The Territory of Ishmael

25: 18

His descendants settled in the area from Havilah to Shur, near the border of Egypt, as you go toward Asshur. That means the territory stretched from the Euphrates River in the North to the Red Sea in the South. Havilah is the southeast border located in northeast Arabia, and Shur is the southwest border toward Assyria. So basically, his descendants settled in the Arabian Peninsula.

And he died in the presence of all his relatives. This is a clear fulfillment of what the Angel of the LORD, or the second person of the Trinity, Yeshua Messiah, had prophesied earlier. He said: He will be a wild donkey of a man roaming free, his hand will be upon everyone, and he will dwell to the east in the presence of all his brothers (see Ej – Hagar and the Angel of the LORD).
