The map below traces the journey of the Children of Israel from Egypt to Mount Sinai as described in Exodus 12:37-19:2.
- The Children of Israel leave Egypt from Ramses (Exodus 12:37) on the 15th of Nissan.
- Their first stop on the journey from Egypt is Succoth (Exodus 12:37).
- From Succoth they travel to Etham (Exodus 13:19).
- They camp between Midgol and the sea while the Egyptian army pursues them (Exodus 14:1-14).
- The sea splits, allowing the Jews to cross on dry land while the pursuing Egyptian army drowns (Exodus 14:15-31).
- The people travel to Marah where they find bitter water. God sweetens the water for them, gives them some laws and promises to be their healer (Exodus 15:23-26).
- In Elim they find 12 springs of water and 70 palm trees (Exodus 15:27).
- In the wilderness of Sin they complain about the lack of food and are given manna from heaven and quail to eat (Exodus 16:1-36).
- They again lack water in Rephidim. God provides water from a rock after which Amalek attacks (Exodus 17:1-16).
- From Rephidim the people travel to the wilderness of Sinai and camp near Mount Sinai (Exodus 19:1-2). It is here that they are given the Torah, make the golden calf and build the Tabernacle.
