Elim [EBD]

trees, (Ex. 15:27; Num. 33:9), the name of the second station where the Israelites encamped after crossing the Red Sea. It had "twelve wells of water and threescore and ten palm trees." It has been identified with the Wady Ghurundel, the most noted of the four wadies which descend from the range of et-Tih towards the sea. Here they probably remained some considerable time. The form of expression in Ex. 16:1 seems to imply that the people proceeded in detachments or companies from Elim, and only for the first time were assembled as a complete host when they reached the wilderness of Sin (q.v.).

Elim [NAVE]

ELIM, second camp of the Israelites after crossing the Red Sea, Ex. 15:27; Num. 33:9.

ELIM [SMITH]

(strong trees), (Exodus 15:27; Numbers 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 waster, 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.

ELIM [ISBE]

ELIM - e'-lim ('elim, "terebinths"; Aileim): The second encampment of the Israelites after crossing the Red Sea. It was a contrast to the previous camp called "Marah" because of the bitterness of the waters, for there "were twelve springs of water, and threescore and ten palm trees" (Ex 15:27; 16:1; Nu 33:9 f). The traditional site is an oasis in Wady Ghurundel, circa 63 miles from Suez.
