Mas'ey

  
Forward
 33:1
 33:2
33:1 First Reading
These are the journeys of the Israelites, who had left Egypt in organized groups under the leadership of Moses and Aaron.
Eleh mas'ey veney-Yisra'el asher yats'u me'erets Mitsrayim letsiv'otam beyad-Moshe ve'Aharon.
33:2 Moses recorded their stops along the way at God's command. These were their stops along the way:
Vayichtov Moshe et-motsa'eyhem lemas'eyhem al-pi Adonay ve'eleh mas'eyhem lemotsa'eyhem.



Commentary:

organized groups
  See Exodus 12:51. Also see Exodus 6:26, 7:4, 12:1, 12:17.

stops
  Or, 'starting points,' literally, 'goings out' (Targum; Ibn Ezra; HaKethav VeHaKabbalah). Or, 'events,' 'these are the events along the way' (Radak, Sherashim; HaKethav VeHaKabbalah; cf. Joshua 2:23). Since most of the place names here occur nowhere else in the Bible, it appears that they were given by the Israelites to commemorate specific events (Abarbanel).
