Sin, Wilderness of

Sin, Wilderness of

An area distinct from the “Wilderness of Zin.” The Wilderness of Sin was a desert area “between Elim and Sinai” (Exod 16:1), where the Israelites “complained against Moses and Aaron” (Exod 16:2-3), and where manna was first given to satisfy their hunger (Exod 16:13-36). The exodus is said to have continued to Rephidim via Dophkah and Alush (Exod 17:1; Num 33:11-12).
