Transcript 358 PICTURESQUE PALESTINE. The prospect from the mountain-top—a huge naked block of strangely shaped syenitic granite on which is built a chapel dedicated to the saint- discloses three-fourths of the peninsula: from Hammam Far'un on the north-west to Wady el 'Ain on the north-east —from Jebel Musa to the glimmering waters of the twin gulfs, and the hills of Arabia and Africa on either hand beyond. Serbal is seen in all its grandeur; U mm Shomer and Zebfr break the view southwards ; and, though Ras Mohammad is invisible, the two arms of the Red Sea are almost seen at the point of separation. Wonderful are the effects of the colouring! Delicate are the gradations of light and shade! Intense is the silence! —The warmer tints are even now deepening; the shadows are lengthening; as the sunlight fades speechlessly out of these mountains where God spake with man, and proclaimed the Law which is more everlasting than the hills themselves !
