MASSAH

(mass' ssuh) Place name meaning, “to test, try.” Stopping place during the wilderness wandering near the base of Mount Horeb (Sinai). Moses gave the name in response to the people's desire to put God to the test by demanding water (Exodus 17:7). Massah became a reminder of Israel's disobedience or hardness of heart (Deuteronomy 6:16; Deuteronomy 9:22; Psalms 95:8). Massah often appears together with Meribah (meaning “to strive with, contend, find fault with”; Exodus 17:7; Deuteronomy 33:8; Psalms 95:8). Deuteronomy 33:8 gives a poetic account of the origin of the Levitical priesthood at Massah.
