17 ‘Please alet 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.’ ”
19 Again, the sons of Israel said to him, “We will go up by the highway, and if I and amy livestock do drink any of your water, bthen I will 1pay its price. Let me only pass through on my feet, 2nothing else.”
22 Now when they set out from aKadesh, the sons of Israel, the whole congregation, came to Mount Hor.
23 Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron at aMount Hor by the border of the land of Edom, saying,
25 “Take Aaron and his son aEleazar 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 agathered to his people, and will die there.”
29 When all the congregation saw that Aaron had died, all the house of Israel wept for Aaron thirty adays.
7 aSo the people came to Moses and said, “We have sinned, because we have spoken against the Lord and you; bintercede with the Lord, that He may remove the serpents from us.” And Moses interceded for the people.
9 And Moses made a abronze serpent and set it on the standard; and it came about, that if a serpent bit any man, when he looked to the bronze serpent, he lived.
10 aNow the sons of Israel moved out and camped in Oboth.
11 They journeyed from Oboth and camped at Iyeabarim, in the wilderness which is opposite Moab, to the 1east.
13 From there they journeyed and camped on the other side of the Arnon, which is in the wilderness that comes out of the border of the Amorites, afor the Arnon is the border of Moab, between Moab and the Amorites.
“Waheb in Suphah,
And the wadis of the Arnon,
That extends to the site of aAr,
And leans to the border of Moab.”
17 aThen Israel sang this song:
“Spring up, O well! Sing to it!
Which the nobles of the people dug,
With the scepter and with their staffs.”
And from the wilderness they continued to Mattanah,
20 and from Bamoth to the valley that is in the land of Moab, at the top of Pisgah which overlooks the 1wasteland.
21 aThen Israel sent messengers to Sihon, king of the Amorites, saying,
22 “aLet me pass through your land. We will not turn off into field or vineyard; we will not drink water from wells. We will go by the king’s highway until we have passed through your border.”
“Come to Heshbon! Let it be built!
So let the city of Sihon be established.
28 “aFor a fire went forth from Heshbon,
A flame from the town of Sihon;
It devoured bAr of Moab,
29 “aWoe to you, O Moab!
You are ruined, O people of bChemosh!
cHe has given his sons as fugitives,
dAnd his daughters into captivity,
To an Amorite king, Sihon.
Heshbon is ruined as far as aDibon,
Then we have laid waste even to Nophah,
Which reaches to Medeba.”
32 Moses sent to spy out aJazer, and they captured its villages and dispossessed the Amorites who were there.
34 But the Lord said to Moses, “aDo not fear him, for I have given him into your hand, and all his people and his land; and you shall do to him as you did to Sihon, king of the Amorites, who lived at Heshbon.”
1 aThen the sons of Israel journeyed, and camped in the plains of Moab beyond the Jordan opposite Jericho.
