Etham


E’tham (bounded by the sea), one of the early resting-places of the Israelites when they quitted Egypt; described as “in the edge of the wilderness.” Ex. 13:20; Num. 33:6, 7. Etham may be placed where the cultivable land ceases, near the Seba Biár or Seven Wells, about three miles from the western side of the ancient head of the gulf.
