Ain Musa

A small oasis, about seven or eight miles southwest of Suez, Egypt. It is about 250 acres in extent, with luxuriant gardens and groups of palms and tamarisks. The water of some of its springs is undrinkable, while that of others has only traces of salt, so that the popular identification of it with MARAH (Exodus 15:23) is not very plausible. Modern scholars have, more frequently, connected Ain Musa with Elim (Exodus 15:27).
