The name Taberah derives from the Hebrew
ba`ar , burn. According to Numbers 11:1 - And the people were as murmurers,
speaking evil in the ears of the LORD; and when the LORD heard it, His anger
was kindled; and the fire of the LORD burnt among them, and devoured in the
uttermost part of the camp. 11:2 And the
people cried unto Moses; and Moses prayed unto the LORD, and the fire abated.
11:3 And the name of that place was
called Taberah, because the fire of the LORD
burnt among them.
