Egypt, River

EGYPT, RIVER (RV [Note: Revised Version.] ‘brook,’ better ‘wady’) OF . The S.W. boundary of Palestine ( Numbers 34:5 , Isaiah 27:12 etc.; cf. ‘river ( nahar ) of Egypt,’ Genesis 15:18 , and simply ‘the wady,’ Ezekiel 47:19; Ezekiel 48:28 ). It is the Wady el-Arish , still the boundary of Egypt, in the desert half-way between Pe usium and Gaza. Water is always to be found by digging in the bed of the wady, and after heavy rain the latter is filled with a rushing stream. El-Arish, where the wady reaches the Mediterranean, was an Egyptian frontier post to which malefactors were banished after having their noses cut off; hence its Greek name Rhinocorura . See also Shihor, Shur.
