Bamah

Bamah

Bamah [Heb.,=high place], term elsewhere translated in most English editions of the Bible, but in one passage in the Book of Ezekiel it is given in the original. The word is translated earlier in the same verse. There is a pun on the verb "to go" that had in Hebrew a sound much like the word Bamah.

בָּמָה "Bamah" from "ba" (come) and "mah" (whereunto)
Denotes a place where Jewish people could come and worship idols. It also became used as a general term referring to any place used for idolatrous worship. Adonai was worshiped on the high places by Isaac.
