'There shall not one of these men of this froward generation see that good land which I sware to give unto your fathers, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh; he shall see it, and to him I will give the land which he hath walked in and to his children, because he hath continually followed the LORD.'

And the sixth day they gathered twice so much bread, two gomers for one man, and the rulers of the multitude came and told Moses. And he said unto them, "This is that which the LORD hath said, 'Tomorrow is the Sabbath of the holy rest of the LORD: bake that which ye will bake and fetch that ye will fetch, and that which remaineth lay up for you, and keep it till the morning." And they laid it up till the morning as Moses bade, and it stank not, neither was there any worms therein. And Moses said, "That, eat this day: for today it is the LORD's Sabbath; today ye shall find none in the field. Sixth days ye shall gather it, for the seventh is the Sabbath: there shall be none therein." Notwithstanding, there went out of the people in the seventh day for to gather: but they found none. Then the LORD said unto Moses, "How long shall it be, yer ye will keep my commandments and laws? See: because the LORD hath given you a Sabbath, therefore he giveth you, the sixth day, bread for two days. Bide therefore every man at home, and let no man go out of his place the seventh day."

These are the generations of Aaron and Moses, when the LORD spake unto Moses in Mount Sinai, and these are the names of the sons of Aaron: Nadab the eldest son, and Abihu; Eleazar and Ithamar. These are the names of the sons of Aaron which were priests anointed and their hands filled to minister,


And the whole multitude of the children of Israel, came into the desert of Zin in the first month, and the people dwelt at Kadesh. And there died Miriam, and was buried there.

Our fathers regarded not thy wonders in Egypt, neither kept they thy great goodness in remembrance, but were disobedient at the sea, even at the reed sea.

And he saved them from the adversary's hand, and delivered them from the hand of the enemy. As for those that troubled them, the waters overwhelmed them; there was not one of them left. Then believed they in his word, and sang praise unto him. But within a while they forgot his works, and would not abide his counsel. A lust came upon them in the wilderness, so that they tempted God in the desert. And he gave them their desire, but sent leanness withal into their soul. They angered Moses in the tents, and Aaron the saint of the LORD. So the earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the congregation of Abiram. The fire was kindled in their company; the flame burnt up the ungodly. They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image. Thus they turned their glory into the similitude of a calf, that eateth hay. They forgot God their Savior, which had done so great things in Egypt, wondrous works in the land of Ham, and fearful things in the reed sea. So he said he would have destroyed them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in that gap; to turn away his wrathful indignation, lest he should destroy them. Yea, they thought scorn of that pleasant land, and gave no credence unto his word, but murmured in their tents, and hearkened not unto the voice of the LORD. Then lift he up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness, to cast out their seed among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands. They joined themselves unto Baal-Peor, and ate the offerings of the dead. Thus they provoked him unto anger with their own inventions; and the plague was great among them. Then stood up Phinehas, and executed justice; and so the plague ceased. And that was counted unto him for righteousness, among all posterities for evermore. They angered him also at the waters of strife, so that he punished Moses for their sakes, because they provoked his spirit, so that he spoke unadvisedly with his lips. Neither destroyed they the Heathen, as the LORD commanded them, but were mingled among the Heathen, and learned their works - insomuch that they worshipped their idols, which turned to their own decay. Yea, they offered their sons and their daughters unto devils, and shed the innocent blood of their sons and of their daughters; whom they offered unto the idols of Canaan, so that the land was defiled with blood. Thus were they stained with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.


And they rose up early in the morning and gat them up into the top of the mountain, saying, "Lo, we be here, and will go up unto the place of which the LORD said, for we have sinned." And Moses said, "Wherefore will ye go on this manner beyond the word of the LORD? It will not come well to pass: go not up, for the LORD is not among you; that ye be not slain before your enemies. read more.
For the Amalekites and the Canaanites are there before you, and ye will fall upon the sword: because ye are turned away from the LORD, and therefore the LORD will not be with you." But they were blinded to go up into the hilltop: Neverthelater, the ark of the covenant of the LORD and Moses departed not out of the host. Then the Amalekites and the Canaanites which dwelt in that hill, came down and smote them and hewed them: even unto Hormah.

Then ye answered and said unto me, 'We have sinned against the LORD: we will go up and fight, according to all that the LORD our God commanded us.' And when ye had girded on every man his weapons of war and were ready to go up into the hills, the LORD said unto me, 'Say unto them: see that ye go not up and that ye fight not, for I am not among you: lest ye be plagued before your enemies.' And when I told you, ye would not hear: but disobeyed the mouth of the LORD, and went presumptuously up into the hills. read more.
Then the Amorites, which dwelt in those hills, came out against you and chased you as bees do, and hewed you in Seir, even unto Hormah.


And Israel sent messengers unto Sihon, king of the Amorites, saying, "Let us go through thy land; We will not turn into thy fields nor into thy vineyards, neither drink of the water of the wells: but we will go along by the common way, until we be past thy country." And Sihon would give Israel no license to pass through his country, but gathered all his people together and went out against Israel into the wilderness. And he came to Jahaz and fought with Israel.

Then I sent messengers out of the wilderness of Kedemoth unto Sihon king of Heshbon, with words of peace, saying, 'Let me go through thy land. I will go always along by the high way and will neither turn unto the right hand, nor to the left. Sell me meat, for money, for to eat; and give me drink, for money, for to drink: I will go through by foot only - read more.
as the children of Esau did unto me, which dwell in Seir, and the Moabites which dwell in Ar - until I be come over Jordan, into the land which the LORD our God giveth us.' But Sihon, the king of Heshbon, would not let us pass by him; for the LORD thy God had hardened his spirit and made his heart tough because he would deliver him into thy hands as it is come to pass this day.


And Sihon would give Israel no license to pass through his country, but gathered all his people together and went out against Israel into the wilderness. And he came to Jahaz and fought with Israel. And Israel smote him with the edge of the sword and conquered his land, from Arnon unto Jabbok: even unto the children of Ammon. For the borders of the children of Ammon are strong. And Israel took all these cities and dwelt in all the cities of the Amorites: in Heshbon and in all the towns that long thereto. read more.
For Heshbon was the city of Sihon the king of the Amorites which Sihon had fought before with the king of the Moabites, and had taken all his land out of his hand, even unto Arnon. Wherefore they that speak in proverbs say: "Go to Heshbon and let the city of Sihon be built and made ready! For there is a fire gone out of Heshbon, and a flame from the city of Sihon, and hath consumed Ar of the Moabites and the men of the hills of Arnon! Woe be to thee, Moab! O people of Chemosh, ye are forlorn! His sons are put to flight and his daughters brought captive unto Sihon, king of the Amorites! Their light is out, from Heshbon unto Dibon! And we made a wilderness even unto Nophah, which reacheth unto Medeba!" And thus Israel dwelt in the land of the Amorites. And Moses sent to search out Jazer, and they took the towns belonging thereto and conquered the Amorites that were there.

Then both Sihon and all his people came out against us unto battle at Jahaz. And the LORD set him before us, and we smote him and his sons and all his people. And we took all his cities the same season, and destroyed all the cities with men, women, and children and let nothing remain, read more.
save the cattle only we caught unto ourselves and the spoil of the cities which we took: from Aroer upon the brink of the river of Arnon, and the city in the river, unto Gilead, there was not one city too strong for us. The LORD our God delivered all unto us:


And then they turned and went up toward Bashan. And Og, the king of Bashan, came out against them, both he and all his people, to war at Edrei. And the LORD said unto Moses, "Fear him not, for I have delivered him into thy hands with all his people and his land. And thou shalt do with him as thou didst with Sihon, the king of the Amorites which dwelt at Heshbon." And they smote him and his sons and all his people, until there was nothing left him. And they conquered his land.

Then we turned and went up the way to Bashan. And Og the king of Bashan came out against us: both he and all his people to battle at Edrei. And the LORD said unto me, "Fear him not, for I have delivered him and all his people and his land into thy hand and thou shalt deal with him as thou dealtest with Sihon king of the Amorites which dwelt at Heshbon.' And so the LORD our God delivered into our hands, Og also the king of Bashan and all his folk. And we smote him until nought was left him. read more.
And we took all his cities the same season, for there was not a city which we took not from them; even three score cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan. All these cities were made strong with high walls, gates and bars; beside un-walled towns, a great many. And we utterly destroyed them, as we played with Sihon king of Heshbon: bringing to nought all the cities with men, women and children. But all the cattle and the spoil of the cities, we caught for ourselves. And thus we took, the same season, the land out of the hand of two kings of the Amorites on the other side Jordan, from the river of Arnon unto mount Hermon - which Hermon the Sidonians call Sirion, but the Amorites call it Senir - all the cities in the plain and all Gilead and all Bashan unto Salecah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan. For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of the Giants: behold, his iron bed is yet at Rabbah, among the children of Ammon: nine cubits long and four cubits broad, of the cubits of a man.


This is he that was in the congregation in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the Mount Sinai, and with our fathers. This man received the word of life to give unto us,

But come, I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring my people the children of Israel out of Egypt." And Moses said unto God, "What am I, to go to Pharaoh and to bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?" And he said, "I will be with thee. And this shall be a token unto thee that I have sent thee: after that thou hast brought the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain."

And the same brought them out showing wonders and signs in Egypt, and in the reed sea, and in the wilderness forty years.


When his father-in-law saw all that he did unto the people, he said, "What is this that thou doest unto the people? Why sittest thou thyself and lettest all the people stand about thee from morning unto even?" And Moses said unto his father-in-law, "Because the people came unto me to seek counsel of God. For when they have a matter, they come unto me, and I must judge between every man and his neighbor, and must show them the ordinances of God and his laws." read more.
And his father-in-law said unto him, "It is not well that thou doest. Thou doest unwisely and also this people that is with thee: because the thing is too grievous for thee, and thou art not able to do it thyself alone. But hear my voice, and I will give thee counsel, and God shall be with thee. Be thou unto the people to Godward, and bring the causes unto God, and provide them ordinances and laws, and show them the way wherein they must walk and the works that they must do. Moreover, seek out, among all the people, men of activity which fear God; and men that are true and hate covetousness: and make them heads over the people, captains over thousands, over hundreds, over fifty, and over ten. And let them judge the people at all seasons: If there be any great matter, let them bring that unto thee, and let them judge all small causes them selves, and ease thyself, and let them bear with thee. If thou shalt do this thing, then thou shalt be able to endure that which God chargeth thee with all, and all this people shall go to their places quietly." And Moses heard the voice of his father-in-law, and did all that he had said, and chose active men out of all Israel and made them heads over the people, captains over thousands, over hundreds, over fifty and over ten. And they judged the people at all seasons, and brought the hard causes unto Moses: and judged all small matters themselves.

And I said unto you the same season, 'I am not able to bear you myself alone. For the LORD your God hath multiplied you: so that ye are this day as the stars of heaven in number.' - The LORD God of your fathers make you a thousand times so many more as ye are, and bless you as he hath promised you - read more.
'How,' said I, 'can I myself alone bear the cumbrance, charge, and strife that is among you? Bring therefore men of wisdom and of understanding and expert, known among your tribes, that I may make them rulers over you.' And ye answered me, and said, 'That which thou hast spoken is good to be done.' And then I took the heads of your tribes, men of wisdom and that were expert, and made them rulers over you: captains over thousands and over hundreds, over fifty and over ten, and officers among your tribes.


And the LORD said unto Moses, "Gather unto me seventy of the elders of Israel, which thou knowest that they are the elders of the people and officers over them, and bring them unto the tabernacle of witness, and let them stand there with thee. And I will come down and talk with thee there, and take of the spirit which is upon thee and put upon them, and they shall bear with thee in the burden of the people, and so shalt thou not bear alone.

And Moses went out and told the people the saying of the LORD, and gathered the seventy elders of the people, and set them round about the tabernacle. And the LORD came down in a cloud and spake unto him, and took of the spirit that was upon him, and put it upon the seventy elders. And as the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied and did nought else. But there remained two of the men in the host: the one called Eldad, and the other Medad. And the spirit rested upon them for they were of them that were written, but they went not out unto the tabernacle: and they prophesied in the host. read more.
And there ran a young man and told Moses and said, "Eldad and Medad do prophesy in the host." And Joshua, the son of Nun, the servant of Moses which he had chosen out, answered and said, "Master Moses, forbid them." And Moses said unto him, "Enviest thou for my sake? Would God that all the LORD's people could prophesy, and that the LORD would put his spirit upon them." And then both Moses and the elders of Israel, gat them into the host.


Ye shall not eat one day only, either two or five days, either ten or twenty days: but even a month long, and until it come out at the nostrils of you, that ye be ready to parbreak: because that ye have cast the LORD aside which is among you, and have wept before him saying: Why came we out of Egypt?"

And there went forth a wind from the LORD and brought quails from the sea and let them fall about the host, even a day's journey round about on every side of the host, and two cubits high upon the earth. And the people stood up all that night and on the morrow, and gathered quails. And he that gathered the least, gathered ten homers full. And they killed them round about the host.


And when Moses heard the people weep in their households every man in the door of his tent, then the wrath of the LORD waxed hot exceedingly: and it grieved Moses also. And Moses said unto the LORD, "Wherefore dealest thou so cruelly with thy servant? Wherefore do I not find favour in thy sight, seeing that thou puttest the weight of this people upon me? Have I conceived all this people, or have I begotten them, that thou shouldest say unto me, 'Carry them in thy bosom, as a nurse beareth the sucking child, unto the land which thou swarest unto their fathers?' read more.
Where should I have flesh to give unto all this people? For they weep unto me saying, 'Give us flesh that we may eat.' I am not able to bear all this people alone, for it is too heavy for me. Wherefore, if thou deal thus with me; kill me, I pray thee, if I have found favour in thy sight: and let me not see my wretchedness."

And say unto the people, 'Hallow your selves against tomorrow, that ye may eat flesh, for ye have whined in the ears of the LORD saying: Who shall give us flesh to eat? For we were happy when we were in Egypt! Therefore the LORD will give you flesh, and ye shall eat. Ye shall not eat one day only, either two or five days, either ten or twenty days: but even a month long, and until it come out at the nostrils of you, that ye be ready to parbreak: because that ye have cast the LORD aside which is among you, and have wept before him saying: Why came we out of Egypt?" read more.
And Moses said, "Six hundred thousand footmen are there of the people, among which I am. And thou hast said, 'I will give them flesh and they shall eat a month long.' Shall the sheep and the oxen be slain for them to find them, either shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together to serve them?" And the LORD said unto Moses, "Is the LORD's hand waxed short? Thou shalt see whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not."


'Rise up, take your journey and go over the river Arnon. Behold, I have given into thy hand Sihon the Amorite king of Heshbon, and his land. Go to, and conquer and provoke him to battle.

And they departed thence and pitched on the other side of Arnon, which river is in the wilderness, and cometh out of the coasts of the Amorites: for Arnon is the border of Moab, between Moab and the Amorites. Wherefore it is spoken in the book of the war of the LORD, "Go with a violence, both on the river of Arnon and on the river's head, which shooteth down to dwell at Ar, and leaneth upon the coasts of Moab."



I am the same that waked thee up among the apple trees, where thy mother bare thee, where thy mother brought thee in to the world.


And he sent messengers unto Balaam the son of Beor, the interpreter, which dwelt upon the river of the land of the children of his folk; to call him, saying, "Behold, there is a people come out of Egypt which covereth the face of the earth and lie even hard by me. Come now a fellowship, and curse me this people. For they are too mighty for me, so peradventure I might be able to smite them and to drive them out of the land. For I know that whom thou blessest shall be blessed, and whom thou cursest shall be cursed."

And Balak sent again a greater company of lords, and more honorable than they. And they came to Balaam and told him, "Thus sayeth Balak, the son of Zippor: 'Oh, let nothing let thee to come unto me, for I will greatly promote thee unto great honour, and will do whatsoever thou sayest unto me! Come therefore I pray thee, curse me this people.'"


These are the numbers of the children of Israel which Moses and Eleazar the priest numbered in the fields of Moab, fast by Jordan nigh to Jericho. And among these there was not a man of the number of the children of Israel which Moses and Aaron told in the wilderness of Sinai. For the LORD said unto them, that they should die in the wilderness and that there should not be left a man of them: save Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun.

Your carcasses shall lie in this wilderness, neither shall any of these numbers which were numbered from twenty years and above of you which have murmured against me


But I have a few things against thee: that thou hast, there, they that maintain the doctrine of Balaam, which taught in Balak to put occasion of sin before the children of Israel, that they should eat of meat dedicated unto idols, and to commit fornication.

And Israel dwelt in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab, which called the people unto the sacrifice of their gods. And the people ate, and worshipped their gods, and Israel coupled himself unto Baal-Peor. Then the LORD was angry with Israel,


And the daughters of Zelophehad, the son of Heber the son of Gilead, the son of Machir the son of Manasseh, of the kindreds of Manasseh the son of Joseph - whose names were Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah and Tirzah - came and stood before Moses and Eleazar the priest and before the lords and all the multitude in the door of the tabernacle of witness, saying, "Our father died in the wilderness, and was not among the company of them that gathered themselves together against the LORD in the congregation of Korah: But died in his own sin, and had no sons. read more.
Wherefore should the name of our father's be taken away from among his kindred, because he had no son? Give unto us a possession among the brethren of our father." And Moses brought their cause before the LORD. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, "The daughters of Zelophehad speak right: thou shalt give them a possession to inherit among their father's brethren, and shalt turn the inheritance of their father unto them. And speak unto the children of Israel saying, 'If a man die and have no son, ye shall turn his inheritance unto his daughter. If he have no daughter, ye shall give his inheritance unto his brethren. If he have no brethren, ye shall give his inheritance unto his father's brethren. If he have no father's brethren, ye shall give his inheritance unto him that is next to him of his kindred, and let him possess it. And this shall be unto the children of Israel an ordinance, and a law, as the LORD hath commanded Moses.'"

And the ancient heads of the children of Gilead the son of Machir the son of Manasseh of the kindred of the children of Joseph, came forth and spake before Moses and the princes which were ancient heads among the children of Israel, and said, "The LORD commanded my lord to give the land to inherit by lot to the children of Israel. And then my lord commanded in the name of the LORD to give the inheritance of Zelophehad our brother unto his daughters. Now when any of the sons of the tribes of Israel take them to wives, then shall their inheritance be taken from the inheritance of our fathers, and shall be put unto the inheritance of the tribe in which they are and shall be taken from the lot of our inheritance. read more.
And when the free year cometh unto the children of Israel, then shall their inheritance be put unto the inheritance of the tribe where they are in, and so shall their inheritance be taken away from the inheritance of the tribe of our fathers." And Moses commanded the children of Israel at the mouth of the LORD, saying, "The tribe of the children of Joseph have said well. This, therefore, doeth the LORD: 'Command the daughters of Zelophehad, saying: let them be wives to whom they themself think best, but in the kindred of the tribe of their fathers shall they marry, that the inheritance of the children of Israel roll not from tribe to tribe. But that the children of Israel may abide, every man, in the inheritance of the tribe of his fathers.

And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tabernacle of witness, the first day of the second month, and in the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying, "Take ye the sum of all the multitude of the children of Israel, in their kindreds and households of their fathers and number them by name all that are males, poll by poll, from twenty years and above: even all that are able to go forth into war in Israel, thou and Aaron shall number them in their armies. read more.

And the children of Reuben, Israel's eldest son, in their generations, kindreds and houses of their fathers - when they were numbered every man by name, all that were males from twenty years and above, as many as were able to go forth in war - were numbered in the tribe of Reuben, forty six thousand and five hundred.

And Moses took off Aaron's clothes and put them upon Eleazar his son, and Aaron died there in the top of the mount.


The nations heard, and were afraid. Pangs came upon the Philistines. Then the dukes of the Edomites were amazed, and trembling came upon the mightiest of the Moabites, and all the inhabiters of Canaan waxed faint-hearted. Let fear and dread fall upon them through the greatness of thine arm, and let them be as still as a stone, while thy people pass through, O LORD; while the people pass through, which thou hast gotten.

and the Moabites were sore afraid of the people, because they were many; and abhorred the children of Israel.

And Moses sent messengers from Kadesh unto the king of Edom, "Thus sayeth thy brother Israel: Thou knowest all the travail that hath happened us, how our fathers went down into Egypt, and how we have dwelt in Egypt a long time, and, how the Egyptians vexed both us and our fathers. Then we cried unto the LORD and he heard our voices, and sent an angel and hath fetched us out of Egypt. And behold, we are in Kadesh, a city hard by the borders of thy country: read more.
let us go a good fellowship through thy country: we will not go through the fields nor through the vineyards, neither will we drink of the water of the fountains: but we will go by the highway and neither turn unto the right hand nor to the left, until we be past thy country." And Edom answered him, "See thou come not by me, lest I come out against thee with the sword." And the children of Israel said unto him, "We will go by the beaten way: and if either we or our cattle drink of thy water, we will pay for it, we will do no more but pass through by foot only." And he said, "Ye shall not go through." And Edom came out against him with much people and with a mighty power. And thus Edom denied to give Israel passage through his country; And Israel turned away from him.

and sent messengers unto the king of Edom saying, 'Let us, we pray thee, go through thy land.' But the king of Edom would not agree thereto. And in like manner they sent unto the king of Moab, but he would not consent. And so Israel abode still in Kadesh.


And God came unto Balaam, and said, "What men are these which are with thee?" And Balaam said unto God, "Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, hath sent unto me, saying, 'Behold, there is a people come out of Egypt and covereth the face of the earth: come now therefore and curse me them, that so peradventure I may be able to overcome them in battle, and to drive them out.'" read more.
And God said unto Balaam, "Thou shalt not go with them, neither curse the people: for they are blessed." And Balaam rose up in the morning, and said unto the lords of Balak, "Get you unto your land, for the LORD will not suffer me to go with you." And the lords of Moab rose up and went unto Balak and said, "Balaam would not come with us." And Balak sent again a greater company of lords, and more honorable than they. And they came to Balaam and told him, "Thus sayeth Balak, the son of Zippor: 'Oh, let nothing let thee to come unto me, for I will greatly promote thee unto great honour, and will do whatsoever thou sayest unto me! Come therefore I pray thee, curse me this people.'" And Balaam answered and said unto the servants of Balak, "If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I can go no further than the word of the LORD my God, to do less or more. Nevertheless tarry ye here all night: that I may know what the LORD will say unto me once more." And God came to Balaam by night and said unto him, "If the men come to fetch thee, rise up and go with them: but what I say unto thee, that only thou shalt do." And Balaam rose up early and saddled his ass and went with the lords of Moab. But God was angry because he went. And the angel of the LORD stood in the way against him. And he rode upon his ass and two servants with him. And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD stand in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand, she turned aside out of the way and went out into the field. And Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way. And the angel of the LORD went and stood in a path between the vineyards, where was a wall on the one side and another on the other. When the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she wrenched unto the wall and thrust Balaam's foot unto the wall, and he smote her again. And the angel of the LORD went further and stood in a narrow place, where was no way to turn, either to the righthand or to the left. And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she fell down under Balaam: and Balaam was wroth and smote the ass with a staff. And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, "What have I done unto thee, that thou smitest me thus three times?" And Balaam said unto the Ass, "Because thou hast mocked me! I would that I had a sword in mine hand, that I might now kill thee." And the ass said unto Balaam, "Am not I thine ass which thou hast ridden upon since thou wast born unto this day? Was I ever wont to do so unto thee?" And he said, "Nay." And the LORD opened the eyes of Balaam that he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, with his sword drawn in his hand. And he bowed himself and fell flat on his face. And the angel of the LORD said unto him, "Wherefore smitest thou thine ass this three times? Behold, I came out to resist thee, for the way is contrary unto me, and the ass saw me and avoided me three times: or else, had she not turned from me, I had surely slain thee and saved her alive." And Balaam said unto the angel of the LORD, "I have sinned: for I wist not that thou stoodest in the way against me. Now therefore if it displease thine eyes, I will turn again." And the angel said unto Balaam, "Go with the men: but in any wise, what I say unto thee, that say." And Balaam went with the lords of Balak. And when Balak heard that Balaam was come, he went out against him unto a city of Moab that stood in the border of Arnon, which was the utmost part of his country. And Balak said unto Balaam, "Did I not send for thee, to call thee? Wherefore camest thou not unto me? Thinkest thou that I am not able to promote thee unto honour?" And Balaam said unto Balak, "Lo, I am come unto thee. But I can say nothing at all, save what God putteth in my mouth that must I speak." And Balaam went with Balak, and they came unto the city of Huzoth. And Balak offered oxen and sheep, and sent for Balaam and for the lords that were with him. And on the morning Balak took Balaam and brought him up into the high place of Baal, and thence he saw unto the utmost part of the people.


And he said, "I beseech thee, show me thy glory." And he said, "I will make all my good go before thee, and I will be called in this name Jehovah before thee, and will show mercy to whom I show mercy, and will have compassion on whom I have compassion." And he said furthermore, "Thou mayest not see my face, for there shall no man see me and live." read more.
And the LORD said, "Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock, and while my glory goeth forth I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will put mine hand upon thee while I pass by. And then I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen."

And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there: and he called upon the name of the LORD. And when the LORD walked before him, he cried, "LORD, LORD God full of compassion and mercy, which art not lightly angry but abundant in mercy and truth, and keepest mercy in store for thousands, and forgivest wickedness, trespass and sin - for there is no man innocent before thee - and visitest the wickedness of the fathers upon the children and upon children's children, even unto the third and fourth generation." read more.

Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadesh Barnea to spy out the land. And I brought them word again even as I thought in mine heart.

And the Egyptians followed and went in after them to the midst of the sea, with all Pharaoh's horses, and his chariots and his horsemen. And in the morning watch, the LORD looked unto the host of the Egyptians out of the fiery and cloudy pillar, and troubled their host; and smote off their chariot wheels and cast them down to the ground. Then said the Egyptians, "Let us flee from Israel, for the LORD fighteth for them against us." read more.
Then said the LORD unto Moses, "Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the water may come again upon the Egyptians; upon their chariots and horsemen." Then stretched forth Moses his hand over the sea, and it came again to his course early in the morning, and the Egyptians fled against it. Thus the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea, and the water returned and covered the chariots and the horsemen: so that of all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them, there remained not one.

As for those that troubled them, the waters overwhelmed them; there was not one of them left.

And he said unto them, "Thus sayeth the LORD of Israel, 'Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the host: and slay every man his brother, every man his friend and every man his neighbor." read more.

Thou sentest forth thy wrath and it consumed them, even as stubble. With the breath of thine anger the water gathered together and the floods stood still as a rock, and the deep water congealed together in the midst of the sea. The enemy said, 'I will follow and overtake them, and will divide the spoil: I will satisfy my lust upon them: I will draw my sword, and mine hand shall destroy them.' Thou blewest with thy breath and the sea covered them, and they sank as lead in the mighty waters. Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among gods? Who is like thee, so glorious in holiness, fearful, laudable and that showest wonders? Thou stretchedest out thy right hand, and in the earth swallowed them.

Pangs came upon the Philistines. Then the dukes of the Edomites were amazed, and trembling came upon the mightiest of the Moabites, and all the inhabiters of Canaan waxed faint-hearted. Let fear and dread fall upon them through the greatness of thine arm, and let them be as still as a stone, while thy people pass through, O LORD; while the people pass through, which thou hast gotten. Bring them in and plant them in the mountains of thine inheritance, the place, LORD, which thou hast made for to dwell in, the sanctuary, LORD, which thy hands have prepared.

And Miriam, a prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women came out after her with timbrels in a dance.
