People's Dictionary of the Bible
Zin (zĭn), a low palm tree. The wilderness of Zin was a part of the Arabian desert south of Palestine. Numbers 13:21-22; Numbers 34:3; Joshua 15:1; Joshua 15:3; Numbers 20:1; Numbers 27:14; Numbers 33:36. Kadesh is sometimes spoken of as in the wilderness of Zin, Numbers 33:36, and again as in the wilderness of Paran. Numbers 13:26. This is explained by the fact that Paran was the general name for the whole desert, while Zin was the northeastern corner of that desert.
