Death of Miriam

1 Then the sons of Israel, the whole congregation, came to the wilderness R579 of Zin in the first month; and the people stayed at Kadesh. Now Miriam died there and was buried there.

2 There R580 was no water for the congregation, and R581 they assembled themselves against Moses and Aaron. 3 The R582 people thus contended with Moses and spoke, saying, "If R583 only we had perished when R584 our brothers perished before the LORD! 4 "Why R585 then have you brought the LORD'S assembly into this wilderness, for us and our beasts to die here? F292 5 "Why have you made us come up from Egypt, to bring us in to this wretched place? It R586 is not a place of grain F293 or figs or vines or pomegranates, nor is there water to drink." 6 Then Moses and Aaron came in from the presence of the assembly to the doorway of the tent of meeting and fell R587 on their faces. Then the glory of the LORD appeared to them; 7 and the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

The Water of Meribah

8 "Take the R588 rod; and you and your brother Aaron assemble the congregation and speak to the rock before their eyes, that it may yield its water. You shall thus bring forth water for them out of the rock and let the congregation and their beasts drink."

9 So Moses took the rod from R589 before the LORD, just as He had commanded him; 10 and Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly before the rock. And he said to them, "Listen R590 now, you rebels; shall we bring forth water for you out of this rock?" 11 Then Moses lifted up his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water R591 came forth abundantly, and the congregation and their beasts drank. 12 But the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "Because R592 you have not believed Me, to treat Me as holy in the sight of the sons of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them." 13 Those were the waters of Meribah, R593 F294 because F295 the sons of Israel contended with the LORD, and He proved Himself holy among them.

14 From Kadesh Moses then sent messengers to the R594 king of Edom: "Thus your brother Israel has said, `You know R595 all the hardship that has befallen us; 15 that our fathers went down to Egypt, and we stayed in Egypt a long time, and the Egyptians treated us and our fathers badly. 16 `But when R596 we cried out to the LORD, He heard our voice and sent an R597 angel and brought us out from Egypt; now behold, we are at Kadesh, a town on the edge of your territory. 17 `Please let R598 us pass through your land. We will not pass through field or through vineyard; we will not even drink water from a well. We will go along the king's highway, not turning to the right or left, until we pass through your territory.' "

18 Edom, R599 however, said to him, "You shall not pass through us, F296 or I will come out with the sword against you." 19 Again, the sons of Israel said to him, "We will go up by the highway, and if I and my R600 livestock do drink any of your water, then R601 I will pay F297 its price. Let me only pass through on my feet, nothing F298 else." 20 But he said, "You R602 shall not pass through." And Edom came out against him with a heavy force F299 and with a strong hand. 21 Thus R603 Edom refused to allow Israel to pass through his territory; so R604 Israel turned away from him.

22 Now when they set out from Kadesh, R605 the sons of Israel, the whole congregation, came to Mount Hor.

Death of Aaron

23 Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron at Mount R606 Hor by the border of the land of Edom, saying, 24 "Aaron will be gathered R607 to his people; for he shall not enter the land which I have given to the sons of Israel, because you R608 rebelled against My command F300 at the waters of Meribah. 25 "Take Aaron and his son Eleazar R609 and bring them up to Mount Hor; 26 and strip Aaron of his garments and put them on his son Eleazar. So Aaron will be gathered R610 to his people, and will die there." 27 So Moses did just as the LORD had commanded, and they went up to Mount Hor in the sight of all the congregation. 28 After Moses had stripped Aaron of his garments and put R611 them on his son Eleazar, Aaron R612 died there on the mountain top. Then Moses and Eleazar came down from the mountain. 29 When all the congregation saw that Aaron had died, all the house of Israel wept for Aaron thirty days. R613
