34:11 The boundary shall then run southward from Shefam to Rivlah to the east of Eyin. Continuing to the south, the boundary shall run along the eastern shore of the Kinnereth Sea.

34:12 The boundary shall then continue south along the Jordan, continuing until the Dead Sea.

All these shall be your boundaries on all sides.

Commentary:

southward
  Literally, 'down.'

Rivlah
  This is identified as Dafne (Targum Yonathan; Saadia), the current Khirbet Dafne, 10 miles north of Lake Hulah. The Septuagint renders it as Bela. It appears obvious that the border veers sharply toward the west, most probably at Shefam.

Eyin
  A proper name (Targum; Rashi), or, 'the spring' (Septuagint).

run along
  Or, 'strike' (Radak, Sherashim; Bachya), or, 'become obliterated' (HaKethav VeHaKabbalah).

Kinnereth...
  That is, the Sea of Gallilee.
