Numbers 20
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And the children of Israel came, the entire assembly to the wilderness of Tsin, in the first month, and the people stayed in Rakem, and Maryam died there and she was buried there.

2And there was no water for the people to drink and the people assembled against Moshe and against Ahron. 3And the people contended with Moshe and they said to him: “Oh that we had died in the plague of our brethren before LORD JEHOVAH! 4Why have you brought the assembly of LORD JEHOVAH to this wilderness that we should die here, we and our animals? 5And why have you brought us out from Egypt and you have brought us into this evil place, not a place to sow seed, neither of vines or figs or pomegranates, neither water to drink.” 6And Moshe and Ahron came from before the assembly to the door of the Time Tabernacle and they fell upon their faces and the glory of LORD JEHOVAH was revealed upon them. 7And LORD JEHOVAH spoke with Moshe and said to him:

8“Take for yourself the rod and assemble the assembly, you and Ahron your brother, and speak over the rock in their sight, and it shall give its water, and bring out water to them from the rock and give drink to the assembly and to their animals.”

9And Moshe took the rod from before LORD JEHOVAH as He commanded him. 10And Moshe gathered, and Ahron, the entire assembly to the rock and he said to them: “Hear now, rebels; from this rock we will bring water out to you.” 11And Moshe lifted his hand and he struck the rock with his rod two times and many waters went out and all the people drank and their cattle. 12And LORD JEHOVAH said to Moshe and to Ahron: “Because you did not believe in me for my sanctification before the children of Israel, because of this you shall not bring in this assembly to the land which I have given to them.” 13These are the waters d'Metsutha“Of contention”, for the children of Israel contended before LORD JEHOVAH and he was sanctified among them.

14And Moshe sent Messengers from Raqem to the King of Adum: “Thus says your brother Israel: ‘You know all the trouble that has come upon us. 15And our fathers went down to Egypt and we dwelt in Egypt for many days and the Egyptians did evil to us and to our fathers. 16And we were praying before LORD JEHOVAH and he heard our voice and he sent an Angel and he brought us from Egypt, and behold, we are in Raqem, a town at the edge of your border. 17Now we will pass through your land; we will not pass in a field or in a vineyard and we will not drink water of the wells, but let us go in the road of the King and we will not turn aside, not to the right neither to the left, until we pass by your border.’”

18And Adum said to him: “You shall not pass through my border lest I come out to meet you with a sword.” 19And the children of Israel said to him: “We will go up by the road, and if we will drink from your waters, we and our animals, we will give their price, only on our feet let us pass.” 20And Adum said, “You shall not pass through”, and Adum came out to meet them with a strong people and with a mighty hand. 21And Adum did not want to allow the children of Israel to pass through his border and Israel departed from him.

22And they picked up from Raqem and the children of Israel, all of the assembly, came to Hor Mountain.

23And LORD JEHOVAH said to Moshe and to Ahron at Hor Mountain at the border of the land of Adum: 24“Ahron shall be gathered to his people because he shall not enter the land that I have given to the children of Israel, because you provoked the Word of my mouth by the water of contention and you did not sanctify me by the water in their sight. 25Take Ahron and Eliazar his son and bring them up to Hor Mountain. 26And strip Ahron of his garments and put them on Eliazer his son and Ahron shall be gathered and he shall die there.” 27And Moshe did as LORD JEHOVAH ordered him and they went up to Hor Mountain before the eyes of the whole assembly. 28And Moshe stripped Ahron of his garments and he put them on Eliazer his son; and Ahron died there on Hor Mountain and Moshe and Eliazar came down from the mountain. 29And all of the assembly saw that Ahron was dead, and all of the house of Israel wept for Ahron thirty days.
