Palestina, Palestine

Additional Links

The Hebrew word, Pelesheth, occurs but four times, and did not allude to the whole of the land of Canaan, as the name Palestine is now applied; but was restricted to part of the coast of the Mediterranean, occupied by the Philistines. In Exodus 15:14,15 , Palestina, Edom, and Moab are mentioned, and then 'all the inhabitants of Canaan.' In Joel 3:4 , Tyre and Sidon are not included in the term. In these passages, and in Isaiah 14:29,31 , it is usual now to translate the word PHILISTIA (as in the R.V.), the Hebrew being the same as in Psalm 60:8; Psalm 87:4; Psalm 108:9 . See CANAAN and SYRIA.
