yam suph


Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Suph
SUPH . A place-name in Deuteronomy 1:1 ‘In the Arabah over against Suph’; AV [Note: Authorized Version.] reads ‘over against the Red Sea,’ in which case it has been assumed that the word for ‘Sea’ had fallen out in the received Hebrew text. Suph means ‘weeds,’ and the ‘Sea of Weeds’ was the Hebrew name of the Red Sea. The AV [Note: Authorized Version.] is almost certainly correct; the expression was so understood also by LXX [Note: Septuagint.] and Vulgate. It is evident that by the ‘Red Sea’ the Gulf of ‘Akabah is meant, as in Numbers 21:4 and elsewhere.

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Suph
(Deuteronomy 1:1 , RSV; marg., "some ancient versions have the Red Sea," as in the A.V.). Some identify it with Suphah (Numbers 21:14 , marg., A.V.) as probably the name of a place. Others identify it with es-Sufah = Maaleh-acrabbim (Joshua 15:3 ), and others again with Zuph (1 Samuel 9:5 ). It is most probable, however, that, in accordance with the ancient versions, this word is to be regarded as simply an abbreviation of Yam-suph, i.e., the "Red Sea."
