2 Samuel 8:6,14..6 Then David put garrisons among the Arameans of Damascus, and the Arameans became servants to David, bringing tribute. And the Lord helped David wherever he went. 14 He put garrisons in Edom. In all Edom he put garrisons, and all the Edomites became servants to David. And the Lord helped David wherever he went.
With the Lord’s help, David conquered the land of Israel from the Egypt River on the south to the Euphrates River on the North as described in 2 Samuel 8,10. His enemies fled before him. For a map of the Kingdom of David and Solomon click here.
God promised this land to Abraham, “To your descendants I have given this land, From the river of Egypt as far as the great river, the river Euphrates:” A God later confirms this promise to Abraham’s son Isaac and Isaac’s son Jacob. When the Israelites were about to invade the Promised Land, God repeated the land promise: From the wilderness and this Lebanon, even as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and as far as the Great Sea toward the setting of the sun will be your territory.

The land God ultimately promised to Israel included everything from the Egypt River on the south to the Euphrates River on the north and everything from the Mediterranean Sea on the west to a line somewhat east of the Jordan River.
The Jews finally lost all the land of David between 930BC-70AD, but as prophesied they returned and formed Isreal in May 1948. They have increased the land but they still are not yet at the boundaries promised.
God kept His promises to Israel and in the future, Israel will possess all the land promised.
