The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
10 The People of Israel set out and camped at Oboth. 10 The Israelites moved on and camped at Oboth.
11 They left Oboth and camped at Iye Abarim in the wilderness that faces Moab on the east. 11 Then they set out from Oboth and camped in Iye Abarim, in the desert that faces Moab toward the sunrise.
12 They went from there and pitched camp in the Zered Valley. 12 From there they moved on and camped in the Zered Valley.
13 Their next camp was alongside the Arnon River, which marks the border between Amorite country and Moab. 13 They set out from there and camped alongside the Arnon, which is in the desert extending into Amorite territory. The Arnon is the border of Moab, between Moab and the Amorites.
14 The Book of the Wars of God refers to this place: Waheb in Suphah, the canyons of Arnon; 14 That is why the Book of the Wars of the LORD says: ". . . Waheb in Suphah and the ravines, the Arnon
15 Along the canyon ravines that lead to the village Ar And lean hard against the border of Moab. 15 and the slopes of the ravines that lead to the site of Ar and lie along the border of Moab."
16 They went on to Beer (The Well), where God said to Moses, "Gather the people; I'll give them water." 16 From there they continued on to Beer, the well where the LORD said to Moses, "Gather the people together and I will give them water."
17 That's where Israel sang this song: Erupt, Well! Sing the Song of the Well, 17 Then Israel sang this song: "Spring up, O well! Sing about it,
18 the well sunk by princes, Dug out by the peoples' leaders digging with their scepters and staffs. 18 about the well that the princes dug, that the nobles of the people sank-- the nobles with scepters and staffs." Then they went from the desert to Mattanah,
19 to Nahaliel to Bamoth (The Heights) 19 from Mattanah to Nahaliel, from Nahaliel to Bamoth,
20 to the valley that opens into the fields of Moab from where Pisgah (The Summit) rises and overlooks Jeshimon (Wasteland). 20 and from Bamoth to the valley in Moab where the top of Pisgah overlooks the wasteland.
