Supposing, then, that this is Elim, we can fancy die delight with which that great multitude, with its women and children, would hail the sight of o*reen trees and verdure. Yet how barren must this valley have seemed when compared with the glorious fertility of the Delta. The illustration before us gives the shapes of the ENTRANCE TO WADY GHARANDEL. chalk hills in the valley, but their barren look and the aspect of desolation must be pictured from the scenery which such a coast as Dorsetshire or Portland affords us here in England. • Both Wady Useit and Wady Gharandel lead down to the hot sulphur springs which burst out under the northern side of jebel Hammam Far un, nearly on a level with the sea. There is no way, however, except by a footpath high up the cliffs, to get round the mountain. One may be almost certain, therefore, that the Israelites crossed, as we are doing, Wady Gharandel (Elim) and Wady Useit, and so took their way to the Red Sea.
