"But know that the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for himself:
the Lord will hear when I call unto him."
Psalms 4:3

The term "mesa" is used throughout the United States to describe a  flat-topped mountain or hill.  Is is a physical place that is "set apart" from and higher than the surrounding area. A mesa ( Spanish and Portuguese for "table") or table mountain is an elevated area of land with a flat top and sides that are usually steep cliffs. It takes its name from its characteristic table-top shape.  The largest mesa in the world is considered to be the Grand Mesa  located in western Colorado near Montrose.
