Transcript ■^^^■■■■1 SINAI had told M when He appeared to him in the bush, thai Israel should worship Him? 1 three main considerations which must be kept in \ i< w in any attempt with m knowl' lecide whether Jebel Musa or Jebel Serial be the M Mount generally term it. ••Sinai." are—(i) tradition; , phical position the n ments of the biblical account of ti it march of the Israelites through tl insula and as to the refi s to Horeb and Sinai in other puns of the Bibl< the ground.- One docs not expert to be able to exhibit any m-w arguments, make i suggestion by which old athletes on this old battle-ground of biblical topography will be induced to desert their opinions. This were presumptuous! It ma\ bewoith i that if Serbal be the true Sinai, there is n n at all why the Israelites should ha. farther south to Jebel Musa. (i.) As to the traditions: we have already considered main of them at diit< i our journey, and have seen that, however mixed be the Arab and Mohammadan traditions ab Moses, the) Still do hold in solution, as it w v\ ancient Jewish folk loir ^> these ries have been manipulated by the monks, and thus fashioned have been cunning.) and carefully nurtured by them in the Arab mind, in order that a certain n almosphei. l>C shed round the convent, so .is to restrain the lawless instincts of the Bedawin !••■• \nti«|. ii. 12) speaks of Mount Sinai as bein rded with awe from the rumour thai C tit there, and as bein- the highest of all the mountains in that country, the whole passage having nee to Motes driving up Jethro's sheep to feed on tl .1 pa< 1 which had ever been deemed sacred.

We have alread) seen that Pharan ai a a ntn with il ps 1 known place in the time of Ptolemy PKiladrlphu <»! that it was a chief city of the ancient Amalekites is a matter of conjecture certainly bul th< plausible inds for the conjecture. There is no evidence, on the other hand, that the valle) bd Musa were ever inhabited to any gnat extent; rather the n Its ISKM1 and comparative isolation therefore would not unnaturally foster the belief that some p tity attached to the mountain. Two inscriptions on marble exist at the convent itself referring to the foundation oi the building. They are let into the external wall facin. die ether in Arabic These two inscriptions relate, with some variation, that, "The hoi ;>t ai. where Cod spoke to Moses, was built from the foundation by Justinian, thr- |< the Romans (dependent on God, and hoping in the promi hia lord), ii tal remembrance of himself and of his consort.
