They say, therefore, that the more remote places are called, מדינת הים  The region of the sea.  But neither does this please me: for there is no need of so great a distance, to make any place to be called,  The region of the sea,  & c. But it is spoken in relation to the western coast of the land of Israel; on which side there are no [ heathen] cities near, and swallowed up by the land.
