8Take the rod, and gather thou the assembly together, thou, and Aaron thy brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water, and thou shalt bring forth to them water out of the rock: so thou shalt give the congregation and their beastsdrink .
And Mosestook the rod from before the LORD, as he commanded him.
And Moses and Aarongathered the congregation together before the rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels ; must we fetch you water out of this rock?11
And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rocktwice: and the water came outabundantly, and the congregationdrank , and their beasts also.
And the LORDspake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.
