The lake Asphaltites, Dead sea, or Salt sea, is, according to the most authentic accounts, about 70 miles in length, and 18 in breadth. Viewing this sea from the spot where the Jordan discharges its waters into it, it takes a south easterly direction. visible for ten or fifteen miles, when it disappears in a curve towards the east. Its surface is generally unruffled, from the hollow of the basin in which it lies scarcely admitting the free passage necessary for a strong breeze: it is, however, for the same reason, subject to The whirlwinds or squalls of short duration. mountains on each side are apparently sepa rated by a distance of eight miles; but the expanse of water at this point has been supposed not to exceed five or six: as it advances towards the south, it evidently increases in breadth. The acrid saltness of its waters is much greater than that of the sea; and of such specific gravity that bodies will float on it that would sink in common sea-water. It is probably on this account that few fish can live in it; though the monks of St. Saba affirmed to Dr. Shaw, that they had seen fish caught in it. Ge.14.3. Jos.3. 16.-15.2. Eze.47.8,18.

These two tribes inherited the dominions of Sihon and Og, the two vanquished kings of the Amorites, which extended from the Arnon to Mount Hermon. Of those countries, Moses gave to the tribe of Reuben the southwest part, which was bounded on the south by the river Arnon, on the west by Jordan, and on The the north and east by the tribe of Gad. tribe of Gad was bounded by the river Jordan and tribe of Reuben on the west, by the half tribe of Manasseh on the north, by the kingdom of the Amorites and Arabia Deserta on the east, and by the tribe of Reuben on the south. The part belonging to the tribe of Manassel was bounded by the tribe of Gad on the south, by the sea of Galilee and part of Jordan on the west, by Hermon and Lebanon on the north, and by the mountains of Trachouitis on the on this side Jordan. ch.32.32.


17 are the names. It is worthy of remark, that Moses does not follow any order hitherto used in arranging the tribes, but places them exactly in the order in which they possessed the land, and according to their fraternal relationship. Judah is first, having the first lot, in the South (Jos. XV.); and next him is Simeon, because his inheritance was within the inheritance of the children of Judah,' (Jos. 19.1.) Benjamin, the third, had his portion between Judah and the children of Joseph.' (Jos. 18. 11.) Dan was the fourth, and his lot was westward of Benjamin. (Jos.19.40,41.) Manasseh and his brother Ephraim had their inheritances behind that of Benjamin. (Jos. 16.7.) Next these dwelt Zebulun and Issachar, (Jos.19.10..17) and then

2 The Lord commanded. To one division of the tribe of Manasseh, a portion had been assigned eastward of Jordan, but Zeipher ad was of that division, to which an inheritance was afterwards allotted west of Jordan, yet, expecting the promised land, the elders of the Manassites now propose a difficulty, upon the adjudged case of Zelophehad's daughters, ch 27.1..11.) If the females should merit, in de fect of male issue, and should intermarry with other tribes, they would diminish the interest, and weaken the mfluence of their own tribes, and give occasion to future confusion, and peri aps coutention. The Manassites therefore referred the case to Moses; and be, by the authority of God, annexed a clause, which would effectuany keep the tribes and inheritances distinct, as long as it was observed. Heiresses were not allowed to marry out of their own tribe, though within those bounds they might consult their own in clinations. ch.26.55.56.-27.1.7.-33.54.
