    As I included Num32:8 – the band of Hebrews spied out the land from Kadesh – which had to be near the eastern border. And as the following additional passages state Kadesh was in the Wilderness of Zin which was on the eastern side from Jordan down the Dead Sea.

    Num 33:36

    And they set out from Ezion-geber and camped in the wilderness of Zin (that is, Kadesh).

    Jdg 11:17

    Israel then sent messengers to the king of Edom, saying, ‘Please let us pass through your land,’ but the king of Edom would not listen. And they sent also to the king of Moab, but he would not consent. So Israel remained at Kadesh.

    Num 34:3

    your south side shall be from the wilderness of Zin alongside Edom, and your southern border shall run from the end of the Salt Sea on the east.
