Unchecked Copy BoxNum 21:3 - And the LORD listened to the voice of Israel and delivered up the Canaanites, and they utterly destroyed them and their cities. So the name of that place was called Hormah.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 21:4 - Then they journeyed from Mount Hor by the Way of the Red Sea, to go around the land of Edom; and the soul of the people became very discouraged on the way.

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 food and no water, and our soul loathes this worthless bread.”

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

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 21:7 - Therefore 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 take away the serpents from us.” So Moses prayed for the people.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 21:8 - Then the LORD said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.”

And lies on the border of Moab.”

By the lawgiver, with their staves.”
And from the wilderness they went to Mattanah,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 21:20 - and from Bamoth, in the valley that is in the country of Moab, to the top of Pisgah which looks down on the wasteland.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 21:21 - Then Israel sent messengers to Sihon king of the Amorites, saying,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 21:22 - “Let me pass through your land. We will not turn aside into fields or vineyards; we will not drink water from wells. We will go by the King’s Highway until we have passed through your territory.”

“Come to Heshbon, let it be built;
Let the city of Sihon be repaired.

A flame from the city of Sihon;
It consumed Ar of Moab,
The lords of the heights of the Arnon.

And his daughters into captivity,
To Sihon king of the Amorites.

Heshbon has perished as far as Dibon.
