Sin, Wilderness Of:

lying between Elim and sinai (Exd 16:1; Num 33:11,12). This was probably the narrow plain of el-Markha, which stretches along the eastern shore of the Red Sea for several miles toward the promontory of Ras Mohammed, the southern extremity of the Sinitic Peninsula. While the Israelites rested here for some days they began to murmur on account of the want of nourishment, as they had by this time consumed all the corn they had brought with them out of Egypt. God heard their murmurings, and gave them "manna" and then quails in abundance.

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Sin, Wilderness Of:

a tract of the wilderness which the Israelites reached after leaving the encampment by the Red Sea (Numbers 33:11; 33:23). Their next halting‐place (Exodus 16:1; 17:1) was Rephidim, probably the Wady Feiran; on which supposition it would follow that Sin must lie between that way and the coast of the Gulf of Suez, and of course west of Sinai. SEE [REPHIDIM]. In the wilderness of Sin the manna was first gathered, and those who adopt the supposition that this was merely the natural product of the tarfa bush find from the abundance of that shrub in Wady es‐Sheikh, southeast of Wady Ghurundel, a proof of local identity.
