Numbers Chapter 21
21:1 And when king Arad the Canaanite, which dwelt in the south, heard
tell that Israel came by the way of the spies; then he fought against
Israel, and took some of them prisoners.
21:2 And Israel vowed a vow unto the LORD, and said, If thou wilt indeed
deliver this people into my hand, then I will utterly destroy their
21:3 And the LORD hearkened to the voice of Israel, and delivered up the
Canaanites; and they utterly destroyed them and their cities: and he
called the name of the place Hormah.
21:4 And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to
compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much
discouraged because of the way.
21:5 And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have
ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no
bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light
21:6 And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the
people; and much people of Israel died.
21:7 Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for
we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD,
that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people.
21:8 And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it
upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten,
when he looketh upon it, shall live.
21:9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it
came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the
serpent of brass, he lived.
21:10 And the children of Israel set forward, and pitched in Oboth.
21:11 And they journeyed from Oboth, and pitched at Ijeabarim, in the
wilderness which is before Moab, toward the sunrising.
21:12 From thence they removed, and pitched in the valley of Zared.
21:13 From thence they removed, and pitched on the other side of Arnon,
which is in the wilderness that cometh out of the coasts of the
Amorites: for Arnon is the border of Moab, between Moab and the
21:14 Wherefore it is said in the book of the wars of the LORD, What he
did in the Red sea, and in the brooks of Arnon,
21:15 And at the stream of the brooks that goeth down to the dwelling of
Ar, and lieth upon the border of Moab.
21:16 And from thence they went to Beer: that is the well whereof the
LORD spake unto Moses, Gather the people together, and I will give them
21:17 Then Israel sang this song, Spring up, O well; sing ye unto it:
21:18 The princes digged the well, the nobles of the people digged it,
by the direction of the lawgiver, with their staves. And from the
wilderness they went to Mattanah:
21:19 And from Mattanah to Nahaliel: and from Nahaliel to Bamoth:
21:20 And from Bamoth in the valley, that is in the country of Moab, to
the top of Pisgah, which looketh toward Jeshimon.
21:21 And Israel sent messengers unto Sihon king of the Amorites,
21:22 Let me pass through thy land: we will not turn into the fields, or
into the vineyards; we will not drink of the waters of the well: but we
will go along by the king's high way, until we be past thy borders.
21:23 And Sihon would not suffer Israel to pass through his border: but
Sihon gathered all his people together, and went out against Israel into
the wilderness: and he came to Jahaz, and fought against Israel.
21:24 And Israel smote him with the edge of the sword, and possessed his
land from Arnon unto Jabbok, even unto the children of Ammon: for the
border of the children of Ammon was strong.
21:25 And Israel took all these cities: and Israel dwelt in all the
cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all the villages thereof.
21:26 For Heshbon was the city of Sihon the king of the Amorites, who
had fought against the former king of Moab, and taken all his land out
of his hand, even unto Arnon.
21:27 Wherefore they that speak in proverbs say, Come into Heshbon, let
the city of Sihon be built and prepared:
21:28 For there is a fire gone out of Heshbon, a flame from the city of
Sihon: it hath consumed Ar of Moab, and the lords of the high places of
21:29 Woe to thee, Moab! thou art undone, O people of Chemosh: he hath
given his sons that escaped, and his daughters, into captivity unto
Sihon king of the Amorites.
21:30 We have shot at them; Heshbon is perished even unto Dibon, and we
have laid them waste even unto Nophah, which reacheth unto Medeba.
21:31 Thus Israel dwelt in the land of the Amorites.
21:32 And Moses sent to spy out Jaazer, and they took the villages
thereof, and drove out the Amorites that were there.
21:33 And they turned and went up by the way of Bashan: and Og the king
of Bashan went out against them, he, and all his people, to the battle
21:34 And the LORD said unto Moses, Fear him not: for I have delivered
him into thy hand, and all his people, and his land; and thou shalt do
to him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at
21:35 So they smote him, and his sons, and all his people, until there
was none left him alive: and they possessed his land.
Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
