Headword: Ὕδωρ ἀντιλογίας
Adler number: upsilon,50
Translated headword: water of contradiction
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
The place took its name from the matter; for when they arrived at Merra [a.k.a. Marah] and they found the water bitter, they shouted against Moses and blabbed against God. It is saying: I [sc. God] refuted the ungrateful opinion with that water.
Greek Original:
Ὕδωρ ἀντιλογίας: ἀπὸ τοῦ πράγματος ὁ τόπος τὴν προσηγορίαν ἐδέξατο: εἰς Μερρὰν γὰρ ἔλθοντες καὶ πικρὸν εὑρόντες τὸ ὕδωρ κατὰ Μωσέως ἐβόησαν καὶ τοῦ θεοῦ κατελάλησαν. λέγει δέ, ὅτι διήλεγξά σου παρ' ἐκεῖνο τὸ ὕδωρ τὴν ἀχάριστον γνώμην.
Notes:
From Theodoret (PG 80, 1524a) on Psalm 80.8 LXX.
For the context see Exodus 15.23 ('When they came to Marah they could not drink from Marah, for it was bitter; therefore the name of that place was called Pikria'); also Deuteronomy 32.51 and 33.8, and Psalm 105.32 LXX.
