20:22 So the entire company of Israelites39 traveled from Kadesh and came to Mount Hor.40 20:23 And the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron in Mount Hor, by the border of the land of Edom. He said: 20:24 “Aaron will be gathered to his ancestors,41 for he will not enter into the land I have given to the Israelites because both of you42 rebelled against my word43 at the waters of Meribah. 20:25 Take Aaron and Eleazar his son, and bring them up on Mount Hor. 20:26 Remove Aaron’s priestly garments44 and put them on Eleazar his son, and Aaron will be gathered to his ancestors45 and will die there.”
20:27 So Moses did as the Lord commanded; and they went up Mount Hor in the sight46 of the whole community. 20:28 And Moses removed Aaron’s garments and put them on his son Eleazar. So Aaron died there on the top of the mountain. And Moses and Eleazar came down from the mountain. 20:29 When all the community saw that Aaron was dead, the whole house of Israel mourned for Aaron thirty days.
