Ein Gedi is located on the western shores of the Dead Sea. A unique oasis to this day, it is a combination of a hot climate and an abundance of drinking water in arid desert surroundings. According to Rabbi Elijah ben Shlomo Zalman Kremer, this verse hints to the days of Joshua when the Jews entered the Land of Israel. Located near the Jordan river, Ein Gedi is on the border of Israel that the Jewish people crossed upon entering the land. Just like the henna tree was a permanent fixture of this region, God’s presence became a permanent fixture on earth when the Jews entered Israel as a nation for the first time.
