Let us pass over, we pray thee, through thy land; we pass not over through a field, or through a vineyard, nor do we drink waters of a well; the way of the king we go, we turn not aside -- right or left -- till that we pass over thy border.'
And Edom saith unto him, `Thou dost not pass over through me, lest with sword I come out to meet thee.'
And the sons of Israel say unto him, `In the highway we go, and if of thy waters we drink -- I and my cattle -- then I have given their price; only (it is nothing) on my feet I pass over.'
And he saith, `Thou dost not pass over;' and Edom cometh out to meet him with much people, and with a strong hand;
and Edom refuseth to suffer Israel to pass over through his border, and Israel turneth aside from off him.
And the sons of Israel, the whole company, journey from Kadesh, and come in unto mount Hor,
and Jehovah speaketh unto Moses and unto Aaron in mount Hor, on the border of the land of Edom, saying,
`Aaron is gathered unto his people, for he doth not go in unto the land which I have given to the sons of Israel, because that ye provoked My mouth at the waters of Meribah.
`Take Aaron and Eleazar his son, and cause them to go up mount Hor,
and strip Aaron of his garments, and thou hast clothed [with] them Eleazar his son, and Aaron is gathered, and doth die there.'
And Moses doth as Jehovah hath commanded, and they go up unto mount Hor before the eyes of all the company,
and Moses strippeth Aaron of his garments, and clotheth with them Eleazar his son, and Aaron dieth there on the top of the mount; and Moses cometh down -- Eleazar also -- from the mount,
and all the company see that Aaron hath expired, and they bewail Aaron thirty days -- all the house of Israel.
