Bridgeway Bible Dictionary
When the Bible speaks of the Red Sea, it refers only to the northern part where the sea divides into two arms, between which lies the Sinai Peninsular. The western arm is the Gulf of Suez (Numbers 33:10) and the eastern arm the Gulf of Aqabah (Numbers 14:25; Numbers 21:4; 1 Kings 9:26; see also EZION-GEBER).
