Numbers 20

NLT 1 In the first month of the year, the whole community of Israel arrived in the wilderness of Zin and camped at Kadesh. While they were there, Miriam died and was buried. NIV 1 In the first month the whole Israelite community arrived at the Desert of Zin, and they stayed at Kadesh. There Miriam died and was buried. NLT 2 There was no water for the people to drink at that place, so they rebelled against Moses and Aaron. NIV 2 Now there was no water for the community, and the people gathered in opposition to Moses and Aaron. NLT 3 The people blamed Moses and said, “If only we had died in the LORD ’s presence with our brothers! NIV 3 They quarreled with Moses and said, “If only we had died when our brothers fell dead before the LORD! NLT 4 Why have you brought the congregation of the LORD ’s people into this wilderness to die, along with all our livestock? NIV 4 Why did you bring the LORD’s community into this wilderness, that we and our livestock should die here? NLT 5 Why did you make us leave Egypt and bring us here to this terrible place? This land has no grain, no figs, no grapes, no pomegranates, and no water to drink!” NIV 5 Why did you bring us up out of Egypt to this terrible place? It has no grain or figs, grapevines or pomegranates. And there is no water to drink!” NLT 6 Moses and Aaron turned away from the people and went to the entrance of the Tabernacle, where they fell face down on the ground. Then the glorious presence of the LORD appeared to them, NIV 6 Moses and Aaron went from the assembly to the entrance to the tent of meeting and fell facedown, and the glory of the LORD appeared to them. NLT 7 and the LORD said to Moses, NIV 7 The LORD said to Moses, NLT 8 “You and Aaron must take the staff and assemble the entire community. As the people watch, speak to the rock over there, and it will pour out its water. You will provide enough water from the rock to satisfy the whole community and their livestock.” NIV 8 “Take the staff, and you and your brother Aaron gather the assembly together. Speak to that rock before their eyes and it will pour out its water. You will bring water out of the rock for the community so they and their livestock can drink.” NLT 9 So Moses did as he was told. He took the staff from the place where it was kept before the LORD . NIV 9 So Moses took the staff from the LORD’s presence, just as he commanded him. NLT 10 Then he and Aaron summoned the people to come and gather at the rock. “Listen, you rebels!” he shouted. “Must we bring you water from this rock?” NIV 10 He and Aaron gathered the assembly together in front of the rock and Moses said to them, “Listen, you rebels, must we bring you water out of this rock?” NLT 11 Then Moses raised his hand and struck the rock twice with the staff, and water gushed out. So the entire community and their livestock drank their fill. NIV 11 Then Moses raised his arm and struck the rock twice with his staff. Water gushed out, and the community and their livestock drank. NLT 12 But the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not trust me enough to demonstrate my holiness to the people of Israel, you will not lead them into the land I am giving them!” NIV 12 But the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not trust in me enough to honor me as holy in the sight of the Israelites, you will not bring this community into the land I give them.” NLT 13 This place was known as the waters of Meribah (which means “arguing”) because there the people of Israel argued with the LORD, and there he demonstrated his holiness among them. NIV 13 These were the waters of Meribah, where the Israelites quarreled with the LORD and where he was proved holy among them. NLT 14 While Moses was at Kadesh, he sent ambassadors to the king of Edom with this message: “This is what your relatives, the people of Israel, say: You know all the hardships we have been through. 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 on us. NLT 15 Our ancestors went down to Egypt, and we lived there a long time, and we and our ancestors were brutally mistreated by the Egyptians. NIV 15 Our ancestors went down into Egypt, and we lived there many years. The Egyptians mistreated us and our ancestors, NLT 16 But when we cried out to the LORD, he heard us and sent an angel who brought us out of Egypt. Now we are camped at Kadesh, a town on the border of your land. 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. NLT 17 Please let us travel through your land. We will be careful not to go through your fields and vineyards. We won’t even drink water from your wells. We will stay on the king’s road and never leave it until we have passed 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.” NLT 18 But the king of Edom said, “Stay out of my land, or I will meet you with an army!” NIV 18 But Edom answered: “You may not pass through here; if you try, we will march out and attack you with the sword.” NLT 19 The Israelites answered, “We will stay on the main road. If our livestock drink your water, we will pay for it. Just let us pass through your country. That’s all we ask.” 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.” NLT 20 But the king of Edom replied, “Stay out! You may not pass through our land.” With that he mobilized his army and marched out against them with an imposing force. NIV 20 Again they answered: “You may not pass through.” Then Edom came out against them with a large and powerful army. NLT 21 Because Edom refused to allow Israel to pass through their country, Israel was forced to turn around. NIV 21 Since Edom refused to let them go through their territory, Israel turned away from them. NLT 22 The whole community of Israel left Kadesh and arrived at Mount Hor. NIV 22 The whole Israelite community set out from Kadesh and came to Mount Hor. NLT 23 There, on the border of the land of Edom, the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, NIV 23 At Mount Hor, near the border of Edom, the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, NLT 24 “The time has come for Aaron to join his ancestors in death. He will not enter the land I am giving the people of Israel, because the two of you rebelled against my instructions concerning the water at Meribah. NIV 24 “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. NLT 25 Now take Aaron and his son Eleazar up Mount Hor. NIV 25 Get Aaron and his son Eleazar and take them up Mount Hor. NLT 26 There you will remove Aaron’s priestly garments and put them on Eleazar, his son. Aaron will die there and join his ancestors.” NIV 26 Remove Aaron’s garments and put them on his son Eleazar, for Aaron will be gathered to his people; he will die there.” NLT 27 So Moses did as the LORD commanded. The three of them went up Mount Hor together as the whole community watched. NIV 27 Moses did as the LORD commanded: They went up Mount Hor in the sight of the whole community. NLT 28 At the summit, Moses removed the priestly garments from Aaron and put them on Eleazar, Aaron’s son. Then Aaron died there on top of the mountain, and Moses and Eleazar went back down. NIV 28 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, NLT 29 When the people realized that Aaron had died, all Israel mourned for him thirty days. NIV 29 and when the whole community learned that Aaron had died, all the Israelites mourned for him thirty days.
