The Mountain Of God

Moses Finds God

Mount Sinai Is In The Horeb Mountain Range

Horeb was where Moses received his commission to return to Egypt to lead the Israelites out in the Exodus (see Who Was The Exodus Pharaoh?), and was later the place where he received the The Ten Commandments (see also The Ten Commandments Now?) from The Lord. Horeb, meaning desert or mountain of the dried-up ground, was the name for the mountain complex of which Mount Sinai was one of the summits. The range is about 2 miles / 3 kilometers long and 1 mile / 1½ kilometers wide, with a plain at the north-east end, where the Israelites camped for nearly a year after the Exodus.
