|Overview - Numbers 33|
|1||The two and forty journeys of the Israelites.|

Numbers 33:24 (King James Version)
And they removed from mount Shapher, and encamped in Haradah.
- The Editor of Calmet, who supposes the Israelites to be now in the regular track from Gaza to Egypt, is of opinion that mount Shapher is the ancient name of mount Cassius, Catjeh, or Cati, a huge mole of sand, almost surrounded by the Mediterranean, on which was built a temple to Jupiter Cassius. Thevenot states, that at the village of Cati there is a well of water unpleasant for drinking; but two miles off, another whose water is good after standing a little.
