    Thomas, you asked about the sets of three. From the integrated exodus itinerary, note that there are three stations in Goshen (Rameses, Succoth, Etham), three sites at the Red Sea crossing (Migdol, Pi-hahiroth, Baal-zephon), three days in the WoEtham/WoShur, three stations on the Red Sea coast (Marah, Elim, Red Sea), and three stations approaching Mount Sinai (Dophkah, Alush, Rephidim). This pattern of three sites per region continues throughout the entire integrated itinerary from Goshen to Canaan, through 48 stations (actually 45, but three are visited twice). Many more elements in the wilderness narratives appear in sets of three… roads, wildernesses, regions, national territories, origins, destinations, campaigns, miracles, just about everything. This is a divine text. Only Almighty God can make ‘random’ terrain and historical events fit a numerical pattern.
