The whole Israelite community set out from Kadesh and came to Mount Hor.
At Mount Hor, near the border of Edom, the LORD said to Moses and Aaron,
“Aaron will be gathered to his people. He will not enter the land I give the Israelites, because both of you rebelled against my command at the waters of Meribah.
Get Aaron and his son Eleazar and take them up Mount Hor.
Remove Aaron’s garments and put them on his son Eleazar, for Aaron will be gathered to his people; he will die there.”
Moses did as the LORD commanded: They went up Mount Hor in the sight of the whole community.
Moses removed Aaron’s garments and put them on his son Eleazar. And Aaron died there on top of the mountain. Then Moses and Eleazar came down from the mountain,
and when the whole community learned that Aaron had died, all the Israelites mourned for him thirty days.
