The word Meribah means “quarrel or strife”.
Are you quarreling with the Lord?
Do you, like Moses (whose name means “out of water”), persist in unbelief?
Will you strike the Rock a second time? Or was the first time sufficient?
Are you satisfied by the manna and the water from Meribah? Or do you grumble and persist in unbelief?
Are you thirsty?
Then hear his voice and believe.
“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.”
