Numbers 20:13

Context

20:13 These are the waters of Meribah, because the Israelites contended with the Lord, and his holiness was maintained 1  among them.

1 tn The form is unusual – it is the Niphal preterite, and not the normal use of the Piel/Pual stem for “sanctify/sanctified.” The basic idea of “he was holy” has to be the main idea, but in this context it refers to the fact that through judging Moses God was making sure people ensured his holiness among them. The word also forms a wordplay on the name Kadesh.
