The whole Israelite community set out from Kadesh1 and came to Mount Hor.223
At Mount Hor, near the border of Edom,3 the LORD said to Moses and Aaron,
"Aaron will be gathered to his people.4 He will not enter the land I give the Israelites, because both of you rebelled against my command5 at the waters of Meribah.625
Get Aaron and his son Eleazar and take them up Mount Hor.726
Remove Aaron's garments8 and put them on his son Eleazar, for Aaron will be gathered to his people;9 he will die there."
Moses did as the LORD commanded: They went up Mount Hor10 in the sight of the whole community.
Moses removed Aaron's garments and put them on his son Eleazar.11 And Aaron died there12 on top of the mountain. Then Moses and Eleazar came down from the mountain,
and when the whole community learned that Aaron had died,13 the entire house of Israel mourned for him14 thirty days.
