What is Ezion-geber?
        (giant's backbone), a city on the Red Sea, the last station of the Israelites before they came to the wilderness of Zin, Num 33:35; Deut 2:8; the station of Solomon's navy, 1 Kgs 9:26; 2 Chr 8:17, and of Jehoshaphat's navy. 1 Kgs 22:48. Probably it was at 'Ain el-Ghudydn, about 10 miles up what is now the dry bed of the Arabah. Kiepert and Robinson suppose that the northern end of the gulf anciently flowed up to this point.
