Easton's Bible Dictionary

Bamah:

a height, a name used simply to denote a high place where the Jews worshipped idols (Eze 20:29). The plural is translated "high places" in Num 22:41 and Eze 36:2.

Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary

Bamah:

an eminence or high place

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Bamah:

ba'-ma, ba'-ma (bamah, "high place"): The word appears in Eze 20:29 where reference is made to former "high-place worship," the prophet speaking with contempt of such manner of worship. Ewald suggests a play of words, ba'," come" and mah, "what," "what (mah) is the high place (ba-mah) whereunto ye come (ba')?" It is possible that reference is made to a prominent high place like the one at Gibeon (compare 1Ki 3:4; 1Ch 16:39; 21:29; 2Ch 13) for which the name "Bamah" was retained after the reform mentioned by the prophet.

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Bamah:

(high place). Found only in Ezekiel 20:29, applied to places of idolatrous worship.
