Bamah bā´mə [key] [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.
