The whole Israelite community set out from the Desert of Sin,1 traveling from place to place as the LORD commanded. They camped at Rephidim,2 but there was no water3 for the people to drink.
So they quarreled with Moses and said, "Give us water4 to drink."5 Moses replied, "Why do you quarrel with me? Why do you put the LORD to the test?"63
But the people were thirsty7 for water there, and they grumbled8 against Moses. They said, "Why did you bring us up out of Egypt to make us and our children and livestock die9 of thirst?"
