The whole Israelite community set out from Kadesh and came to Mount Hor. (Numbers 20:22)

At Mount Hor, near the border of Edom, the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, (Numbers 20:23)

"Aaron will be gathered to his people. He will not enter the land I give the Israelites, because both of you rebelled against my command at the waters of Meribah. (Numbers 20:24)

Get Aaron and his son Eleazar and take them up Mount Hor. (Numbers 20:25)

Remove Aaron's garments and put them on his son Eleazar, for Aaron will be gathered to his people; he will die there." (Numbers 20:26)

Moses did as the LORD commanded: They went up Mount Hor in the sight of the whole community. (Numbers 20:27)

Moses removed Aaron's garments and put them on his son Eleazar. And Aaron died there on top of the mountain. Then Moses and Eleazar came down from the mountain, (Numbers 20:28)

and when the whole community learned that Aaron had died, the entire house of Israel mourned for him thirty days. (Numbers 20:29)
