These are the stages of the people of Israel, when they went out of the land of Egypt by their companies under the leadership of Moses and Aaron.
Moses wrote down their starting places, 1stage by stage, by command of the LORD, and these are their stages according to their starting places.
They 2set out from Rameses in 3the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month. On the day after the Passover, the people of Israel went out 4triumphantly in the sight of all the Egyptians,
while the Egyptians were burying all their firstborn, 5whom the LORD had struck down among them. 6On their gods also the LORD executed judgments.
So the people of Israel set out from Rameses and camped at 7Succoth.
And they set out from Succoth and camped at 8Etham, which is on the edge of the wilderness.
And they set out from Etham and turned back to 9Pi-hahiroth, which is east of Baal-zephon, and they camped before Migdol.
And they set out from before Hahirotha and 10passed through the midst of the sea into the wilderness, and they 11went a three days' journey in the wilderness of Etham and camped at Marah.
And they set out from Marah and came to 12Elim; at Elim there were twelve springs of water and seventy palm trees, and they camped there.
And they set out from Elim and camped by the Red Sea.
And they set out from the Red Sea and camped in 13the wilderness of Sin.
And they set out from the wilderness of Sin and camped at Dophkah.

And they set out from Kehelathah and camped at Mount Shepher.
And they set out from Mount Shepher and camped at Haradah.
And they set out from Haradah and camped at Makheloth.
And they set out from Makheloth and camped at Tahath.
And they set out from Tahath and camped at Terah.
And they set out from Terah and camped at Mithkah.
And they set out from Mithkah and camped at Hashmonah.
And they set out from Hashmonah and camped at Moseroth.
And they set out from Moseroth and camped at 19Bene-jaakan.
And they set out from Bene-jaakan and camped at 20Hor-haggidgad.
And they set out from Hor-haggidgad and camped at 21Jotbathah.
And they set out from Jotbathah and camped at Abronah.
And they set out from Abronah and camped at 22Ezion-geber.
And they set out from Ezion-geber and camped in the 23wilderness of Zin (that is, Kadesh).
And they set out from 24Kadesh and camped at 25Mount Hor, on the edge of the land of Edom.
And Aaron the priest went up 26Mount Hor at the command of the LORD and died there, in the fortieth year after the people of Israel had come out of the land of Egypt, on the first day of the fifth month.
And Aaron was 27 123 years old when he died on Mount Hor.
And 28the Canaanite, the king of Arad, who lived in the Negeb in the land of Canaan, heard of the coming of the people of Israel.
And they set out from Mount Hor and camped at Zalmonah.
And they set out from Zalmonah and camped at Punon.
And they set out from Punon and camped at 29Oboth.
And they set out from Oboth and camped at 30Iye-abarim, in the territory of Moab.
And they set out from Iyim and camped at 31Dibon-gad.
And they set out from Dibon-gad and camped at Almon-diblathaim.
And they set out from Almon-diblathaim 32and camped in the mountains of Abarim, before Nebo.
And they set out from the mountains of Abarim and camped in 33the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho;
they camped by the Jordan from Beth-jeshimoth as far as 34Abel-shittim in the plains of Moab.
And the LORD spoke to Moses in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho, saying,
"Speak to the people of Israel and say to them, 35When you pass over the Jordan into the land of Canaan,
then 36you shall drive out 37all the inhabitants of the land from before you and destroy all their 38figured stones and destroy all their metal images and demolish all their high places.
And you shall take possession of the land and settle in it, for I have given the land to you to possess it.
5439You shall inherit the land by lot according to your clans. 40To a large tribe you shall give a large inheritance, and to a small tribe you shall give a small inheritance. Wherever the lot falls for anyone, that shall be his. According to the tribes of your fathers you shall inherit.
But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then those of them whom you let remain shall be as 41barbs in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they shall trouble you in the land where you dwell.
And I will do to you 42as I thought to do to them."
