        (trees), the second station of Israel after crossing the Red Sea. Ex 15:27; Num 33:9. It had 12 wells and 70 palm trees, and has been identified with Wady Gharandel, which is the first pleasant spot in the wilderness after leaving 'Ayun Musa.

After a Photograph by Frith.) in Wady Useit or in Wady Taiyibeh. It certainly must have been in this neighborhood of running brooks, feathery tamarisks, wild acacias, and stately palm trees.
