Blocks of “wilderness,” or desert, traversed by the Israelites. There is one wilderness block described before the Red Sea Crossing, followed by three or four to Mount Sinai. Could such a huge wilderness journey to Aqaba really have been only loosely mentioned—followed by three crammed-together wildernesses, described in more detail—including a war, and the beginning of miraculous providence of manna and water, all in the final right-hand triangle?
