    Sinai, Mount

    A mountain on the Sinai Peninsula, near which Moses and the Israelites camped three months after their exodus from Egypt; it is also called Mount Horeb (Ex. 3:1). Here God gave his law to Moses for the house of Israel; here also the tabernacle was built (Ex. 19:2; 20:18; 24:12; 32:15).
