Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
Why were different landmarks given earlier in the Torah?
ה' אֱלֹהֵ֛ינוּ דִּבֶּ֥ר אֵלֵ֖ינוּ בְּחֹרֵ֣ב לֵאמֹ֑ר רַב־לָכֶ֥ם שֶׁ֖בֶת בָּהָ֥ר הַזֶּֽה׃
The LORD our God spoke to us at Chorev, saying: You have stayed long enough at this mountain.
The Lands of Moav, Ammon, and Seir to the Euphrates River, are listed here but not in Bamidbar 34:1-12, where the Torah gives the boundaries of Eretz Yisrael.
Although these areas were also promised to Avraham, the Jews lost their right to them after the sin of the spies.
They will be part of the Land of Israel when Mashiach comes.
