    In the Bible, Mount Sinai (Hebrew: הַר סִינַי‬, ) is the mountain at which the Ten Commandments were given to Moses by God.[1] In the Book of Deuteronomy, these events are described as having transpired at Mount Horeb. "Sinai" and "Horeb" are generally considered to refer to the same place by scholars.[2]

    The location of the Mount Sinai described in the Bible remains disputed. The high point of the dispute was in the mid-nineteenth century.[a] Hebrew Bible texts describe the theophany at Mount Sinai in terms which a minority of scholars, following Charles Beke (1873), have suggested may literally describe the mountain as a volcano.[b]

    Mount Sinai is one of the most sacred locations in Judaism, Christianity and Islam.[5][6]

    Biblical description[edit]

    , showing the approach to Mount Sinai, 1839 painting by David Roberts, in

    The biblical account of the giving of the instructions and teachings of the Ten Commandments was given in the Book of Exodus, primarily between chapters 19–24, during which Sinai is mentioned by name twice, in Exodus 19:2; 24:16. In the story Sinai was enveloped in a cloud,[7] it quaked and was filled with smoke,[8] while lightning-flashes shot forth, and the roar of thunder mingled with the blasts of a trumpet;[7] the account later adds that fire was seen burning at the summit of the mountain.[9] In the biblical account, the fire and clouds are a direct consequence of the arrival of God upon the mountain.[10] According to the biblical story, Moses departed to the mountain and stayed there for 40 days and nights in order to receive the Ten Commandments and he did so twice because he broke the first set of the tablets of stone after returning from the mountain for the first time.

    The biblical description of God's descent[10] seems to be in conflict with the statement shortly after that God spoke to the Israelites from Heaven.[11] While biblical scholars argue that these passages are from different sources, the argues that God had lowered the heavens and spread them over Sinai,[12] and the argues that a hole was torn in the heavens, and Sinai was torn away from the earth and the summit pushed through the hole. 'The heavens' could be a metaphor for clouds and the 'lake of fire' could be a metaphor for the lava-filled crater.[13] Several bible critics[] have indicated that the smoke and fire reference from the Bible suggests that Mount Sinai was a volcano;[14] despite the absence of ash.[15] Other bible scholars have suggested that the description fits a storm[15] especially as the Song of Deborah seems to allude to rain having occurred at the time.[16] According to the biblical account, God spoke directly to the Israelite nation as a whole.[17][18]

    Sinai is mentioned by name in ten other locations in the Torah: Exodus 31:18; 34:2, Leviticus 7:38; 25:1; 26:46; 27:34, Numbers 1:1; 3:1; 9:1 and Deuteronomy 33:2. Sinai was also mentioned once by name in the rest of the Hebrew Bible in Nehemiah 9:13. In the New Testament, Paul the Apostle referred directly to Sinai in Galatians 4:24; 4:25.

    Etymology and other names[edit]

    According to the Documentary hypothesis, the name "Sinai" is only used in the Torah by the Jahwist and Priestly source, whereas is only used by the Elohist and Deuteronomist.[19]

    Review of Mount Sinai

    Reviewed October 17, 2014

    For us it was an unforgettable experience. My mother, my Husband and i climbed up this Holy Mountain last 3 years ago. This is the mountain where God spoke to Moses. Mount Sinai or Mount Moses is located on the Sinai Peninsula of Egypt is the traditional site where Moses received the Ten Commandments from God. It is 2285 metres high. It takes about 3 hours to climb the 7,498-foot peak following the Path of Moses, a stairway of nearly 4,000 steps. There is a longer, less strenuous route up the opposite side, though it is less scenic. In both cases, you should bring good hiking shoes, plenty of water, sweet or candies, sun cream, hats, and toilet papers. We have seen that a lot of pilgrims was riding the camel. But my mother dis-agreed to ride. We decided to walk while praying until we reached the top of the mountain. The summit is an excellent place from which to enjoy the spectacular sunset. It was an Amazing and Unforgettable sacrifices but we're very Grateful at the end :-). Some Info: From St. Catherine's Monastery, it is an uphill walk or camel ride to the summit of Mount Sinai. The main route to the summit is known as the Path of Moses and is lined with remains of various chapels. The steeper, more direct route (Path of Moses) is up the 3,750 "steps of penitence" in the ravine behind the monastery.

    There is both a mosque and a chapel at the summit of Mount Moses. The Chapel of the Holy Trinity was built in 1934 using the remains of the chapel built by Justinian in the 6th century. Justinian's chapel itself replaced an earlier chapel, built in 363.

    Clearly visible from the mountain is the village of St. Catherine, located some distance from the Monastery on the El Raha plain.

    Mount Sinai, also called Mountain of Moses or Mount Hareh, Hebrew Har Sinai, Arabic Jabal Mūsā, granitic peak of the south-central Sinai Peninsula, Janūb Sīnāʾ (South Sinai) muḥāfaẓah (governorate), Egypt. Mount Sinai is renowned as the principal site of divine revelation in Jewish history, where God is purported to have appeared to Moses and given him the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20; Deuteronomy 5). According to Jewish tradition, not only the decalogue but also the entire corpus of biblical text and interpretation was revealed to Moses on Sinai. The mountain is also sacred in both the Christian and Islamic traditions. Because scholars differ as to the route of the Israelite exodus from Egypt and the place-names in the scriptural account cannot be identified in terms of present sites, a positive identification of the biblical Mount Sinai cannot be made. Mount Sinai itself, however, has long been accepted as the site in the traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

    In the early Christian era the area was frequented by hermits, and in 530 CE the monastery of St. Catherine was built at the northern foot of the mountain. Still inhabited by a few monks of the autonomous Orthodox Church of Mount Sinai, it is probably the world’s oldest continuously inhabited Christian monastery (see Saint Catherine’s). Its library of ancient biblical manuscripts, including the famous 4th-century Greek Codex Sinaiticus (now in the British Museum), has been invaluable in reconstructing the text of the Bible.
