The borders of this tribe on the north were the same as those
of Ephraim on the south, and his southern boundaries the same
as the northern borders of Judah; but drawn from west to east,
instead of from east to west (ch. 15:1-12; ch. 16.) As the
inheritance of Benjamin did not extend to the Mediterranean
sea, and no other sea or lake is known to have been in those
parts, perhaps this depression, "compassed the corner of the
sea southward," (ver. 14,) should be rendered, "made a circuit
on the side next the sea towards the south;" for it seems to
connect the northern border, in the preceding verses, with the
southern which follows.
