Moses! More wood!

Marah? Wood? Sweeteners? What’s going on here? If you don’t have an encyclopedic knowledge of the Old Testament then here is some back story from Exodus 15: 22-25 – ‘Then Moses led Israel from the Red Sea and they went into the Desert of Shur. For three days they traveled in the desert without finding water. When they came to Marah, they could not drink its water because it was bitter. So the people grumbled against Moses, saying, “What are we to drink?”  Then Moses cried out to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a piece of wood. He threw it into the water, and the water became sweet.’
