan, heard about the approach of the Israelites.

When Moses sent 1 them to investigate the land of Canaan, he told them, “Go up through the Negev, 2 and then go up into the hill country
When they went up through the Negev, they 1 came 2 to Hebron where Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai, 3 descendants of Anak, were living. (Now Hebron had been built seven years before Zoan 4 in Egypt.)
