Egypt [Heb: Misraim (dual) or Misor (singular)] was a nation bordering the land of Canaan. It is most notable for being the nation that enslaved the Hebrews (the people group who would become the independent nation of Israel) for centuries and was the birthplace of of Moses.

Asides from this, this the nation where Joseph was sent as slave only to later become its Prime Minister; and the nation where Jesus, his father, and mother hid while Herod the Great posed a threat to their safety.
