This is a fine map depicting the Exodus from Egypt and the wanderings of the Children of Israel. The entire lower part of the map is elaborately engraved with scenes from the wandering and Moses receiving the Ten Commandments at Mt. Sinai. Adam and Eve and two putti flank the title cartouche, and the map is further decorated with a convoy of ships bringing cedar for the building of Solomon's Temple, and Jonah and the whale. This is the third state published by Pieter and Jacob Keur in a Dutch Bible.
