And they journeyed from 1Kadesh, and the people of Israel, the whole congregation, came to 2Mount Hor.
And the LORD said to Moses and Aaron at Mount Hor, on the border of the land of Edom,
3"Let Aaron be gathered to his people, for he shall not enter the land that I have given to the people of Israel, because 4you rebelled against my command at the waters of Meribah.
Take Aaron and Eleazar his son and bring them up to Mount Hor.
And strip Aaron of his garments and put them on Eleazar his son. And Aaron 5shall be gathered to his people and shall die there."
Moses did as the LORD commanded. And they went up Mount Hor in the sight of all the congregation.
6And Moses stripped Aaron of his garments and put them on Eleazar his son. And Aaron died there 7on the top of the mountain. Then Moses and Eleazar came down from the mountain.
And when all the congregation saw that Aaron had perished, 8all the house of Israel wept for Aaron thirty days.
