A miraculous feature in the scene, described in Exodus 3, where Jehovah appears to Moses at the foot of Mount Horeb in a bush which is “on fire” and yet is “not burnt.” The commission, given to Moses on this occasion, marks the beginning of the formation of the national life of the Chosen People. The kind of bush is not identified; tradition regards it as the bramble or blackberry bush.
