Unchecked Copy BoxNum 21:5 - And the people spoke against God and against Moses, "Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness, for there is no bread or water, and we detest this worthless food."

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 21:6 - So the LORD sent poisonous snakes among the people, and they bit the people; many people of Israel died.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 21:7 - Then the people came to Moses and said, "We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD and against you. Pray to the LORD that he would take away the snakes from us." So Moses prayed for the people.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 21:22 - "Let us pass through your land; we will not turn aside into the fields or into the vineyards, nor will we drink water from any well, but we will go along the King's Highway until we pass your borders."

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 21:23 - But Sihon did not permit Israel to pass through his border; he gathered all his forces together and went out against Israel into the wilderness. When he came to Jahaz, he fought against Israel.
