Encampment by the Sea
ENCAMPMENT BY THE SEA . One of the stations in the itinerary of the children of Israel, where they encamped after leaving Elim, Numbers 33:10 . If the position of Elim be in the Wady Gharandel , then the camp by the sea is on the shore of the Gulf of Suez, somewhere south of the point where the Wady Tayibeh opens to the coast. The curious return of the line of march to the seashore is a phenomenon that has always arrested the attention of travellers to Mt. Sinai: and if Mt. Sinai be really in the so-called Sinaitic peninsula, the camp can be located within a half-mile.
