Numbers 20


1  Then came935 the children1121 of Israel,3478 even the whole3605 congregation,5712 into the desert4057 of Zin6790 in the first7223 month:2320 and the people5971 abode3427 in Kadesh;6946 and Miriam4813 died4191 there,8033 and was buried6912 there.8033

2  And there was1961 no3808 water4325 for the congregation:5712 and they gathered themselves together6950 against5921 Moses4872 and against5921 Aaron.175

3  And the people5971 chided7378 with5973 Moses,4872 and spoke,559 saying,559 Would God3863 that we had died1478 when our brethren251 died1478 before6440 the LORD!3068

4  And why4100 have ye brought up935 853 the congregation6951 of the Lord3068 into413 this2088 wilderness,4057 that we587 and our cattle1165 should die4191 there?8033

5  And wherefore4100 have ye made us to come up5927 out of Egypt,4480 4714 to bring us in935 853 unto413 this2088 evil7451 place?4725 it is no3808 place4725 of seed,2233 or of figs,8384 or of vines,1612 or of pomegranates;7416 neither369 is there any water4325 to drink.8354

6  And Moses4872 and Aaron175 went935 from the presence4480 6440 of the assembly6951 unto413 the door6607 of the tabernacle168 of the congregation,4150 and they fell5307 upon5921 their faces:6440 and the glory3519 of the LORD3068 appeared7200 unto413 them.

7  And the LORD3068 spoke1696 unto413 Moses,4872 saying,559

8  Take3947 853 the rod,4294 and gather thou the assembly together,6950 853 5712 thou,859 and Aaron175 thy brother,251 and speak1696 ye unto413 the rock5553 before their eyes;5869 and it shall give forth5414 his water,4325 and thou shalt bring forth3318 to them water4325 out of4480 the rock:5553 so thou shalt give 853 the congregation5712 and their beasts1165 drink.8248

9  And Moses4872 took3947 853 the rod4294 from before4480 6440 the LORD,3068 as834 he commanded6680 him.

10  And Moses4872 and Aaron175 gathered the congregation together6950 853 6951 before413 6440 the rock,5553 and he said559 unto them, Hear8085 now,4994 ye rebels;4784 must we fetch3318 you water4325 out of4480 this2088 rock?5553

11  And Moses4872 lifted up7311 853 his hand,3027 and with his rod4294 he smote5221 853 the rock5553 twice:6471 and the water4325 came out3318 abundantly,7227 and the congregation5712 drank,8354 and their beasts1165 also.

12  And the LORD3068 spoke559 unto413 Moses4872 and Aaron,175 Because3282 ye believed539 me not,3808 to sanctify6942 me in the eyes5869 of the children1121 of Israel,3478 therefore3651 ye shall not3808 bring935 853 this2088 congregation6951 into413 the land776 which834 I have given5414 them.

13  This1992 is the water4325 of Meribah;4809 because834 the children1121 of Israel3478 strove7378 with854 the LORD,3068 and he was sanctified6942 in them.

14  And Moses4872 sent7971 messengers4397 from Kadesh4480 6946 unto413 the king4428 of Edom,123 Thus3541 saith559 thy brother251 Israel,3478 Thou859 knowest3045 853 all3605 the travail8513 that834 hath befallen4672 us:

15  How our fathers1 went down3381 into Egypt,4714 and we have dwelt3427 in Egypt4714 a long7227 time;3117 and the Egyptians4714 vexed7489 us, and our fathers:1

16  And when we cried6817 unto413 the LORD,3068 he heard8085 our voice,6963 and sent7971 an angel,4397 and hath brought us forth3318 out of Egypt:4480 4714 and, behold,2009 we587 are in Kadesh,6946 a city5892 in the uttermost7097 of thy border:1366

17  Let us pass,5674 I pray thee,4994 through thy country:776 we will not3808 pass through5674 the fields,7704 or through the vineyards,3754 neither3808 will we drink8354 of the water4325 of the wells:875 we will go1980 by the king's4428 high way,1870 we will not3808 turn5186 to the right hand3225 nor to the left,8040 until5704 834 we have passed5674 thy borders.1366

18  And Edom123 said559 unto413 him, Thou shalt not3808 pass5674 by me, lest6435 I come out3318 against7125 thee with the sword.2719

19  And the children1121 of Israel3478 said559 unto413 him, We will go5927 by the high way:4546 and if518 I589 and my cattle4735 drink8354 of thy water,4325 then I will pay5414 4377 for it: I will only,7535 without369 doing any thing1697 else, go through5674 on my feet.7272

20  And he said,559 Thou shalt not3808 go through.5674 And Edom123 came out3318 against7125 him with much3515 people,5971 and with a strong2389 hand.3027

21  Thus Edom123 refused3985 to give5414 853 Israel3478 passage5674 through his border:1366 wherefore Israel3478 turned away5186 from4480 5921 him.

22  And the children1121 of Israel,3478 even the whole3605 congregation,5712 journeyed5265 from Kadesh,4480 6946 and came935 unto mount2022 Hor.2023

23  And the LORD3068 spoke559 unto413 Moses4872 and Aaron175 in mount2022 Hor,2023 by5921 the coast1366 of the land776 of Edom,123 saying,559

24  Aaron175 shall be gathered622 unto413 his people:5971 for3588 he shall not3808 enter935 into413 the land776 which834 I have given5414 unto the children1121 of Israel,3478 because5921 834 ye rebelled against4784 853 my word6310 at the water4325 of Meribah.4809

25  Take3947 853 Aaron175 and Eleazar499 his son,1121 and bring them up5927 853 unto mount2022 Hor:2023

26  And strip6584 853 Aaron175 853 of his garments,899 and put them upon3847 853 Eleazar499 his son:1121 and Aaron175 shall be gathered622 unto his people, and shall die4191 there.8033

27  And Moses4872 did6213 as834 the LORD3068 commanded:6680 and they went up5927 into413 mount2022 Hor2023 in the sight5869 of all3605 the congregation.5712

28  And Moses4872 stripped6584 853 Aaron175 853 of his garments,899 and put them upon3847 853 853 Eleazar499 his son;1121 and Aaron175 died4191 there8033 in the top7218 of the mount:2022 and Moses4872 and Eleazar499 came down3381 from4480 the mount.2022

29  And when all3605 the congregation5712 saw7200 that3588 Aaron175 was dead,1478 they mourned1058 for 853 Aaron175 thirty7970 days,3117 even all3605 the house1004 of Israel.3478


1 καὶ ἦλθον οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ πᾶσα ἡ συναγωγή εἰς τὴν ἔρημον Σιν ἐν τῷ μηνὶ τῷ πρώτῳ καὶ κατέμεινεν ὁ λαὸς ἐν Καδης καὶ ἐτελεύτησεν ἐκεῖ Μαριαμ καὶ ἐτάφη ἐκεῖ

2 καὶ οὐκ ἦν ὕδωρ τῇ συναγωγῇ καὶ ἠθροίσθησαν ἐπὶ Μωυσῆν καὶ Ααρων

3 καὶ ἐλοιδορεῖτο ὁ λαὸς πρὸς Μωυσῆν λέγοντες ὄφελον ἀπεθάνομεν ἐν τῇ ἀπωλείᾳ τῶν ἀδελφῶν ἡμῶν ἔναντι κυρίου

4 καὶ ἵνα τί ἀνηγάγετε τὴν συναγωγὴν κυρίου εἰς τὴν ἔρημον ταύτην ἀποκτεῖναι ἡμᾶς καὶ τὰ κτήνη ἡμῶν

5 καὶ ἵνα τί τοῦτο ἀνηγάγετε ἡμᾶς ἐξ Αἰγύπτου παραγενέσθαι εἰς τὸν τόπον τὸν πονηρὸν τοῦτον τόπος οὗ οὐ σπείρεται οὐδὲ συκαῖ οὐδὲ ἄμπελοι οὐδὲ ῥόαι οὐδὲ ὕδωρ ἐστὶν πιεῖν

6 καὶ ἦλθεν Μωυσῆς καὶ Ααρων ἀπὸ προσώπου τῆς συναγωγῆς ἐπὶ τὴν θύραν τῆς σκηνῆς τοῦ μαρτυρίου καὶ ἔπεσαν ἐπὶ πρόσωπον καὶ ὤφθη ἡ δόξα κυρίου πρὸς αὐτούς

7 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν λέγων

8 λαβὲ τὴν ῥάβδον καὶ ἐκκλησίασον τὴν συναγωγὴν σὺ καὶ Ααρων ὁ ἀδελφός σου καὶ λαλήσατε πρὸς τὴν πέτραν ἔναντι αὐτῶν καὶ δώσει τὰ ὕδατα αὐτῆς καὶ ἐξοίσετε αὐτοῖς ὕδωρ ἐκ τῆς πέτρας καὶ ποτιεῖτε τὴν συναγωγὴν καὶ τὰ κτήνη αὐτῶν

9 καὶ ἔλαβεν Μωυσῆς τὴν ῥάβδον τὴν ἀπέναντι κυρίου καθὰ συνέταξεν κύριος

10 καὶ ἐξεκκλησίασεν Μωυσῆς καὶ Ααρων τὴν συναγωγὴν ἀπέναντι τῆς πέτρας καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτούς ἀκούσατέ μου οἱ ἀπειθεῖς μὴ ἐκ τῆς πέτρας ταύτης ἐξάξομεν ὑμῖν ὕδωρ

11 καὶ ἐπάρας Μωυσῆς τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ἐπάταξεν τὴν πέτραν τῇ ῥάβδῳ δίς καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ὕδωρ πολύ καὶ ἔπιεν ἡ συναγωγὴ καὶ τὰ κτήνη αὐτῶν

12 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν καὶ Ααρων ὅτι οὐκ ἐπιστεύσατε ἁγιάσαι με ἐναντίον υἱῶν Ισραηλ διὰ τοῦτο οὐκ εἰσάξετε ὑμεῖς τὴν συναγωγὴν ταύτην εἰς τὴν γῆν ἣν δέδωκα αὐτοῖς

13 τοῦτο ὕδωρ ἀντιλογίας ὅτι ἐλοιδορήθησαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἔναντι κυρίου καὶ ἡγιάσθη ἐν αὐτοῖς

14 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Μωυσῆς ἀγγέλους ἐκ Καδης πρὸς βασιλέα Εδωμ λέγων τάδε λέγει ὁ ἀδελφός σου Ισραηλ σὺ ἐπίστῃ πάντα τὸν μόχθον τὸν εὑρόντα ἡμᾶς

15 καὶ κατέβησαν οἱ πατέρες ἡμῶν εἰς Αἴγυπτον καὶ παρῳκήσαμεν ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ ἡμέρας πλείους καὶ ἐκάκωσαν ἡμᾶς οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι καὶ τοὺς πατέρας ἡμῶν

16 καὶ ἀνεβοήσαμεν πρὸς κύριον καὶ εἰσήκουσεν κύριος τῆς φωνῆς ἡμῶν καὶ ἀποστείλας ἄγγελον ἐξήγαγεν ἡμᾶς ἐξ Αἰγύπτου καὶ νῦν ἐσμεν ἐν Καδης πόλει ἐκ μέρους τῶν ὁρίων σου

17 παρελευσόμεθα διὰ τῆς γῆς σου οὐ διελευσόμεθα δι᾽ ἀγρῶν οὐδὲ δι᾽ ἀμπελώνων οὐδὲ πιόμεθα ὕδωρ ἐκ λάκκου σου ὁδῷ βασιλικῇ πορευσόμεθα οὐκ ἐκκλινοῦμεν δεξιὰ οὐδὲ εὐώνυμα ἕως ἂν παρέλθωμεν τὰ ὅριά σου

18 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτὸν Εδωμ οὐ διελεύσῃ δι᾽ ἐμοῦ εἰ δὲ μή ἐν πολέμῳ ἐξελεύσομαι εἰς συνάντησίν σοι

19 καὶ λέγουσιν αὐτῷ οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ παρὰ τὸ ὄρος παρελευσόμεθα ἐὰν δὲ τοῦ ὕδατός σου πίωμεν ἐγώ τε καὶ τὰ κτήνη δώσω τιμήν σοι ἀλλὰ τὸ πρᾶγμα οὐδέν ἐστιν παρὰ τὸ ὄρος παρελευσόμεθα

20 ὁ δὲ εἶπεν οὐ διελεύσῃ δι᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ ἐξῆλθεν Εδωμ εἰς συνάντησιν αὐτῷ ἐν ὄχλῳ βαρεῖ καὶ ἐν χειρὶ ἰσχυρᾷ

21 καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησεν Εδωμ δοῦναι τῷ Ισραηλ παρελθεῖν διὰ τῶν ὁρίων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξέκλινεν Ισραηλ ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ

22 καὶ ἀπῆραν ἐκ Καδης καὶ παρεγένοντο οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ πᾶσα ἡ συναγωγή εἰς Ωρ τὸ ὄρος

23 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν καὶ Ααρων ἐν Ωρ τῷ ὄρει ἐπὶ τῶν ὁρίων γῆς Εδωμ λέγων

24 προστεθήτω Ααρων πρὸς τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ ὅτι οὐ μὴ εἰσέλθητε εἰς τὴν γῆν ἣν δέδωκα τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ διότι παρωξύνατέ με ἐπὶ τοῦ ὕδατος τῆς λοιδορίας

25 λαβὲ τὸν Ααρων καὶ Ελεαζαρ τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀναβίβασον αὐτοὺς εἰς Ωρ τὸ ὄρος ἔναντι πάσης τῆς συναγωγῆς

26 καὶ ἔκδυσον Ααρων τὴν στολὴν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔνδυσον Ελεαζαρ τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ Ααρων προστεθεὶς ἀποθανέτω ἐκεῖ

27 καὶ ἐποίησεν Μωυσῆς καθὰ συνέταξεν κύριος καὶ ἀνεβίβασεν αὐτὸν εἰς Ωρ τὸ ὄρος ἐναντίον πάσης τῆς συναγωγῆς

28 καὶ ἐξέδυσεν Ααρων τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐνέδυσεν αὐτὰ Ελεαζαρ τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπέθανεν Ααρων ἐπὶ τῆς κορυφῆς τοῦ ὄρους καὶ κατέβη Μωυσῆς καὶ Ελεαζαρ ἐκ τοῦ ὄρους

29 καὶ εἶδεν πᾶσα ἡ συναγωγὴ ὅτι ἀπελύθη Ααρων καὶ ἔκλαυσαν τὸν Ααρων τριάκοντα ἡμέρας πᾶς οἶκος Ισραηλ

1 Veneruntque filii Israël et omnis multitudo in desertum Sin, mense primo, et mansit populus in Cades. Mortuaque est ibi Maria, et sepulta in eodem loco.

2 Cumque indigeret aqua populus, convenerunt adversum Moysen et Aaron:

3 et versi in seditionem, dixerunt: Utinam periissemus inter fratres nostros coram Domino.

4 Cur eduxistis ecclesiam Domini in solitudinem, ut et nos et nostra jumenta moriamur?

5 quare nos fecistis ascendere de Ægypto, et adduxistis in locum istum pessimum, qui seri non potest, qui nec ficum gignit, nec vineas, nec malogranata, insuper et aquam non habet ad bibendum?

6 Ingressusque Moyses et Aaron, dimissa multitudine, tabernaculum fœderis, corruerunt proni in terram, clamaveruntque ad Dominum, atque dixerunt: Domine Deus, audi clamorem hujus populi, et aperi eis thesaurum tuum fontem aquæ vivæ, ut satiati, cesset murmuratio eorum. Et apparuit gloria Domini super eos.

7 Locutusque est Dominus ad Moysen, dicens:

8 Tolle virgam, et congrega populum, tu et Aaron frater tuus, et loquimini ad petram coram eis, et illa dabit aquas. Cumque eduxeris aquam de petra, bibet omnis multitudo et jumenta ejus.

9 Tulit igitur Moyses virgam, quæ erat in conspectu Domini, sicut præceperat ei,

10 congregata multitudine ante petram: dixitque eis: Audite, rebelles et increduli: num de petra hac vobis aquam poterimus ejicere?

11 Cumque elevasset Moyses manum, percutiens virga bis silicem, egressæ sunt aquæ largissimæ, ita ut populus biberet et jumenta.

12 Dixitque Dominus ad Moysen et Aaron: Quia non credidistis mihi, ut sanctificaretis me coram filiis Israël, non introducetis hos populos in terram, quam dabo eis.

13 Hæc est aqua contradictionis, ubi jurgati sunt filii Israël contra Dominum, et sanctificatus est in eis.

14 Misit interea nuntios Moyses de Cades ad regem Edom, qui dicerent: Hæc mandat frater tuus Israël: Nosti omnem laborem qui apprehendit nos,

15 quomodo descenderint patres nostri in Ægyptum, et habitaverimus ibi multo tempore, afflixerintque nos Ægyptii, et patres nostros:

16 et quomodo clamaverimus ad Dominum, et exaudierit nos, miseritque angelum, qui eduxerit nos de Ægypto. Ecce in urbe Cades, quæ est in extremis finibus tuis, positi,

17 obsecramus ut nobis transire liceat per terram tuam. Non ibimus per agros, nec per vineas; non bibemus aquas de puteis tuis: sed gradiemur via publica, nec ad dexteram nec ad sinistram declinantes, donec transeamus terminos tuos.

18 Cui respondit Edom: Non transibis per me, alioquin armatus occurram tibi.

19 Dixeruntque filii Israël: Per tritam gradiemur viam: et si biberimus aquas tuas, nos et pecora nostra, dabimus quod justum est: nulla erit in pretio difficultas, tantum velociter transeamus.

20 At ille respondit: Non transibis. Statimque egressus est obvius, cum infinita multitudo, et manu forti,

21 nec voluit acquiescere deprecanti, ut concederet transitum per fines suos. Quam ob rem divertit ab eo Israël.

22 Cumque castra movissent de Cades, venerunt in montem Hor, qui est in finibus terræ Edom:

23 ubi locutus est Dominus ad Moysen:

24 Pergat, inquit, Aaron ad populos suos: non enim intrabit terram, quam dedi filiis Israël, eo quod incredulus fuerit ori meo, ad aquas contradictionis.

25 Tolle Aaron et filium ejus cum eo, et duces eos in montem Hor.

26 Cumque nudaveris patrem veste sua, indues ea Eleazarum filium ejus: Aaron colligetur, et morietur ibi.

27 Fecit Moyses ut præceperat Dominus: et ascenderunt in montem Hor coram omni multitudine.

28 Cumque Aaron spoliasset vestibus suis, induit eis Eleazarum filium ejus.

29 Illo mortuo in montis supercilio, descendit cum Eleazaro.

30 Omnis autem multitudo videns occubuisse Aaron, flevit super eo triginta diebus per cunctas familias suas.
