Numbers 20:14-21

CSB 14 Moses sent messengers from Kadesh to the king of Edom, "This is what your brother Israel says, 'You know all the hardships that have overtaken us. NIV 14 Moses sent messengers from Kadesh to the king of Edom, saying: "This is what your brother Israel says: You know about all the hardships that have come upon us. CSB 15 Our fathers went down to Egypt, and we lived in Egypt many years, but the Egyptians treated us and our fathers badly. NIV 15 Our forefathers went down into Egypt, and we lived there many years. The Egyptians mistreated us and our fathers, CSB 16 When we cried out to the Lord, He heard our voice, sent an Angel, and brought us out of Egypt. Now look, we are in Kadesh, a city on the border of your territory. NIV 16 but when we cried out to the LORD, he heard our cry and sent an angel and brought us out of Egypt. "Now we are here at Kadesh, a town on the edge of your territory. CSB 17 Please let us travel through your land. We won't travel through [any] field or vineyard, or drink [any] well water. We will travel the King's Highway; we won't turn to the right or the left until we have traveled through your territory.' " NIV 17 Please let us pass through your country. We will not go through any field or vineyard, or drink water from any well. We will travel along the king's highway and not turn to the right or to the left until we have passed through your territory." CSB 18 But Edom answered him, "You must not travel through our land, or we will come out and confront you with the sword." NIV 18 But Edom answered: "You may not pass through here; if you try, we will march out and attack you with the sword." CSB 19 "We will go on the main road," the Israelites replied to them, "and if we or our herds drink your water, we will pay its price. There will be no problem; only let us travel through on foot." NIV 19 The Israelites replied: "We will go along the main road, and if we or our livestock drink any of your water, we will pay for it. We only want to pass through on foot--nothing else." CSB 20 Yet Edom insisted, "You must not travel through." And they came out to confront them with a large force of heavily-armed people. NIV 20 Again they answered: "You may not pass through." Then Edom came out against them with a large and powerful army. CSB 21 Edom refused to allow Israel to travel through their territory, and Israel turned away from them. NIV 21 Since Edom refused to let them go through their territory, Israel turned away from them.
