Geographic Border Locations:


    The name means "fissure".  The name occurs in just one verse where it is located on the south east corner of Canaan.  This is significant to the borders of The Promised Land, which included Canaan.  It's location is unknown, other than it's connection with Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim.  In some older Jewish and Christian  writings it is associated with Callirhoe/Kallirrhoe, a place famous for it's hot springs.  This association is inaccurate since Callirhoe is too far north and is on the east side of the Dead Sea in an area that was not part of The Promised Land.  

Gn 10:19
The border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as you go toward Gerar, to Gaza; as you go toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, to Lasha.
