Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 מָּארָן proper name, of a location Paran, Φαραν (compare proper name פארן Sinaitic Inscription); — usually ׳מִדְבַּר פ home of Ishmael Genesis 21:21 (E), traversed by Israel in Exodus Numbers 12:16 (E), Numbers 10:12; Numbers 13:2,26 (all P); it lay northeast from (the traditional) Sinai, with Gulf of Akaba and the ± Arabah as its east border; in the same region was ׳הַר פ Deuteronomy 33:2; Habakkuk 3:3, — perhaps coast-range of mountains along west shore of Gulf of Akaba; ׳פ alone 1 Kings 11:18 (twice in verse) (between Midian and Egypt); Deuteronomy 1:1 (location dubious). — 1 Samuel 25:1 see II. מָעוֺן below עון. — See Rob BR i, 177f. Palmer Desert of Exodus , 284ff., Di Dr Dt.

פגג (√ of following; meaning dubious; Late Hebrew מַּגָּה unripe fig, plural מַּגִּין; so Syriac in Lexicons; Arabic unripe fruit; ᵑ7מַּגָּא unripe grape; compare Post in Hastings DB. 'Fig' Tristr NHB 352 Löw p. 391).

Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

פָּארָן (prob. a region [“abounding in foliage, from the root, No. I., or”] abounding in caverns, see the root, No. II.), [Paran], pr.n. of an uncultured and mountainous region lying between Arabia Petræa, Palestine, and Idumæa, Genesis 21:21; Numbers 10:12, 13:3, 26 Numbers 13:26; Deuteronomy 1:1; 1 Samuel 25:1; 1 Kings 11:18 and more fully called הַר־פָּארָן Habakkuk 3:3 הָרֵי פָארָן Deuteronomy 33:2 it appears to be the same as אֵיל פָּארָן אֲשֶׁר־עַל־הַמִּדְבָּר i.e. “the grove of Paran which is over the desert,” i.e. to the north of the desert. In that part Josephus mentions the valley of Pharan abounding in caverns, Bell. Jud. iv. 9, § 4. Altogether different from this is the region and valley of Feiran (فعران, فيران), near Mount Sinai (these were confounded even by Niebuhr, Descr. of Arabia, p. 402), as was long ago observed by Makrizi; see the passage in Burckhardt’s Travels in Syria, p. 974, 1080, Germ. ed. (This is also cited by Winer, p. 763; but he does not correct the error pointed out.)
