Mount Sinai in Arabia (Jebel el Lawz)

When looking in the map section of most Bibles, you will find that the traditional Exodus route is questionable. Furthermore, all Bible maps will show you that the location of  Midian is not in the Sinai Peninsula, but on the east side of the Gulf of Aqaba in Arabia. In addition, what is traditionally known as Mt. Sinai down in the bottom of the Sinai Peninsula cannot be the real Mt. Sinai (Horeb), for the Bible clearly locates  “mount Sinai in Arabia”  (Galatians 4:25).

The Real Route of the Exodus

“But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian” (Exodus 2:15). Here Moses took the daughter of Jethro, the priest of Midian, (descendant of Abraham, Genesis 25:1-2) and tended to his flocks for a period of 40 years (Acts 7:29-30).

And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly. And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice. And the Lord came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the Lord called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up. (Exodus 19:18-20).

Jebel el Lawz (blackened peak)

In 1978 Ron Wyatt found chariot parts in the Gulf of Aqaba just off the Egyptian shore. At that time, he knew that Mt. Sinai had to be on the opposite shore. Since the Biblical account tells how the people arrived at Mt. Sinai after they crossed the Red Sea; and since the Gulf of Aqaba, which Ron knew to be the crossing site, separates the Sinai Peninsula (Egypt) and Saudi Arabia, there was no doubt as to the location of Mt. Sinai being in Arabia.

In 1984 Ron Wyatt and his sons discovered the real Mount Sinai in Midian.

Jebal al Lawz – Tabuk Province, Saudi Arabia – 28° 39′ 15″ N, 35° 18′ 21″ E

This mountain in Arabia is called Jebal al Lawz, and is the highest mountain in the region. It stands at 2575 meters, which is 295 meters taller than the traditional Mt. Sinai (Gebel Musa) in the Sinai Peninsula. This mountain in Arabia stands out from the rest of those surrounding it in that its mountain peak is black.

Check map – the name “Jethro” next to the town of Al Bad, which is near Jebel el Lawz – Jethro was the leader of the Midianites who were found in this area, “East of the Gulf of Aqaba in the northwestern regions of the Arabian Desert 


In Exodus 15.27 and Numbers 33.9, Elim is decrised as a place where “there were twelve wells of water, and seventy date palms,” and that the Israelites “camped there near the water”. From the information that can be gleaned from Exodus 15.23, 16.1 and Numbers 33.9-11, Elim is described as being between Marah and the Wilderness of Sin, near the eastern shore of the Red Sea.

Elim is in Saudi Arabia in the Midian Region, with 12 wells and palms – Tabuk Province, Saudi Arabia – 28° 34′ 7.29″ N, 34° 49′ 59.46″ E

Rock of Horeb – Split Rock at Rephidim
Tabuk Province, Saudi Arabia – 28‘ 38.97″ N, 35° 14′ 6.09″ E

Exodus 17:6 – Behold, I will stand before you there upon the rock in Horeb; and you shall
strike the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel

The Saudi government does not want any disclosure of this place and has set up a fence around the mountain with a guardhouse to watch for trespassers.


  1. May I ask how to get past the guard house or did you get past the guard house? Me and my family went here last 2015 but we couldn’t get through.

  2. “Wonderful work! This is the kind of information that are meant to be shared around the internet. Disgrace on Google for now not positioning this put up higher! Come on over and seek advice from my website . Thank you =)”
