Todays Rashi presents a map, a geographical description,
of Israeli geography and the surrounding (Biblical countries).
The map is presented below and appropriate footnotes outline Rashi's comment.
Because Rashi clarifies diagrammatic material we classify this Rashi
We have explained the Rashi Ex10-13a using two methods:
The NonVerse method and the reference method. We have begun
the explanation of this Rashi above in rule #1, reference.

Verses Nu34-03:05 states the following
- The Salt Sea and Edom define the South-East border of Israel Nu34-03
- Kadesh Barnaya, the Egyptian River and the Great Sea
define the South-West border of Israel Nu34-04:05.
The above picture shows that Egypt is on the South-West of
Israel. Hence God transported locusts from Israel to Egypt
via an Eastern wind (Ex10-13a)
which brought the locusts to the South-West
