Exodus 4:19  (King James Version)
And the LORD said unto Moses in Midian, Go, return into Egypt: for all the men are dead which sought thy life.

A country in Arabia Petra, on the eastern coast of the Red Sea, near Mount Sinai. This place is still called by the Arabs the Land of Midian, or of Jethro. Abulfeda, speaking of Midian, says, "Madyan is a city, in ruins, on the shore of the Red Sea, on the opposite side to Tabuc, from which it is distant about six days' journey. At Midian may be seen the famous well at which Moses watered the flocks of Shoib, (Jethro.) This city was the capital of the tribe of Midian
in the days of the Israelites."* for all.
