Ezekiel 20:29; "What is the high place whereunto ye hie habaim, alliteration to Bamah? And the name thereof is called. Bamah (i.e. "high place", akin to the Greek pagan bomos) unto this day." The very name implies the place is not sanctioned by ME; (God); it implies its own paganness: My place is called mizbeach, "altar." Your sacrifices even to ME on a "high place" instead of My "altar" in the temple, were therefore a "provocation," Ezekiel 20:28 (Deuteronomy 12:1-5)
