Bamah

Additional Links

This word, which ordinarily designates a "high place" (see High Places), is introduced in Ezekiel 20:29 as a generic name for an idolatrous place of worship for the purpose of playing upon the word, as though "Bamah" were compounded from "ba" (come) and "mah" (whereunto); the term being thus interpreted as a place to which people come—that is, for worship.
