Transcript THE DEAD SEA. however, situated to the south of it, appears to be proved by the fact that Abraham, from the neighbourhood of Hebron, beheld " the smoke of the country going up as the smoke of a furnace," which otherwise would have been impossible. Lot, also, had they been situated elsewhere, could not have reached Zoar, which stood on the south-eastern shore, in the short interval between dawn and sunrise. The Dead Sea is several times mentioned as one of the landmarks in determining the borders of the tribes. Thus the south border of the lot of the children of Judah is described as running " from the shore of the Salt Sea, from the bay that looketh southward" (Joshua xv. 2); and " the sea of the plain, even the Salt Sea," is spoken of as one of the boundaries of the tribes of Reuben and Gad (Deut. iii. 17).
