It separates Arabia from Egypt and Ethiopia, and is computed to be 150 leagues in length from Suez to the straits of Babelmandel. The upper part is divided into two gulfs, that to the East called the Elanitic, from the city Elana at the northern extremity, and that to the west, the Heroopolitic, from the city of Heroopolis. The former is called by the Arabians Bahr el Akaba, the sea of Akaba; and the latter Bahr el Kolzum, the sea of destruction, or Clysmæ; which was that which the Israelites passed. and the: Exo 14:21, Exo 14:22 Reciprocal: Num 20:8 - the rod Deu 26:8 - the Lord 2Ki 4:29 - lay my staff Isa 43:16 - maketh Isa 63:12 - to make Mar 4:39 - he arose
