Freebase

  1. Promised Land

    The Promised Land is the land promised or given by God, according to the Tanakh, to the Israelites, the descendants of Jacob. The promise is first made to Abraham and then renewed to his son Isaac, and to Isaac's son Jacob, Abraham's grandson. The promised land was described in terms of the territory from the River of Egypt to the Euphrates river and was given to their descendants after Moses led the Exodus out of Egypt. The term should not be confused with the expression "Land of Israel" which is first used in 1 Samuel 13:19, when the Israelite tribes were already in the Land of Canaan. The term is also used in the Book of Mormon, in which it refers to the American continent.
