So Abraham arose and journeyed throughout all the land of Canaan. And when Abraham
came to the waters of Mamre in the land of Hebron, he beheld its great worth, for
the water was sweet and the land filled with plenty.
Thus did Abraham come to dwell in the lands of Hebron; by the waters of Mamre did
he dwell; under the shadow of the terebinth tree did he spread his tent.
Summary: The land of Hebron likely refers to the area of modern-day southern Palestine.
It was here that Abraham and Sarah came to dwell after leaving the land of the Chaldeans,
located in today’s southern Iraq (B:27:6,23).
