Suph, Suphah

SUPH, SUPHAH (sūf, Heb. sûph). KJV has “the Red Sea” for both names. Suph (Deut.1.1, asv, rsv, niv) is the place in front of which Moses repeated the law to Israel. The sea (yam sûph) that the Israelites crossed in their flight from Egypt should be called the Reed Sea rather than the Red Sea. See Red Sea. Suphah (Num.21.14, asv, rsv, niv) is also east of Jordan. Neither place can be identified.
