Exodus 15:27 (King James Version)
And they came to Elim, where were twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters.
- This was on the northern skirts of the desert of Sin, and, according to Dr. Shaw, two leagues from Tor, and near 30 ; from Corondel, which he conjectures to be Marah, where there is a small rill, which is brackish. He found but nine of the wells, the other three being filled up with sand; but the 70 ; palm trees had increased into more than 2,000.
