Smith's Bible Dictionary
Elim

(strong trees), (Exodus 15:27; Numbers 33:9) the second station where the Israelites encamped after crossing the Red Sea. It is distinguished as having had "twelve wells (rather fountains') of waster, and three-score and ten palm trees." It is generally identified by the best authorities with Wady Garundel , about halfway down the shore of the Gulf of Suez. A few palm trees still remain, and the water is excellent.

ATS Bible Dictionary
Elim

A station of the Israelites, on their way to mount Sinai, Exodus 15:27; 16:1; Numbers 33:9, generally taken to be the present Wady Ghurundel, a broad valley running southwest of Suez. Here are fountains and a brook, many bushes and shrubs, and a few tamarisks and palms.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Trees, (Exodus 15:27; Numbers 33:9), the name of the second station where the Israelites encamped after crossing the Red Sea. It had "twelve wells of water and threescore and ten palm trees." It has been identified with the Wady Ghurundel, the most noted of the four wadies which descend from the range of et-Tih towards the sea. Here they probably remained some considerable time. The form of expression in Exodus 16:1 seems to imply that the people proceeded in detachments or companies from Elim, and only for the first time were assembled as a complete host when they reached the wilderness of Sin (q.v.).

ELIM

e'-lim ('elim, "terebinths"; Aileim):

The second encampment of the Israelites after crossing the Red Sea. It was a contrast to the previous camp called "Marah" because of the bitterness of the waters, for there "were twelve springs of water, and threescore and ten palm trees" (Exodus 15:27; Exodus 16:1 Numbers 33:9 f). The traditional site is an oasis in Wady Ghurundel, circa 63 miles from Suez.
