East: 1. The orient (mizrah); the rising of the sun. Thus "the east country" is the country lying to the east of Syria, the Elymais

(Zechariah 8:7)

2. Properly what is in front of one, or a country that is before or in front of another; the rendering of the word kedem. In pointing out the quarters, a Hebrew always looked with his face toward the east. The word kedem is used when the four quarters of the world are described (Genesis 13:14; 28:14) and mizrah when the east only is distinguished from the west (Joshua 11:3; Psalms 50:1)

(Psalms 103:12) etc. In (Genesis 25:6) "eastward" is literally "unto the land of kedem;" i.e., the lands lying east of Palestine, namely, Arabia, Mesopotamia, etc.
