And when we departed from Horeb
As the Lord commanded them to do, when they were obedient:
we went through all the great and terrible wilderness;
the wilderness of Paran, called "great", it reaching from Mount Sinai to Kadeshbarnea, eleven days' journey, as Adrichomius F12 relates; and "terrible", being so hard and dry as not to be ploughed nor sown, and presented to the sight something terrible and horrible, even the very image of death; to which may be added the fiery serpents and scorpions it abounded with, ( Deuteronomy 8:15 ) ,
which ye saw by the way of the mountain of the Amorites;
that is, in the way that led to the mountain:
as the Lord our God commanded us;
to depart from Horeb, and take a tour through the wilderness towards the said mountain:
and we came to Kadeshbarnea;
having stayed a month by the way at Kibrothhattaavah, where they lusted after flesh, and seven days at Hazeroth, where Miriam was shut out of the camp for leprosy during that time.
