The Bible


Psalmid 116:8



8 Sest sina kiskusid mu hinge surmast välja, mu silmad silmaveest, mu jala komistusest.



Extremity (of land)

         On the Viga, Outskirts of the City of Mexico, by Samuel Colman

Often translated as “edge,” “border,” “boundary,” “outskirts,” “far places” and other ways, this term is used in the Bible for the farthest reaches of an area, and generally represents either an introduction into the state it surrounds, a protection for that state or simply the area within that state which is lowest and furthest from the Lord.
