Dizahab (meaning "region of gold" or "abundant in gold") was one of the places bounding the arabah. It is mentioned in Deuteronomy 1:1: "These are the words Moses spoke to all Israel in the Arabah — facing Suph, between Paran and Tophel, Laban, Hazeroth and Dizahab."

On Burtons map it is located south of Mt Horab and Elat on the northwestern shore of the Gulf of Aqaba a bit northeast of the desert of Paran which is a wadi running across the southern part of the Sinai from the Gulf of Suez to the Gulf of Aqabah. Tophel is in southwest Jordan a bit to the north of Elat along the boder of Edom and Midian on the road north to Petra and Moab.

The sea of Suph is referenced in 1 Kings 9:26 And a navy hath king Solomon made in Ezion-Geber, that is beside Eloth, on the edge of the Sea of Suph, in the land of Edom. Laban is the land of Laban or Aram in the extreme north of the Seir and Hazeroth is a station of the Exodus between Elat and Kadesh Barnea.
