The Mediterranean coast along the Plain of Sharon

Today I am sharing a photo of the Mediterranean Sea made from the kurkar ridge of the Plain of Sharon at Netanya, Israel.

Biblical Israel was given the Great Sea as the western border of the promised land.

For the western border, you shall have the Great Sea and its coast. This shall be your western border. (Numbers 34:6 ESV)

In other texts the Mediterranean is simply called the western sea (Deuteronomy 11:24).
