|Nu 20:1||The children of Israel come to Zin, where Miriam dies. |
ZIN, WILDERNESS OF
¶ Then came the children of Israel, even the whole congregation, into2 the desert of Zin in the first month: and the people abode in Kadesh3; and Miriam4 died there, and was buried there.
|Nu 20:2||They murmur for want of water. |
And there was no5 water for the congregation: and they gathered6 themselves together against Moses and against Aaron.
And the people chode with Moses, and spake, saying, Would God7 that we had died when8 our brethren died before the LORD!
And why9 have ye brought up the congregation of the LORD into this wilderness, that we10 and our cattle should die there?
And wherefore have ye made us to come up out of Egypt, to bring us in unto this evil11 place? it is no place of12 seed, or of figs, or of vines, or of pomegranates; neither is there any water to drink.
And Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they fell13 upon their faces: and the glory14 of the LORD appeared unto them.
|Nu 20:7||Moses smiting the rock, brings forth water at Meribah. |
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Take the rod15, and gather thou the assembly together, thou, and Aaron thy brother, and speak16 ye unto the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water, and thou shalt bring forth17 to them water out of the rock: so thou shalt give the congregation and their beasts drink.
18And Moses took the rod from before the LORD, as he commanded him.
¶19And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch20 you water out of this rock?
ROCK, WATER BROUGHT FROM
And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote21 the rock twice: and the water22 came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also.
And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed23 me not, to sanctify24 me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall25 not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.
This is the water26 of Meribah27; because the children of Israel strove with the LORD, and he was sanctified in them.
|Nu 20:14||Moses at Kadesh desires passage through Edom, which is denied him. |
¶ And Moses29 sent messengers from Kadesh unto the king of Edom, Thus saith thy brother30 Israel, Thou knowest all the travail that hath befallen us31:
How our fathers32 went down into Egypt, and we have dwelt33 in Egypt a long time; and the Egyptians vexed us,34 and our fathers:
And when we cried35 unto the LORD, he heard our voice, and sent an36 angel, and hath brought us forth out of Egypt: and, behold, we are in Kadesh, a city in the uttermost of thy border:
37Let us pass, I pray thee, through thy country: we will not pass through the fields, or through the vineyards, neither will we drink of the water of the wells: we will go by the king's high way, we will not turn to the right hand nor to the left, until we have passed thy borders.
And Edom said unto him, Thou shalt not pass by me, lest I come out against thee with the sword.
38And the children of Israel said unto him, We will go by the high way: and if I and my cattle drink of thy water, then I will pay for it: I will only, without doing any thing else, go through on my feet.
¶ And he said, Thou shalt39 not go through. And Edom40 came out against him with much people, and with a strong hand.
Thus Edom refused41 to give Israel passage through his border: wherefore42 Israel turned away from him.
|Nu 20:22||At mount Hor Aaron resigns his place to Eleazar, and dies. |
MOUNTAINS AND HILLS
Mount Hor 1
¶ And the children of Israel, even the whole congregation, journeyed from Kadesh43, and came unto mount Hor44.
Mount Hor 1
And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in mount Hor, by the coast of the land of Edom, saying,
Aaron shall be gathered45 unto his people: for he shall not enter into the land which I have given unto the children of Israel, because ye46 rebelled against my word47 at the water of Meribah.
Mount Hor 1
48Take Aaron and Eleazar his son, and bring them up unto mount Hor:
49And strip Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar his son: and Aaron shall be gathered unto his people, and shall die there.
Mount Hor 1
And Moses did as the LORD commanded: and they went up into mount Hor in the sight of all the congregation.
And Moses50 stripped Aaron of his garments, and put them51 upon Eleazar his son; and Aaron died there52 in the top of the mount: and Moses and Eleazar came down from the mount.
53And when all the congregation saw that Aaron was dead, they mourned for Aaron thirty days, even all the house of Israel.
