Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:1 - In the first month the whole Israelite community arrived at the Desert of Zin, and they stayed at Kadesh. There Miriam died and was buried.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:2 - Now there was no water for the community, and the people gathered in opposition to Moses and Aaron.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:3 - They quarreled with Moses and said, “If only we had died when our brothers fell dead before the LORD!

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:4 - Why did you bring the LORD’s community into this wilderness, that we and our livestock should die here?

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:5 - Why did you bring us up out of Egypt to this terrible place? It has no grain or figs, grapevines or pomegranates. And there is no water to drink!”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:6 - Moses and Aaron went from the assembly to the entrance to the tent of meeting and fell facedown, and the glory of the LORD appeared to them.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:7 - The LORD said to Moses,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:8 - “Take the staff, and you and your brother Aaron gather the assembly together. Speak to that rock before their eyes and it will pour out its water. You will bring water out of the rock for the community so they and their livestock can drink.”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:9 - So Moses took the staff from the LORD’s presence, just as he commanded him.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:10 - He and Aaron gathered the assembly together in front of the rock and Moses said to them, “Listen, you rebels, must we bring you water out of this rock?”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:11 - Then Moses raised his arm and struck the rock twice with his staff. Water gushed out, and the community and their livestock drank.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:12 - But the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not trust in me enough to honor me as holy in the sight of the Israelites, you will not bring this community into the land I give them.”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:15 - Our ancestors went down into Egypt, and we lived there many years. The Egyptians mistreated us and our ancestors,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:16 - but when we cried out to the LORD, he heard our cry and sent an angel and brought us out of Egypt. “Now we are here at Kadesh, a town on the edge of your territory.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:17 - Please let us pass through your country. We will not go through any field or vineyard, or drink water from any well. We will travel along the King’s Highway and not turn to the right or to the left until we have passed through your territory.”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:18 - But Edom answered: “You may not pass through here; if you try, we will march out and attack you with the sword.”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 20:19 - The Israelites replied: “We will go along the main road, and if we or our livestock drink any of your water, we will pay for it. We only want to pass through on foot—nothing else.”
