Talk:Elam

From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science

I wonder if anyone has considered the possibility that 'Elam' ( אלים ), of the Bible, was mistranslated as 'Elim' ( אלאם ). This would certainly make sense.

'Elim' is said to have been one of the places that the Israelites camped, following their Exodus out of Egypt. Additionally, it has been suggested that the word 'Elim' has Semetic roots, and it's location was between lands of Semetic speaking peoples.
