Then came the children of Israel, even the whole congregation, into the desert of Zin in the firstmonth: and the peopleabode in Kadesh; and Miriamdied there, and was buried there.
And there was no water for the congregation: and they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron.3
And the peoplechode with Moses, and spake , saying , Would God that we had died when our brethrendiedbefore the LORD!4
And why have ye brought up the congregation of the LORD into this wilderness, that we and our cattle should die there?
And wherefore have ye made us to come up out of Egypt, to bring us in unto this evilplace? it is no place of seed, or of figs, or of vines, or of pomegranates; neither is there any water to drink .
And Moses and Aaronwent from the presence of the assembly unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they fell upon their faces: and the glory of the LORDappeared unto them.
