Transcript THE DESERT OF SINAI. journey next brings him to an elevated plain, where there are wells of water and palm-trees; and then he descends again to the sea coast, having been forced to pass round the back of a mountain, which reaches out into the sea. Thus the character of the country, and distances from point to point, exactly agree with the Bible narrative. And this is the case the whole way to Mount Sinai: for next comes a large plain, that answers well to the Wilderness of Sin, where the Israelites were first fed with manna (Exodus xvi. 1); and from that plain one of the principal Wadys affords an easy road to Mount Sinai, a day's journey from which is a spot which tradition marks as the site of the battle of Rephidim, and which agrees well with the short description we have of that battle-field. So mountainous is the country, that there is only one other route which could possibly have been followed by the Israelites; and the mention of the encampment by the sea renders that almost impossible. Thus the features of the country bear out and explain th eBible narrative; and research here, as elsewhere in Bible lands, confirms our belief in the truth of that history of God's chosen people which has been given us in the Holy Scriptures.
