He and Aaron gathered the assembly together1 in front of the rock and Moses said to them, "Listen, you rebels, must we bring you water out of this rock?"211
Then Moses raised his arm and struck the rock twice with his staff. Water3 gushed out, and the community and their livestock drank.
But the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "Because you did not trust in me enough to honor me as holy4 in the sight of the Israelites, you will not bring this community into the land I give them."513
These were the waters of Meribah,a6 where the Israelites quarreled7 with the LORD and where he showed himself holy among them.8
