ē´lim ( אילם , 'ēlı̄m , "terebinths"; Αἰλείμ , Aileı́m ): The second encampment of the Israelites after crossing the Red Sea. It was a contrast to the previous camp called "Marah" because of the bitterness of the waters, for there "were twelve springs of water, and threescore and ten palm trees" (Exodus 15:27; Exodus 16:1; Numbers 33:9 f). The traditional site is an oasis in Wādy Ghurundel , circa 63 miles from Suez. See EXODUS; WANDERINGS OF ISRAEL .
