the water
Deuteronomy 33:8
And of Levi he said, "Give to Levi thy Thummim, and thy Urim to thy godly one, whom thou didst test at Massah, with whom thou didst strive at the waters of Mer'ibah;
Psalm 95:8
Harden not your hearts, as at Mer'ibah, as on the day at Massah in the wilderness,
Psalm 106:32-48
32
They angered him at the waters of Mer'ibah, and it went ill with Moses on their account;
33
for they made his spirit bitter, and he spoke words that were rash.
34
They did not destroy the peoples, as the LORD commanded them,
35
but they mingled with the nations and learned to do as they did.
36
They served their idols, which became a snare to them.
37
They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons;
38
they poured out innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with blood.
39
Thus they became unclean by their acts, and played the harlot in their doings.
40
Then the anger of the LORD was kindled against his people, and he abhorred his heritage;
41
he gave them into the hand of the nations, so that those who hated them ruled over them.
42
Their enemies oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their power.
43
Many times he delivered them, but they were rebellious in their purposes, and were brought low through their iniquity.
44
Nevertheless he regarded their distress, when he heard their cry.
45
He remembered for their sake his covenant, and relented according to the abundance of his steadfast love.
46
He caused them to be pitied by all those who held them captive.
47
Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the nations, that we may give thanks to thy holy name and glory in thy praise.
48
Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting! And let all the people say, "Amen!" Praise the LORD!
