31 And I will fix your boundaries from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea,[fn] and from the eastern wilderness to the Euphrates River.[fn] I will hand over to you the people now living in the land, and you will drive them out ahead of you.
2 “Give these instructions to the Israelites: When you come into the land of Canaan, which I am giving you as your special possession, these will be the boundaries.
12 and then along the Jordan River to the Dead Sea. These are the boundaries of your land.”
8 When the Most High assigned lands to the nations, when he divided up the human race, he established the boundaries of the peoples according to the number in his heavenly court.
12 The western boundary was the shoreline of the Mediterranean Sea. These are the boundaries for the clans of the tribe of Judah.
20 The eastern boundary was the Jordan River. These were the boundaries of the homeland allocated to the clans of the tribe of Benjamin.

8 “Who kept the sea inside its boundaries as it burst from the womb,
7 He assigned the sea its boundaries and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs.
17 You set the boundaries of the earth, and you made both summer and winter.
29 I was there when he set the limits of the seas, so they would not spread beyond their boundaries. And when he marked off the earth's foundations,
22 Have you no respect for me? Why don't you tremble in my presence? I, the LORD, define the ocean's sandy shoreline
as an everlasting boundary that the waters cannot cross. The waves may toss and roar, but they can never pass the boundaries I set.
27 That is why I struck you with my fist and reduced your boundaries. I handed you over to your enemies, the Philistines, and even they were shocked by your lewd conduct.
4 You extended your boundaries into the sea. Your builders made your beauty perfect.
7 “Two special sections of land will be set apart for the prince. One section will share a border with the east side of the sacred lands and city, and the second section will share a border on the west side.

21 “Divide the land within these boundaries among the tribes of Israel.
7 and then Judah, all of whose boundaries extend from east to west.
25 Next is the territory of Issachar with the same eastern and western boundaries.
5 Others will set your boundaries then, and the LORD's people will have no say in how the land is divided.
26 From one man he created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and he determined their boundaries.
2 Corinthians 10:
13 We will not boast about things done outside our area of authority. We will boast only about what has happened within the boundaries of the work God has given us, which includes our working with you.
14 We are not reaching beyond these boundaries when we claim authority over you, as if we had never visited you. For we were the first to travel all the way to Corinth with the Good News of Christ.
15 Nor do we boast and claim credit for the work someone else has done. Instead, we hope that your faith will grow so that the boundaries of our work among you will be extended.
