On this map, the following applies:
- Arabia is mentioned, but this does not mean that the Israelites ever were exactly where the word “Arabia” is placed on this map.
- The locations of Midian and the deserts of Shur and Zin are not exact. A number of scriptures indicate that the desert of Zin may have covered most of the eastern shore on the Gulf of Aqaba. The desert of Paran is not marked on this map, but apparently it covered a part of the desert of Zin, and lay close to Ezion-Geber, south-east or east of it, in the Kadesh area.
- On this map, the general area of the land of Edom is indicated by waved lines. – Numbers 20:14–19 records that at the end of the forty desert years, this happened: The Israelites were in the Kadesh area (see the map above), and they wanted to pass through the land of Edom, into the Promised Land. But, the king of Edom did not allow them to pass through his land, Numbers 20:20–21. This forced the Israelites make a long trek around the land of Edom, on its eastern side. That extra trek is marked on the map with a thick black arrow.
