Numbers 20


20:1 Then came the children of Israel, [even] the whole
 congregation, into the desert of Zin in the first month; and
 the people abode in Kadesh; and Miriam died there, and was
 buried there.
20:2 And there was no water for the congregation: and they
 assembled themselves against Moses and against Aaron.
20:3 And the people chid with Moses, and spoke, saying, O that
 we had died when our brethren died before the LORD!
20:4 And why have ye brought the congregation of the LORD into
 this wilderness, that we and our cattle should die there?
20:5 And why have ye conducted us from Egypt, to bring us to
 this evil place? it [is] no place of seed, or of figs, or of
 vines, or of pomegranates; neither [is] there any water to
 drink.
20:6 And Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly
 to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they
 fell upon their faces: and the glory of the LORD appeared to
 them.
20:7 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
20:8 Take the rod, and convene thou the assembly, thou, and
 Aaron thy brother, and speak ye to the rock before their eyes;
 and it shall give forth its water, and thou shalt bring forth
 to them water out of the rock: so thou shalt give drink to the
 congregation and their beasts.
20:9 And Moses took the rod from before the LORD, as he
 commanded him.
20:10 And Moses and Aaron assembled the congregation before the
 rock, and he said to them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch
 you water out of this rock?
20:11 And Moses lifted his hand, and with his rod he smote the
 rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the
 congregation drank, and their beasts [also].
20:12 And the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed
 me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel,
 therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land
 which I have given them.
20:13 This [is] the water of Meribah; because the children of
 Israel strove with the LORD, and he was sanctified in them.
20:14 And Moses sent messengers from Kadesh to the king of Edom,
 Thus saith thy brother Israel, Thou knowest all the travail
 that hath befallen us:
20:15 How our fathers went down into Egypt, and we have dwelt in
 Egypt a long time; and the Egyptians afflicted us, and our
 fathers:
20:16 And when we cried to the LORD, he heard our voice, and
 sent an angel, and hath brought us forth from Egypt: and
 behold, we [are] in Kadesh, a city in the uttermost of thy
 border:
20:17 Let us pass, I pray thee, through thy country: we will not
 pass through the fields, or through the vineyards, neither will
 we drink [of] the water of the wells: we will go by the king's
 [high]-way, we will not turn to the right hand nor to the left,
 until we have passed thy borders.
20:18 And Edom said to him, Thou shalt not pass by me, lest I
 come out against thee with the sword.
20:19 And the children of Israel said to him, We will go by the
 highway: and if I and my cattle drink of thy water, then I will
 pay for it: I will only, without [doing] any thing [else], go
 through on my feet.
20:20 And he said, Thou shalt not go through. And Edom came out
 against him with many people, and with a strong hand.
20:21 Thus Edom refused to give Israel passage through his
 border: wherefore Israel turned away from him.
20:22 And the children of Israel, [even] the whole congregation,
 journeyed from Kadesh, and came to mount Hor.
20:23 And the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron in mount Hor, by the
 coast of the land of Edom, saying,
20:24 Aaron shall be gathered to his people: for he shall not
 enter into the land which I have given to the children of
 Israel, because ye rebelled against my word at the water of
 Meribah.
20:25 Take Aaron and Eleazar his son, and bring them up to mount
 Hor:
20:26 And strip Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar
 his son: and Aaron shall be gathered [to his people], and shall
 die there.
20:27 And Moses did as the LORD commanded: and they ascended
 mount Hor in the sight of all the congregation.
20:28 And Moses stripped Aaron of his garments, and put them
 upon Eleazar his son; and Aaron died there on the top of the
 mount: and Moses and Eleazar came down from the mount.
20:29 And when all the congregation saw that Aaron was dead,
 they mourned for Aaron thirty days, [even] all the house of
 Israel.
