And the children of Israel removed from Rameses
Or Pelusium, as the same Targum again:
and pitched in Succoth:
where, as the same paraphrase says, they were covered with the clouds of glory, suggesting that to be the reason of its name; but that was rather because of the booths or tents the Israelites erected, pitched, and dwelt in, during their abode there: this, according to Bunting F2, was eight miles from Rameses; according to whose computation, for want of a better guide, the distances of the several stations from each other will be given.
