Massa (Hebrew: משא, Massāʻ; "Name means::burden") was the seventh of the twelve sons of son of::Ishmael, first mentioned in Genesis 25:14.


Massa settled in northern Arabia. They were called the Masa, who, along with Tema, paid tribute to Tigleth-Pileser III. Ptolemy located the Masanoi tribe north-east of Dumah, in Arabia and an Assyrian text mentions a tribe known as Mas'a side by side with Tema. Josephus records their name as the Mesanaeans, and in his day their lands were known to the Romans as Charax Spasini.
