Journey

A "sabbath-day's journey," among the Jews, seems to have been reckoned at about seven furlongs, or nearly one mile, Matthew 24:20 Acts 1:12 . An ordinary day's journey is about twenty miles. Persons starting on a journey in the East frequently make their first stage a short one, that they may the more easily send back for any forgotten articles or necessary supplies. This may perhaps apply to the "day's journey" of the parents of Jesus, mentioned in Luke 2:44 .

For the journeyings of the Israelites, see EXODUS , and WANDERINGS.
