The LORD Provides Water

22 1Then Moses led Israel from the Red * Sea, and they went out into 2the wilderness of 3Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness and found no water.
23 When they came to 4Marah, they could not drink the waters of Marah, for they were bitter; therefore * it was named * Marah.
24 So the people 5grumbled at Moses, saying, "What shall we drink?"
25 Then he 6cried out to the LORD, and the LORD showed him 7a tree; and he threw it into the waters, and the waters became sweet. There He 8made for them a statute and regulation, and there He 9tested them.
26 And He said, "10If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear 11to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, 12I will put none * of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, 13the LORD, am your healer."
27 Then they came to 14Elim where there were twelve * springs of water and seventy date palms, and they camped there beside the waters.
