Hebrew - Zin

(zihn) Rocky desert area through which Israel passed en route from Egypt to Canaan (Numbers 20:1; Numbers 27:14; Numbers 33:36). The wilderness of Zin, stretching from Kadesh-barnea to the Dead Sea, formed part of the southern border of Canaan and later Judah (Numbers 34:3-4; Joshua 15:1,Joshua 15:3). “From the wilderness of Zin to Rehob” in Galilee encompasses almost the whole Promised Land (Numbers 13:21). The wilderness of Zin should be distinguished from the wilderness of Sin which embraces the western Sinai plateau. See Negeb; Palestine; Sin, Wilderness of; Wilderness.
