Numbers Chapter 20
20:1 Then came the children of Israel, even the whole
congregation, into the desert of Zin in the first month: and the people
abode in Kadesh; and Miriam died there, and was buried there.
20:2 And there was no water for the congregation: and they gathered
themselves together against Moses and against Aaron.
20:3 And the people chode with Moses, and spake, saying, Would God that we
had died when our brethren died before the LORD!
20:4 And why have ye brought up the congregation of the LORD into this
wilderness, that we and our cattle should die there?
20:5 And wherefore have ye made us to come up out of Egypt, to bring us in
unto this evil place? it is no place of seed, or of figs, or of vines, or of
pomegranates; neither is there any water to drink.
20:6 And Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly unto the
door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they fell upon their faces:
and the glory of the LORD appeared unto them.
20:7 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
20:8 Take the rod, and gather thou the assembly together, thou, and Aaron
thy brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes; and it shall give
forth his water, and thou shalt bring forth to them water out of the rock:
so thou shalt give the congregation and their beasts drink.
20:9 And Moses took the rod from before the LORD, as he commanded him.
20:10 And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the
rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you water
out of this rock?
20:11 And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock
twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and
their beasts also.
20:12 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me not,
to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not
bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.
20:13 This is the water of Meribah; because the children of Israel strove
with the LORD, and he was sanctified in them.
20:14 And Moses sent messengers from Kadesh unto the king of Edom, Thus
saith thy brother Israel, Thou knowest all the travail that hath befallen
20:15 How our fathers went down into Egypt, and we have dwelt in Egypt a
long time; and the Egyptians vexed us, and our fathers:
20:16 And when we cried unto the LORD, he heard our voice, and sent an
angel, and hath brought us forth out of Egypt: and, behold, we are in Kadesh,
a city in the uttermost of thy border:
20:17 Let 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.
20:18 And Edom said unto him, Thou shalt not pass by me, lest I come out
against thee with the sword.
20:19 And 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 anything else, go through on my feet.
20:20 And he said, Thou shalt not go through. And Edom came out against him
with much people, and with a strong hand.
20:21 Thus Edom refused to give Israel passage through his border: wherefore
Israel turned away from him.
20:22 And the children of Israel, even the whole congregation, journeyed
from Kadesh, and came unto mount Hor.
20:23 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in mount Hor, by the coast of
the land of Edom, saying,
20:24 Aaron shall be gathered unto his people: for he shall not enter into
the land which I have given unto the children of Israel, because ye rebelled
against my word at the water of Meribah.
20:25 Take Aaron and Eleazar his son, and bring them up unto mount Hor:
20:26 And strip Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar his son:
and Aaron shall be gathered unto his people, and shall die there.
20:27 And Moses did as the LORD commanded: and they went up into mount Hor
in the sight of all the congregation.
20:28 And Moses stripped Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar
his son; and Aaron died there in the top of the mount: and Moses and Eleazar
came down from the mount.
20:29 And when all the congregation saw that Aaron was dead, they mourned
for Aaron thirty days, even all the house of Israel.
Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
