33 Here are the places where the people of Israel stopped during their journey. When they came out of Egypt, they marched in companies like an army. Moses and Aaron led them. 2The Lord commanded Moses to record their journey. Here are the places where they stopped.
3The people of Israel started out from Rameses. It was the 15th day of the first month. It was the day after the Passover Feast. They marched out boldly in plain sight of all of the Egyptians. 4The Egyptians were burying all of their oldest sons. The Lord had struck them down. He had done it when he punished their gods.
38The priest Aaron went up Mount Hor when the Lord commanded him to. That’s where he died. It happened on the first day of the fifth month. It was the 40th year after the people of Israel came out of Egypt. 39Aaron was 123 years old when he died on Mount Hor.
48They left the mountain range of Abarim and camped on the flatlands of Moab. They were by the Jordan River across from Jericho. 49They camped there along the Jordan River from Beth Jeshimoth to Abel Shittim.
50On the flatlands of Moab the Lord spoke to Moses. He spoke to him by the Jordan River across from Jericho. The Lord said, 51“Speak to the people of Israel. Tell them, ‘Go across the Jordan River into Canaan. 52Drive out all those who are living in the land. The statues of their gods are made out of stone and metal. Destroy all of those statues. And destroy all of the high places where they are worshiped.
53“ ‘Take the land as your own. Settle down in it. I have given it to you. 54Use lots when you give out the land. Do it based on the number of men who are in each tribe and family. Give a larger share to a larger group. And give a smaller group a smaller share. The share they receive by using lots will belong to them. Give out the shares based on the number of men in Israel’s tribes.
55“ ‘But suppose you do not drive out the people who are living in the land. Then those you allow to remain there will become like needles in your eyes. They will become like thorns in your sides. They will give you trouble in the land where you will live. 56Then I will do to you what I plan to do to them.’ ”
