The Meaning of Mizpah

The Story Of Us

Like my grandmother and mother before me, when it came time to think about what Musa and I wanted to engrave into our wedding bands, one word came to mind, Mizpah. The word Mizpah comes from the Old Testament in the Bible. It is an old Hebrew word that means “Lord watch over me.” It’s marked as an agreement between two people, with God as their witness, for God to watch over them when they are absent from one another.

“And Mizpah; for he said, The Lord watch between me and thee, when we are absent one from another.” Genesis 31:49

This word was perfect for us, so Musa and I decided to continue my family love legacy to engrave Mizpah into our wedding bands. We love what Mizpah stood for so much, that we also got white ink tattoos on our left wrist with the word inscribed. Therefore, no matter what we are doing in this world, we will always be reminded of our love and commitment that we made on our wedding day.
