(Heb. Taberah', תִּבְעֵרָה, consumption; Sept. ἐμπυρισμός ), a place in the wilderness of Paran; so called from the fact that "the fire of Jehovah burned" (בָּעֲרָה ) among the Israelites there in consequence of their complaints (Numbers 11:3). It lay at the next station beyond Horeb, and must therefore be sought somewhere in Wady Saal. (See EXODE). Keil argues (Comment. ad loc.) from the expression that it was "in the uttermost part of the camp," and from the omission of the name in Numbers 33 :that the place was identical with the station Kibroth-hattaavah next named; but he overlooks the fact that both these are separately mentioned in Deuteronomy 9:22.
