Webster's 1913 Dictionary
  1. \Jour"ney\, n.; pl. {Journeys}. [OE. jornee, journee,
    prop., a day's journey, OF. jorn['e]e, jurn['e]e, a day, a
    day's work of journey, F. journ['e]e, fr. OF. jorn, jurn, jor

             finished half his journey.            --Milton.
    2. Travel or passage from one place to another; hence,
       figuratively, a passage through life.

    Syn: Tour; excursion; trip; expedition; pilgrimage.
    Usage: {Journey}, {Tour}, {Excursion}, {Pilgrimage}. The word
           journey suggests the idea of a somewhat prolonged
           traveling for a specific object, leading a person to
           pass directly from one point to another. In a tour, we
           take a roundabout course from place to place, more
           commonly for pleasure, though sometimes on business.
           An excursion is usually a brief tour or trip for
           pleasure, health, etc. In a pilgrimage we travel to a
           place hallowed by our religions affections, or by some
           train of sacred or tender associations. A journey on
           important business; the tour of Europe; an excursion
           to the lakes; a pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

  3. \Jour"ney\, v. t.
    To traverse; to travel over or through. [R.] ``I journeyed
    many a land.'' --Sir W. Scott.
Dream Dictionary

(1.) A day's journey in the East is from 16 to 20 miles (Num. 11:31).

(2.) A Sabbath-day's journey is 2,000 paces or yards from the city walls (Acts 1:12). According to Jewish tradition, it was the distance one might travel without violating the law of Ex. 16:29. (See SABBATH.)
