What Does Elim Mean?

Elim is named after an Oasis mentioned in the bible that God’s people discovered as they walked through the desert.
Exodus 15:27 says that at Elim there were 70 palm trees clustered around 12 wells, and after the dust and heat and thirst of the desert, the shade of the stately palms and the cool springs must have been a welcoming sight, and a place of shelter and refreshing.
