    Another mystery… why are there no stations in the Wilderness of Sin? And why do the named stations start up again once they leave the Wilderness of Sin but before they enter the Wilderness of Sinai?

    Exo 17:1 JPS And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, by their stages, according to the commandment of the LORD, and encamped in Rephidim; and there was no water for the people to drink.

    Num 33:11-15 JPS And they journeyed from the Red Sea, and pitched in the wilderness of Sin. (12) And they journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, and pitched in Dophkah. (13) And they journeyed from Dophkah, and pitched in Alush. (14) And they journeyed from Alush, and pitched in Rephidim, where was no water for the people to drink. (15) And they journeyed from Rephidim, and pitched in the wilderness of Sinai.
