Elim


E’lim (strong trees), Ex. 15:27; Num. 33:9, the second station where the Israelites encamped after crossing the Red Sea. It is distinguished as having had “twelve wells (rather ‘fountains’) of water, and three-score and ten palm trees.” It is generally identified by the best authorities with Wady Garundel, about halfway down the shore of the Gulf of Suez. A few palm trees still remain, and the water is excellent.
