E'lim. (strong trees). Exodus 15:27; Numbers 33:9. The second station, where the Israelites encamped, after crossing the Red Sea. It is distinguished as having had "twelve wells (rather 'fountains') of water, and three-score and ten palm trees." It is generally identified, by the best authorities, with Wady Garundel, about halfway down the shore of the Gulf of Suez. A few palm trees still remain, and the water is excellent.
