Numbers 21

GNT 1 When the Canaanite king of Arad in the southern part of Canaan heard that the Israelites were coming by way of Atharim, he attacked them and captured some of them. NIV 1 When the Canaanite king of Arad, who lived in the Negev, heard that Israel was coming along the road to Atharim, he attacked the Israelites and captured some of them. GNT 2 Then the Israelites made a vow to the Lord: "If you will let us conquer these people, we will unconditionally dedicate them and their cities to you and will destroy them." NIV 2 Then Israel made this vow to the LORD: “If you will deliver these people into our hands, we will totally destroy their cities.” GNT 3 The Lord heard them and helped them conquer the Canaanites. So the Israelites completely destroyed them and their cities, and named the place Hormah. NIV 3 The LORD listened to Israel’s plea and gave the Canaanites over to them. They completely destroyed them and their towns; so the place was named Hormah. GNT 4 The Israelites left Mount Hor by the road that leads to the Gulf of Aqaba, in order to go around the territory of Edom. But on the way the people lost their patience NIV 4 They traveled from Mount Hor along the route to the Red Sea, to go around Edom. But the people grew impatient on the way; GNT 5 and spoke against God and Moses. They complained, "Why did you bring us out of Egypt to die in this desert, where there is no food or water? We can't stand any more of this miserable food!" NIV 5 they spoke against God and against Moses, and said, “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? There is no bread! There is no water! And we detest this miserable food!” GNT 6 Then the Lord sent poisonous snakes among the people, and many Israelites were bitten and died. NIV 6 Then the LORD sent venomous snakes among them; they bit the people and many Israelites died. GNT 7 The people came to Moses and said, "We sinned when we spoke against the Lord and against you. Now pray to the Lord to take these snakes away." So Moses prayed for the people. NIV 7 The people came to Moses and said, “We sinned when we spoke against the LORD and against you. Pray that the LORD will take the snakes away from us.” So Moses prayed for the people. GNT 8 Then the Lord told Moses to make a metal snake and put it on a pole, so that anyone who was bitten could look at it and be healed. NIV 8 The LORD said to Moses, “Make a snake and put it up on a pole; anyone who is bitten can look at it and live.” GNT 9 So Moses made a bronze snake and put it on a pole. Anyone who had been bitten would look at the bronze snake and be healed. NIV 9 So Moses made a bronze snake and put it up on a pole. Then when anyone was bitten by a snake and looked at the bronze snake, they lived. GNT 10 The Israelites moved on and camped at Oboth. NIV 10 The Israelites moved on and camped at Oboth. GNT 11 After leaving that place, they camped at the ruins of Abarim in the wilderness east of Moabite territory. NIV 11 Then they set out from Oboth and camped in Iye Abarim, in the wilderness that faces Moab toward the sunrise. GNT 12 Then they camped in Zered Valley. NIV 12 From there they moved on and camped in the Zered Valley. GNT 13 From there they moved again and camped on the north side of the Arnon River, in the wilderness which extends into Amorite territory. (The Arnon was the border between the Moabites and the Amorites.) NIV 13 They set out from there and camped alongside the Arnon, which is in the wilderness extending into Amorite territory. The Arnon is the border of Moab, between Moab and the Amorites. GNT 14 That is why [The Book of the Lord's Battles ]speaks of ". . . the town of Waheb in the area of Suphah, and the valleys; the Arnon River, NIV 14 That is why the Book of the Wars of the LORD says: “. . . Zahab in Suphah and the ravines, the Arnon GNT 15 and the slope of the valleys that extend to the town of Ar and toward the border of Moab." NIV 15 and the slopes of the ravines that lead to the settlement of Ar and lie along the border of Moab.” GNT 16 From there they went on to a place called Wells, where the Lord said to Moses, "Bring the people together, and I will give them water." NIV 16 From there they continued on to Beer, the well where the LORD said to Moses, “Gather the people together and I will give them water.” GNT 17 At that time the people of Israel sang this song: "Wells, produce your water; And we will greet it with a song - NIV 17 Then Israel sang this song: “Spring up, O well! Sing about it, GNT 18 The well dug by princes And by leaders of the people, Dug with a royal scepter And with their walking sticks." They moved from the wilderness to Mattanah, NIV 18 about the well that the princes dug, that the nobles of the people sank— the nobles with scepters and staffs.” Then they went from the wilderness to Mattanah, GNT 19 and from there they went on to Nahaliel, and from Nahaliel to Bamoth, NIV 19 from Mattanah to Nahaliel, from Nahaliel to Bamoth, GNT 20 and from Bamoth to the valley in the territory of the Moabites, below the top of Mount Pisgah, looking out over the desert. NIV 20 and from Bamoth to the valley in Moab where the top of Pisgah overlooks the wasteland. GNT 21 Then the people of Israel sent messengers to the Amorite king Sihon to say: NIV 21 Israel sent messengers to say to Sihon king of the Amorites: GNT 22 "Let us pass through your land. We and our cattle will not leave the road and go into your fields or vineyards, and we will not drink water from your wells; we will stay on the main road until we are out of your territory." NIV 22 “Let us pass through your country. We will not turn aside into any field or vineyard, or drink water from any well. We will travel along the King’s Highway until we have passed through your territory.” GNT 23 But Sihon would not permit the people of Israel to pass through his territory. He gathered his army and went out to Jahaz in the wilderness and attacked the Israelites. NIV 23 But Sihon would not let Israel pass through his territory. He mustered his entire army and marched out into the wilderness against Israel. When he reached Jahaz, he fought with Israel. GNT 24 But the Israelites killed many of the enemy in battle and occupied their land from the Arnon River north to the Jabbok, that is, to the Ammonites, because the Ammonite border was strongly defended. NIV 24 Israel, however, put him to the sword and took over his land from the Arnon to the Jabbok, but only as far as the Ammonites, because their border was fortified. GNT 25 So the people of Israel captured all the Amorite cities, including Heshbon and all the surrounding towns, and settled in them. NIV 25 Israel captured all the cities of the Amorites and occupied them, including Heshbon and all its surrounding settlements. GNT 26 Heshbon was the capital city of the Amorite king Sihon, who had fought against the former king of Moab and had captured all his land as far as the Arnon River. NIV 26 Heshbon was the city of Sihon king of the Amorites, who had fought against the former king of Moab and had taken from him all his land as far as the Arnon. GNT 27 That is why the poets sing, "Come to Heshbon, to King Sihon's city! We want to see it rebuilt and restored. NIV 27 That is why the poets say: “Come to Heshbon and let it be rebuilt; let Sihon’s city be restored. GNT 28 Once from this city of Heshbon Sihon's army went forth like a fire; It destroyed the city of Ar in Moab And devoured the hills of the upper Arnon. NIV 28 “Fire went out from Heshbon, a blaze from the city of Sihon. It consumed Ar of Moab, the citizens of Arnon’s heights. GNT 29 How terrible for you, people of Moab! You worshipers of Chemosh are brought to ruin! Your god let the men become refugees, And the women became captives of the Amorite king. NIV 29 Woe to you, Moab! You are destroyed, people of Chemosh! He has given up his sons as fugitives and his daughters as captives to Sihon king of the Amorites. GNT 30 But now their descendants are destroyed, All the way from Heshbon to Dibon, From Nashim to Nophah, near Medeba." NIV 30 “But we have overthrown them; Heshbon’s dominion has been destroyed all the way to Dibon. We have demolished them as far as Nophah, which extends to Medeba.” GNT 31 So the people of Israel settled in the territory of the Amorites, NIV 31 So Israel settled in the land of the Amorites. GNT 32 and Moses sent men to find the best way to attack the city of Jazer. The Israelites captured it and its surrounding towns and drove out the Amorites living there. NIV 32 After Moses had sent spies to Jazer, the Israelites captured its surrounding settlements and drove out the Amorites who were there. GNT 33 Then the Israelites turned and took the road to Bashan, and King Og of Bashan marched out with his army to attack them at Edrei. NIV 33 Then they turned and went up along the road toward Bashan, and Og king of Bashan and his whole army marched out to meet them in battle at Edrei. GNT 34 The Lord said to Moses, "Do not be afraid of him. I will give you victory over him, all his people, and his land. Do to him what you did to Sihon, the Amorite king who ruled at Heshbon." NIV 34 The LORD said to Moses, “Do not be afraid of him, for I have delivered him into your hands, along with his whole army and his land. Do to him what you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon.” GNT 35 So the Israelites killed Og, his sons, and all his people, leaving no survivors, and then they occupied his land. NIV 35 So they struck him down, together with his sons and his whole army, leaving them no survivors. And they took possession of his land.
