Rephidim – The Rock at Horeb

Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.

…….EXODUS 17:6

Just over the western side of the mountain range, opposite the Holy Precinct, these is an area which features an incredible, five to six-story rock perched upon a hill that is about 200 feet high.

This rock is split through the middle and displays the pattern of water erosion and evidence that numerous streams came forth in several directions.
The Altar

About 200 yards from this rock, is another altar constructed of stones.


“And Moses built an altar…..”

…….EXODUS 17:15

This area also features an immense plain area in which the battle with the Amalekites could have taken place.

Twelve fountains of water, and threescore and ten palm trees; and they pitched there.


A large number of Wells


While exploring the site in 1985 with Samran and his work crew, they found very large wells, with just a few inches extending above the ground.  There was a line of these which extended along the lake bordering the “holy precinct”.

  1. There is so much physical proof that God is real and the stories in the Bible are real yet there is nothing but man’s word that shows God is not real. These photos and this site give many the proof they are looking for in the question “Is God Real”? Some would ask why isn’t this information published and shouted on TV. The answer is: if someone proves that God is real then we must answer to Him so our children are taught lies so man can live the way he chooses and not the way God wants.
    Thank you for publishing this information.

    • It’s saddens me deeply that so many try to hard to not believe, when the presence of God is the greatest presence.

      The Devils greatest achievement is getting people to believe God doesn’t exsist. -His power to win souls.

  2. There is so much evidence that not only that GOD exixts but HE is in total control of the Universe apart from archeological discoveries and religious artifacts attesting to the stories in the bible and other religious books, its only those who chose to be on the opposite end that refuse to accept the truth, however HIS truth need not be told to convince unbelievers and atheist, life itsself unfolds in such an organised fashion that it becomes obviously clear that there is a greater force that is in charge and that supernatural force is GOD who manifested Himself as a Christ to salvage man from eternal extinction, praise be to GOD!
