Bamah

Additional Links

Ezekiel 20:29; "What is the high place whereunto ye hie habaim , alliteration to Bamah? And the name thereof is called. Bamah (i.e. "high place", akin to the Greek pagan bomos ) unto this day." The very name implies the place is not sanctioned by ME; (God); it implies its own paganness: My place is called mizbeach , "altar." Your sacrifices even to ME on a "high place" instead of My "altar" in the temple, were therefore a "provocation," Ezekiel 20:28 (Deuteronomy 12:1-5). Ewald makes the clause in Ezekiel a quotation from an older prophet.
