The wilderness on the south of Canaan and west of Edom. It was here Ishmael dwelt, and in which was Kadesh, where the Israelites encamped when they sent out the twelve spies, and again near the close of their wanderings. David also at one time took shelter in this wilderness. Genesis 21:21; Numbers 10:12; Numbers 12:16; Numbers 13:3,26; Deuteronomy 1:1; 1 Samuel 25:1; 1 Kings 11:18 . In Deuteronomy 33:2; Habakkuk 3:3 MOUNT PARAN is spoken of, which doubtless refers to some mount in the same district. Paran is now called et Tih, it lies between Kadesh and Sinai.
