* from the wilderness of Zin.
The wilderness of Zin, is different from that called Sin.
(Ex 16:1.) The latter was near Egypt, but the former was near
Kadesh Barnea, not far from the borders of Canaan. It seems
to be the valley mentioned by Burckhardt; which, under the
names of El Ghor and El Araba, form a continuation of the
valley of the Jordan, extending from the Dead sea to the
eastern branch of the Red sea. The whole plain presents to
the view an appearance of shifting sands, whose surface is
broken by innumerable undulations and low hills. A few talk,
tamarisk, and rethem trees grow among the sand hills; but the
depth of sand precludes all vegetation of herbage.

Rehob was a city, afterwards given to the tribe of Asher,
situated near mount Lebanon, at the northern extremity of the
Promised Land, on the road which leads to Hamath, and west of
Laish or Dan: compare Jud 1:31; 18:28; Jos 19:28.
