Mount Horeb

Resource Toolbox

The name means desert, a poor dry place. Horeb was situated so near mount Sinai, that it appears to be but one and the same place, only that Sinai is east and Horeb west. This mountain will always be memorable in Scripture; because here it was the Lord appeared to Moses. (Exodus 3:1 etc.) Here the Lord seemed to stand, as if to intimate that the law was given by Moses, "but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ." (See also 1 Kings 19:8).
