Zin

ZIN (zĭn, Heb. tsin). A wilderness the Israelites traversed on their way to Canaan. It was close to the borders of Canaan (Num.13.21) and included [[Kadesh Barnea]] within its bounds (Num.20.1; Num.27.14; Num.33.36). Edom bordered it on the east, Judah on the SE (Josh.15.1-Josh.15.3), and the wilderness of Paran on the south. It was not the same as the wilderness of Sin, Zin and Sin being quite different Hebrew words.
