from Dan to Beersheba

From one extremely remote place to another. The phrase comes from the Old Testament. In Biblical times, "Dan" was the northern boundary of Palestine, while "Beersheba" was its southern border. I am going to take control of all the land here, from Dan to Beersheba, just you watch!
