Reference: Island


(Heb 'i, "dry land," as opposed to water) occurs in its usual signification (Isa 42:4,10,12,15, comp. Jer 47:4), but more frequently simply denotes a maritime region or sea-coast (Isa 20:6, R.V.," coastland;" Isa 23:2,6; Jer 2:10; Eze 27:6-7). (See Chittim.) The shores of the Mediterranean are called the "islands of the sea" (Isa 11:11), or the "isles of the Gentiles" (Ge 10:5), and sometimes simply "isles" (Ps 72:10); Eze 26:15,18; 27:3,35; Da 11:18).
