Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:17 - ‘Please let us pass through your land. We will not pass through field or vineyard; we will not even drink water from a well. We will go along the king’s road, not turning to the right or left, until we pass through your territory.’”
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:18 - Edom, however, said to him, “You shall not pass through [fn]us, or I will come out with the sword against you.”
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:19 - Again, the sons of Israel said to him, “We will go up by the road, and if I and my livestock do drink any of your water, then I will [fn]pay its price. Let me only pass through on my feet, [fn]nothing more.
