    The provocation in the wilderness spoken of in Hebrews 3/Psalm 95
    is in reference to the Massah and Meribah incident.

    Exodus 17:

    1 Then all the congregation of the children of Israel set out on their journey from the Wilderness of Sin, according to the commandment of the Lord,
    and camped in Rephidim; but there was no water for the people to drink.
    2 Therefore the people contended with Moses, and said, Give us water, that we may drink. So Moses said to them, “Why do you contend with me?
    Why do you tempt the Lord?”
    3 And the people thirsted there for water, and the people complained against Moses, and said, Why is it you have brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children
    and our livestock with thirst?”
    4 So Moses cried out to the Lord, saying, “What shall I do with this people? They are almost ready to stone me!”
    5 And the Lord said to Moses, “Go on before the people, and take with you some of the elders of Israel. Also take in your hand your rod with which you struck the river, and go.
    6 Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock in Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink.
    And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.
    7 So he called the name of the place Massah and Meribah, because of
    the contention
    of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the Lord, saying,
    Is the Lord among us or not?

    This incident is significant for the revelation that Christ was with
    the congregation in the wilderness.

    1 Corinthians 10:
    3 all ate the same spiritual food,
    4 and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock
    that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.

    This was before the revelation on Sinai and the giving of the Ten Commandments.
    Deuteronomy 32:4. He is the Rock, His work is perfect;
    For all His ways are justice,
    A God of truth and without injustice;
    Righteous and upright is He.
