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.
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.
