Sin, The Wilderness of. A tract of the wilderness, which the Israelites reached, after leaving the encampment by the Red Sea. Numbers 33:11; Numbers 33:23. Their next halting-place, Exodus 16:1; Exodus 17:1 was Rephidim, probably the Wady Feiran; see Rephidim; on which supposition, it would follow, that Sin must lie between that way, and the coast of the Gulf of Suez, and, of course, west of Sinai. In the wilderness of Sin, the manna was first gathered, and those who adopt the supposition that this was merely the natural product of the tarfa bush, find from the abundance of that shrub in Wady es-Sheikh, southeast of Wady Ghurundel, a proof of local identity.
