Deuteronomy 2:1-7 - Journey Past Seir

1 "We turned and set out for the desert on the road to the Reed Sea, just as the LORD had directed me. We traveled around Mount Seir for many days. 2 Then the LORD told me, 3 "You've walked around this mountain long enough. Turn northward 4 and command this people, "You are about to pass through the territory of your relatives, the descendants of Esau who live around Seir. They will be afraid of you so be very careful. 5 Don't fight them, because I won't give you any part of their land, not even the size of a footprint. I have given Mount Seir to Esau as their property. 6 You may buy food to eat and water to drink from them, paying with cash."' 7 Indeed, the LORD your God blessed all the works of your hands. He knows about your travels through this vast desert. The LORD your God was with you these past 40 years, so that you didn't lack anything.
