I don't think that a full understanding of certain scriptures, Isaiah, for 
example, is possible without an understanding of the geography, place 
names, regions inhabited by certain peoples, etc. For this reason I would 
favor a set of scriptures which contains every place name, regions 
inhabited, various historical periods, etc.
