Marah

Additional Links

One of the early stations of the Israelites, so called because the waters there were bitter, but which were made sweet by casting in a tree. Exodus 15:23 ; Numbers 33:8,9 . It is typical of the Christian's acceptance of death (Romans 6:11 ; John 6:53 , etc.), in order to live unto God. It is the love of Christ, expressed in His going into death to make a way out for us, that sweetens the bitterness.
