Rashi and Rashbam: To include the islands in the Mediterranean Sea 1 in the borders of Eretz Yisrael.


Targum Yonasan: 'This includes the waters of Bereishis 2 and the original water ... , the craters, the lands, the cities, the islands, the districts and the ships that are in it'. 3


Within a line that stretches from Hor ha'Har in the north to Nachal Mitzrayim in the south (See also Na'ar Yonasan)
