Masua (Hebrew: מַשּׂוּאָה‎‎, lit. Torch) is a moshav shitufi and Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Located in the Jordan Valley with an area of 6,000 dunams, it falls under the jurisdiction of Bik'at HaYarden Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 142.

The village was established in 1969 as a Nahal settlement, and was converted to a civilian moshav by a HaOved HaTzioni gar'in five years later.

The international community considers Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.[1]
