Palestina; Palestine

Boyd’s Bible Dictionary:

(land of sojourners). Philistia, land of the Philistines (Psa. 60:8; 83:7). Palestine (Ex. 15:14; Isa. 14:29,31). Palestine (Joel 3:4). Canaan (Gen. 12:5; Ex. 15:15); Holy Land (Zech. 2:12). The indefinitely bounded region promised to Abraham, lying between the Mediterranean Sea and Jordan River and Dead Sea. It also embraced the Hebrew settlements beyond Jordan (Gen. 15:18; 17:8; Num. 24:2-12; Deut. 1:7).

Concise Bible Dictionary:

The Hebrew word, Pelesheth, occurs but four times, and did not allude to the whole of the land of Canaan, as the name Palestine is now applied; but was restricted to part of the coast of the Mediterranean, occupied by the Philistines. In Exodus 15:14-15, Palestina, Edom, and Moab are mentioned, and then “all the inhabitants of Canaan.” In Joel 3:4, Tyre and Sidon are not included in the term. In these passages, and in Isaiah 14:29, 31, it is usual now to translate the word PHILISTIA (as in the RV), the Hebrew being the same as in Psalm 60:8; Psalm 87:4; Psalm 108:9. See CANAAN and SYRIA.
