Oboth (Hebrew: אֹבֹת) is one of the places the Israelites stopped at during the Exodus.[1] Its name may mean bottles.



  1. [Hebrew: 'obot--the Greek eggastrimuthoi...Michaelis (Suppl., p. 39.) gives a different meaning and etymology to [Hebrew: 'obot]. He derives it from the Arabic, which signifies (1) _rediit_, (2) _occidit_ sol, (3) _noctu venit_ or _noctu aliquid fecit_. The first and third of these meanings will make it applicable to the [Greek: nekromanteia] (of which the witch of Endor was a practitioner), which was carried on at night. See Hor._Sat._ I. ix.
