Elim in the Old Testament

Judean Hills
Elim was 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" (Ex 15:27; 16:1; Nu 33:9 f).

The traditional site is an oasis in Wady Ghurundel, circa 63 miles from Suez.
