18 And Edom said unto him, Thou shalt not pass by me, lest I come out against thee with the (word.

19 And the children of Israel said unto him, We will go by the high-way: 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.

10 And he said, Thou shalt not go through. And Edom came out against him with much people, and with a strong hand.

a i Thus Edom refused to give Israel passage through his border: wherefore Israel turned away from him.

22 ^ And die children ot 'Israel, even the whole congregation, journeyed from Kadesh, and came unto mount Hor.

13 And die Loud spake unto Moses and Aaron in mount Hor, by the coast of the land of Edom, saying,

24 Aaron shall be gathered unto his people: for he (hull not enter into the land which I have given unto the children of Israel, because ye rebelled against my word at the water osMeribah.

4 ^ And they journeyed from moint Hor, by the way of the Red sea, tocompass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discauraged because of the way.

J And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of E^ypt, to die in the wilderness ? for there it no bread, neither ii there any water, and our foul loatheth this light bread.

6 And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people j and they bit the people, andmuch people of Israel died.

7 % Therefore the peeple came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee ; pray" unto the Lord that he takeaway the serpents from us: and Moses prayed for the people.

8 And the Lord said unto Mods, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it u'

t upon a pole : and ir shall come to pass,

that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.

9 And Moses made aferpenrof brass, and pur it upon a pole, and it camera pass, diat if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

10 f And the children of Israel set forward, and pitched in Oboth.

11 And they journeyed from Oboth, and pitched at Ije-abarim. in the wilderness which is before Moab, toward the fun-rising.

12 f From thence they removed, and pitched in the valley of Zared.

13 From thence they removed, and pitched on the other side of Arnon, which is in the wilderness that comedi out of the coasts of the Amorites: so' Arnon U the border of Moab, between Moab and the Amorites.

14 Wherefore it is laid in rhe book of the wars of the Lord, What he did in the Red sca,and in the brooks of Arnon,

15 And at the stream of the brooks that goeth down to the dwelling of Ar, and lieth upon the border of Moab.

16 And from thence they -went to Beer: that is the well whereof the Lord spake unto Moses, Gather rhe people together, and I will give them water.

17 1 Then Israel sang this song, Spring up, O well, sing ye unto it:

18 The princes digged the well, die nobles

19 And from Mattanah to Nahaliel: and from Nahaliel to Bamoth

10 And from Bamoth in the valley that li» in the country of Moab, to the top of Pissah, which looketh toward Jeshimon.

11 T And Israel sent messengers unto Sihon king of the Amorites, saying,

11 Let me pass through thy land; we will not turn into rhe fields, or into the vineyards, we will not drink of rhe waters of the well: but we will go along by the kings Ai?A-way, until we be past ti.y borders.

15 And Sihon would not suffer Israel to pass through his border: but Sihon gathered all his people together, and went out against Israel into the wilderness : and he came to ]abaz, and fought against Israel.

14 And Israel smote him with the edge of the sword, and possessed his land from Arnon unto Jabbok, even untothechildren of Ammon: for the botder of die childten of Ammon was strong.

15 And Israel took all d«se cities: and Israel dwelt in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all che villages thereof.

16 For Heshbon was the city os Sihon the king of the Amorites, who had (ougheagainst che former king of Moab, and taken all his land out of his hand, even unto Arnon.

17 Wherefore they that speak in proverbs, fay, Come into Heshbon, let the city of Sihon be built and prepared.

28 For there is a fi re gone out ofHesh bon, a flame from the city of Sihon: it hath consumed Ar ot Moab, and the lords of the high places of Arnon.

30 We have shot at them; Heshbon is perished even unto Dibon, and we have laid them waste even unto Nophan, which reacheth untoMedeba.
