mā´ra , mar´a ( מרה , mārāh , "bitter"): The first camp of the Israelites after the passage of the Red Sea ( Exodus 15:23 ; Numbers 33:8 f). The name is derived from the bitterness of the brackish water. Moses cast a tree into the waters which were thus made sweet ( Exodus 15:23 ). See WANDERINGS OF ISRAEL .
