brought
Exodus 12:41
And at the end of four hundred and thirty years, on that very day, all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.
Exodus 33:1
The LORD said to Moses, "Depart, go up hence, you and the people whom you have brought up out of the land of Egypt, to the land of which I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, `To your descendants I will give it.'
after
Exodus 7:1-14
1
And the LORD said to Moses, "See, I make you as God to Pharaoh; and Aaron your brother shall be your prophet.
2
You shall speak all that I command you; and Aaron your brother shall tell Pharaoh to let the people of Israel go out of his land.
3
But I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and though I multiply my signs and wonders in the land of Egypt,
4
Pharaoh will not listen to you; then I will lay my hand upon Egypt and bring forth my hosts, my people the sons of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great acts of judgment.
5
And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I stretch forth my hand upon Egypt and bring out the people of Israel from among them."
6
And Moses and Aaron did so; they did as the LORD commanded them.
7
Now Moses was eighty years old, and Aaron eighty- three years old, when they spoke to Pharaoh.
8
And the LORD said to Moses and Aaron,
9
"When Pharaoh says to you, `Prove yourselves by working a miracle,' then you shall say to Aaron, `Take your rod and cast it down before Pharaoh, that it may become a serpent.'"
10
So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did as the LORD commanded; Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and his servants, and it became a serpent.
11
Then Pharaoh summoned the wise men and the sorcerers; and they also, the magicians of Egypt, did the same by their secret arts.
12
For every man cast down his rod, and they became serpents. But Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.
13
Still Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he would not listen to them; as the LORD had said.
14
Then the LORD said to Moses, "Pharaoh's heart is hardened, he refuses to let the people go.
Deuteronomy 4:33-37
33
Did any people ever hear the voice of a god speaking out of the midst of the fire, as you have heard, and still live?
34
Or has any god ever attempted to go and take a nation for himself from the midst of another nation, by trials, by signs, by wonders, and by war, by a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, and by great terrors, according to all that the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes?
35
To you it was shown, that you might know that the LORD is God; there is no other besides him.
36
Out of heaven he let you hear his voice, that he might discipline you; and on earth he let you see his great fire, and you heard his words out of the midst of the fire.
37
And because he loved your fathers and chose their descendants after them, and brought you out of Egypt with his own presence, by his great power,
Deuteronomy 6:21
then you shall say to your son, `We were Pharaoh's slaves in Egypt; and the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand;
Deuteronomy 6:22
and the LORD showed signs and wonders, great and grievous, against Egypt and against Pharaoh and all his household, before our eyes;
Nehemiah 9:10
and didst perform signs and wonders against Pharaoh and all his servants and all the people of his land, for thou knewest that they acted insolently against our fathers; and thou didst get thee a name, as it is to this day.
Psalm 78:12
They forgot what he had done, and the miracles that he had shown them.
Psalm 78:13
In the sight of their fathers he wrought marvels in the land of Egypt, in the fields of Zo'an.
Psalm 78:42-51
42
They tested him again and again, and provoked the Holy One of Israel.
43
They did not keep in mind his power, or the day when he redeemed them from the foe;
44
when he wrought his signs in Egypt, and his miracles in the fields of Zo'an.
45
He turned their rivers to blood, so that they could not drink of their streams.
46
He sent among them swarms of flies, which devoured them, and frogs, which destroyed them.
47
He gave their crops to the caterpillar, and the fruit of their labor to the locust.
48
He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycamores with frost.
49
He gave over their cattle to the hail, and their flocks to thunderbolts.
50
He let loose on them his fierce anger, wrath, indignation, and distress, a company of destroying angels.
51
He made a path for his anger; he did not spare them from death, but gave their lives over to the plague.
Psalm 105:27-36
27
They wrought his signs among them, and miracles in the land of Ham.
28
He sent darkness, and made the land dark; they rebelled against his words.
29
He turned their waters into blood, and caused their fish to die.
30
Their land swarmed with frogs, even in the chambers of their kings.
31
He spoke, and there came swarms of flies, and gnats throughout their country.
32
He gave them hail for rain, and lightning that flashed through their land.
33
He smote their vines and fig trees, and shattered the trees of their country.
34
He spoke, and the locusts came, and young locusts without number;
35
which devoured all the vegetation in their land, and ate up the fruit of their ground.
36
He smote all the first-born in their land, the first issue of all their strength.
Psalm 106:8-11
8
Yet he saved them for his name's sake, that he might make known his mighty power.
9
He rebuked the Red Sea, and it became dry; and he led them through the deep as through a desert.
10
So he saved them from the hand of the foe, and delivered them from the power of the enemy.
11
And the waters covered their adversaries; not one of them was left.
Psalm 135:8-12
8
He it was who smote the first-born of Egypt, both of man and of beast;
9
who in thy midst, O Egypt, sent signs and wonders against Pharaoh and all his servants;
10
who smote many nations and slew mighty kings,
11
Sihon, king of the Amorites, and Og, king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan,
12
and gave their land as a heritage, a heritage to his people Israel.
Psalm 136:9-15
9
the moon and stars to rule over the night, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
10
to him who smote the first-born of Egypt, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
11
and brought Israel out from among them, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
12
with a strong hand and an outstretched arm, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
13
to him who divided the Red Sea in sunder, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
14
and made Israel pass through the midst of it, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
15
but overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red Sea, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
in the Red
Exodus 14:21
Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD drove the sea back by a strong east wind all night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.
Exodus 14:27-29
27
So Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to its wonted flow when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled into it, and the LORD routed the Egyptians in the midst of the sea.
28
The waters returned and covered the chariots and the horsemen and all the host of Pharaoh that had followed them into the sea; not so much as one of them remained.
29
But the people of Israel walked on dry ground through the sea, the waters being a wall to them on their right hand and on their left.
and in the wilderness
Exodus 15:23-25
23
When they came to Marah, they could not drink the water of Marah because it was bitter; therefore it was named Marah.
24
And the people murmured against Moses, saying, "What shall we drink?"
25
And he cried to the LORD; and the LORD showed him a tree, and he threw it into the water, and the water became sweet. There the LORD made for them a statute and an ordinance and there he proved them,
Exodus 16:1-17
1
They set out from Elim, and all the congregation of the people of Israel came to the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after they had departed from the land of Egypt.
2
And the whole congregation of the people of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness,
3
and said to them, "Would that we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the fleshpots and ate bread to the full; for you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this whole assembly with hunger."
4
Then the LORD said to Moses, "Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law or not.
5
On the sixth day, when they prepare what they bring in, it will be twice as much as they gather daily."
6
So Moses and Aaron said to all the people of Israel, "At evening you shall know that it was the LORD who brought you out of the land of Egypt,
7
and in the morning you shall see the glory of the LORD, because he has heard your murmurings against the LORD. For what are we, that you murmur against us?"
8
And Moses said, "When the LORD gives you in the evening flesh to eat and in the morning bread to the full, because the LORD has heard your murmurings which you murmur against him--what are we? Your murmurings are not against us but against the LORD."
9
And Moses said to Aaron, "Say to the whole congregation of the people of Israel, `Come near before the LORD, for he has heard your murmurings.'"
10
And as Aaron spoke to the whole congregation of the people of Israel, they looked toward the wilderness, and behold, the glory of the LORD appeared in the cloud.
11
And the LORD said to Moses,
12
"I have heard the murmurings of the people of Israel; say to them, `At twilight you shall eat flesh, and in the morning you shall be filled with bread; then you shall know that I am the LORD your God.'"
13
In the evening quails came up and covered the camp; and in the morning dew lay round about the camp.
14
And when the dew had gone up, there was on the face of the wilderness a fine, flake-like thing, fine as hoarfrost on the ground.
15
When the people of Israel saw it, they said to one another, "What is it?" For they did not know what it was. And Moses said to them, "It is the bread which the LORD has given you to eat.
16
This is what the LORD has commanded: `Gather of it, every man of you, as much as he can eat; you shall take an omer apiece, according to the number of the persons whom each of you has in his tent.'"
17
And the people of Israel did so; they gathered, some more, some less.
Exodus 19:1-20
1
On the third new moon after the people of Israel had gone forth out of the land of Egypt, on that day they came into the wilderness of Sinai.
2
And when they set out from Reph'idim and came into the wilderness of Sinai, they encamped in the wilderness; and there Israel encamped before the mountain.
3
And Moses went up to God, and the LORD called to him out of the mountain, saying, "Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the people of Israel:
4
You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles' wings and brought you to myself.
5
Now therefore, if you will obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my own possession among all peoples; for all the earth is mine,
6
and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel."
7
So Moses came and called the elders of the people, and set before them all these words which the LORD had commanded him.
8
And all the people answered together and said, "All that the LORD has spoken we will do." And Moses reported the words of the people to the LORD.
9
And the LORD said to Moses, "Lo, I am coming to you in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with you, and may also believe you for ever." Then Moses told the words of the people to the LORD.
10
And the LORD said to Moses, "Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their garments,
11
and be ready by the third day; for on the third day the LORD will come down upon Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people.
12
And you shall set bounds for the people round about, saying, `Take heed that you do not go up into the mountain or touch the border of it; whoever touches the mountain shall be put to death;
13
no hand shall touch him, but he shall be stoned or shot; whether beast or man, he shall not live.' When the trumpet sounds a long blast, they shall come up to the mountain."
14
So Moses went down from the mountain to the people, and consecrated the people; and they washed their garments.
15
And he said to the people, "Be ready by the third day; do not go near a woman."
16
On the morning of the third day there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast, so that all the people who were in the camp trembled.
17
Then Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet God; and they took their stand at the foot of the mountain.
18
And Mount Sinai was wrapped in smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire; and the smoke of it went up like the smoke of a kiln, and the whole mountain quaked greatly.
19
And as the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder, Moses spoke, and God answered him in thunder.
20
And the LORD came down upon Mount Sinai, to the top of the mountain; and the LORD called Moses to the top of the mountain, and Moses went up.
Numbers 9:15-23
15
On the day that the tabernacle was set up, the cloud covered the tabernacle, the tent of the testimony; and at evening it was over the tabernacle like the appearance of fire until morning.
16
So it was continually; the cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.
17
And whenever the cloud was taken up from over the tent, after that the people of Israel set out; and in the place where the cloud settled down, there the people of Israel encamped.
18
At the command of the LORD the people of Israel set out, and at the command of the LORD they encamped; as long as the cloud rested over the tabernacle, they remained in camp.
19
Even when the cloud continued over the tabernacle many days, the people of Israel kept the charge of the LORD, and did not set out.
20
Sometimes the cloud was a few days over the tabernacle, and according to the command of the LORD they remained in camp; then according to the command of the LORD they set out.
21
And sometimes the cloud remained from evening until morning; and when the cloud was taken up in the morning, they set out, or if it continued for a day and a night, when the cloud was taken up they set out.
22
Whether it was two days, or a month, or a longer time, that the cloud continued over the tabernacle, abiding there, the people of Israel remained in camp and did not set out; but when it was taken up they set out.
23
At the command of the LORD they encamped, and at the command of the LORD they set out; they kept the charge of the LORD, at the command of the LORD by Moses.
Numbers 11:1-35
1
And the people complained in the hearing of the LORD about their misfortunes; and when the LORD heard it, his anger was kindled, and the fire of the LORD burned among them, and consumed some outlying parts of the camp.
2
Then the people cried to Moses; and Moses prayed to the LORD, and the fire abated.
3
So the name of that place was called Tab'erah, because the fire of the LORD burned among them.
4
Now the rabble that was among them had a strong craving; and the people of Israel also wept again, and said, "O that we had meat to eat!
5
We remember the fish we ate in Egypt for nothing, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic;
6
but now our strength is dried up, and there is nothing at all but this manna to look at."
7
Now the manna was like coriander seed, and its appearance like that of bdellium.
8
The people went about and gathered it, and ground it in mills or beat it in mortars, and boiled it in pots, and made cakes of it; and the taste of it was like the taste of cakes baked with oil.
9
When the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna fell with it.
10
Moses heard the people weeping throughout their families, every man at the door of his tent; and the anger of the LORD blazed hotly, and Moses was displeased.
11
Moses said to the LORD, "Why hast thou dealt ill with thy servant? And why have I not found favor in thy sight, that thou dost lay the burden of all this people upon me?
12
Did I conceive all this people? Did I bring them forth, that thou shouldst say to me, `Carry them in your bosom, as a nurse carries the sucking child, to the land which thou didst swear to give their fathers?'
13
Where am I to get meat to give to all this people? For they weep before me and say, `Give us meat, that we may eat.'
14
I am not able to carry all this people alone, the burden is too heavy for me.
15
If thou wilt deal thus with me, kill me at once, if I find favor in thy sight, that I may not see my wretchedness."
16
And the LORD said to Moses, "Gather for me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom you know to be the elders of the people and officers over them; and bring them to the tent of meeting, and let them take their stand there with you.
17
And I will come down and talk with you there; and I will take some of the spirit which is upon you and put it upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with you, that you may not bear it yourself alone.
18
And say to the people, `Consecrate yourselves for tomorrow, and you shall eat meat; for you have wept in the hearing of the LORD, saying, "Who will give us meat to eat? For it was well with us in Egypt." Therefore the LORD will give you meat, and you shall eat.
19
You shall not eat one day, or two days, or five days, or ten days, or twenty days,
20
but a whole month, until it comes out at your nostrils and becomes loathsome to you, because you have rejected the LORD who is among you, and have wept before him, saying, "Why did we come forth out of Egypt?"'"
21
But Moses said, "The people among whom I am number six hundred thousand on foot; and thou hast said, `I will give them meat, that they may eat a whole month!'
22
Shall flocks and herds be slaughtered for them, to suffice them? Or shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them, to suffice them?"
23
And the LORD said to Moses, "Is the LORD's hand shortened? Now you shall see whether my word will come true for you or not."
24
So Moses went out and told the people the words of the LORD; and he gathered seventy men of the elders of the people, and placed them round about the tent.
25
Then the LORD came down in the cloud and spoke to him, and took some of the spirit that was upon him and put it upon the seventy elders; and when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied. But they did so no more.
26
Now two men remained in the camp, one named Eldad, and the other named Medad, and the spirit rested upon them; they were among those registered, but they had not gone out to the tent, and so they prophesied in the camp.
27
And a young man ran and told Moses, "Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp."
28
And Joshua the son of Nun, the minister of Moses, one of his chosen men, said, "My lord Moses, forbid them."
29
But Moses said to him, "Are you jealous for my sake? Would that all the LORD's people were prophets, that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!"
30
And Moses and the elders of Israel returned to the camp.
31
And there went forth a wind from the LORD, and it brought quails from the sea, and let them fall beside the camp, about a day's journey on this side and a day's journey on the other side, round about the camp, and about two cubits above the face of the earth.
32
And the people rose all that day, and all night, and all the next day, and gathered the quails; he who gathered least gathered ten homers; and they spread them out for themselves all around the camp.
33
While the meat was yet between their teeth, before it was consumed, the anger of the LORD was kindled against the people, and the LORD smote the people with a very great plague.
34
Therefore the name of that place was called Kib'roth-hatta'avah, because there they buried the people who had the craving.
35
From Kib'roth-hatta'avah the people journeyed to Haze'roth; and they remained at Haze'roth.
Numbers 14:1-45
1
Then all the congregation raised a loud cry; and the people wept that night.
2
And all the people of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron; the whole congregation said to them, "Would that we had died in the land of Egypt! Or would that we had died in this wilderness!
3
Why does the LORD bring us into this land, to fall by the sword? Our wives and our little ones will become a prey; would it not be better for us to go back to Egypt?"
4
And they said to one another, "Let us choose a captain, and go back to Egypt."
5
Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the people of Israel.
6
And Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephun'neh, who were among those who had spied out the land, rent their clothes,
7
and said to all the congregation of the people of Israel, "The land, which we passed through to spy it out, is an exceedingly good land.
8
If the LORD delights in us, he will bring us into this land and give it to us, a land which flows with milk and honey.
9
Only, do not rebel against the LORD; and do not fear the people of the land, for they are bread for us; their protection is removed from them, and the LORD is with us; do not fear them."
10
But all the congregation said to stone them with stones. Then the glory of the LORD appeared at the tent of meeting to all the people of Israel.
11
And the LORD said to Moses, "How long will this people despise me? And how long will they not believe in me, in spite of all the signs which I have wrought among them?
12
I will strike them with the pestilence and disinherit them, and I will make of you a nation greater and mightier than they."
13
But Moses said to the LORD, "Then the Egyptians will hear of it, for thou didst bring up this people in thy might from among them,
14
and they will tell the inhabitants of this land. They have heard that thou, O LORD, art in the midst of this people; for thou, O LORD, art seen face to face, and thy cloud stands over them and thou goest before them, in a pillar of cloud by day and in a pillar of fire by night.
15
Now if thou dost kill this people as one man, then the nations who have heard thy fame will say,
16
`Because the LORD was not able to bring this people into the land which he swore to give to them, therefore he has slain them in the wilderness.'
17
And now, I pray thee, let the power of the LORD be great as thou hast promised, saying,
18
`The LORD is slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love, forgiving iniquity and transgression, but he will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of fathers upon children, upon the third and upon the fourth generation.'
19
Pardon the iniquity of this people, I pray thee, according to the greatness of thy steadfast love, and according as thou hast forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now."
20
Then the LORD said, "I have pardoned, according to your word;
21
but truly, as I live, and as all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD,
22
none of the men who have seen my glory and my signs which I wrought in Egypt and in the wilderness, and yet have put me to the proof these ten times and have not hearkened to my voice,
23
shall see the land which I swore to give to their fathers; and none of those who despised me shall see it.
24
But my servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit and has followed me fully, I will bring into the land into which he went, and his descendants shall possess it.
25
Now, since the Amal'ekites and the Canaanites dwell in the valleys, turn tomorrow and set out for the wilderness by the way to the Red Sea."
26
And the LORD said to Moses and to Aaron,
27
"How long shall this wicked congregation murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the people of Israel, which they murmur against me.
28
Say to them, `As I live,' says the LORD, `what you have said in my hearing I will do to you:
29
your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness; and of all your number, numbered from twenty years old and upward, who have murmured against me,
30
not one shall come into the land where I swore that I would make you dwell, except Caleb the son of Jephun'neh and Joshua the son of Nun.
31
But your little ones, who you said would become a prey, I will bring in, and they shall know the land which you have despised.
32
But as for you, your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness.
33
And your children shall be shepherds in the wilderness forty years, and shall suffer for your faithlessness, until the last of your dead bodies lies in the wilderness.
34
According to the number of the days in which you spied out the land, forty days, for every day a year, you shall bear your iniquity, forty years, and you shall know my displeasure.'
35
I, the LORD, have spoken; surely this will I do to all this wicked congregation that are gathered together against me: in this wilderness they shall come to a full end, and there they shall die."
36
And the men whom Moses sent to spy out the land, and who returned and made all the congregation to murmur against him by bringing up an evil report against the land,
37
the men who brought up an evil report of the land, died by plague before the LORD.
38
But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephun'neh remained alive, of those men who went to spy out the land.
39
And Moses told these words to all the people of Israel, and the people mourned greatly.
40
And they rose early in the morning, and went up to the heights of the hill country, saying, "See, we are here, we will go up to the place which the LORD has promised; for we have sinned."
41
But Moses said, "Why now are you transgressing the command of the LORD, for that will not succeed?
42
Do not go up lest you be struck down before your enemies, for the LORD is not among you.
43
For there the Amal'ekites and the Canaanites are before you, and you shall fall by the sword; because you have turned back from following the LORD, the LORD will not be with you."
44
But they presumed to go up to the heights of the hill country, although neither the ark of the covenant of the LORD, nor Moses, departed out of the camp.
45
Then the Amal'ekites and the Canaanites who dwelt in that hill country came down, and defeated them and pursued them, even to Hormah.
Numbers 16:1-17
1
Now Korah the son of Izhar, son of Kohath, son of Levi, and Dathan and Abi'ram the sons of Eli'ab, and On the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben,
2
took men; and they rose up before Moses, with a number of the people of Israel, two hundred and fifty leaders of the congregation, chosen from the assembly, well-known men;
3
and they assembled themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said to them, "You have gone too far! For all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the LORD is among them; why then do you exalt yourselves above the assembly of the LORD?"
4
When Moses heard it, he fell on his face;
5
and he said to Korah and all his company, "In the morning the LORD will show who is his, and who is holy, and will cause him to come near to him; him whom he will choose he will cause to come near to him.
6
Do this: take censers, Korah and all his company;
7
put fire in them and put incense upon them before the LORD tomorrow, and the man whom the LORD chooses shall be the holy one. You have gone too far, sons of Levi!"
8
And Moses said to Korah, "Hear now, you sons of Levi:
9
is it too small a thing for you that the God of Israel has separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to himself, to do service in the tabernacle of the LORD, and to stand before the congregation to minister to them;
10
and that he has brought you near him, and all your brethren the sons of Levi with you? And would you seek the priesthood also?
11
Therefore it is against the LORD that you and all your company have gathered together; what is Aaron that you murmur against him?"
12
And Moses sent to call Dathan and Abi'ram the sons of Eli'ab; and they said, "We will not come up.
13
Is it a small thing that you have brought us up out of a land flowing with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, that you must also make yourself a prince over us?
14
Moreover you have not brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey, nor given us inheritance of fields and vineyards. Will you put out the eyes of these men? We will not come up."
15
And Moses was very angry, and said to the LORD, "Do not respect their offering. I have not taken one ass from them, and I have not harmed one of them."
16
And Moses said to Korah, "Be present, you and all your company, before the LORD, you and they, and Aaron, tomorrow;
17
and let every one of you take his censer, and put incense upon it, and every one of you bring before the LORD his censer, two hundred and fifty censers; you also, and Aaron, each his censer."
Numbers 20:1-21
1
And the people of Israel, the whole congregation, came into the wilderness of Zin in the first month, and the people stayed in Kadesh; and Miriam died there, and was buried there.
2
Now there was no water for the congregation; and they assembled themselves together against Moses and against Aaron.

And the people contended with Moses, and said, "Would that we had died when our brethren died before the LORD!
4
Why have you brought the assembly of the LORD into this wilderness, that we should die here, both we and our cattle?
5
And why have you made us come up out of Egypt, to bring us to this evil place? It is no place for grain, or figs, or vines, or pomegranates; and there is no water to drink."
6
Then Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly to the door of the tent of meeting, and fell on their faces. And the glory of the LORD appeared to them,
7
and the LORD said to Moses,
8
"Take the rod, and assemble the congregation, you and Aaron your brother, and tell the rock before their eyes to yield its water; so you shall bring water out of the rock for them; so you shall give drink to the congregation and their cattle."
9
And Moses took the rod from before the LORD, as he commanded him.
10
And Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly together before the rock, and he said to them, "Hear now, you rebels; shall we bring forth water for you out of this rock?"
11
And Moses lifted up his hand and struck the rock with his rod twice; and water came forth abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their cattle.
12
And the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "Because you did not believe in me, to sanctify me in the eyes of the people of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them."
13
These are the waters of Mer'ibah, where the people of Israel contended with the LORD, and he showed himself holy among them.
14
Moses sent messengers from Kadesh to the king of Edom, "Thus says your brother Israel: You know all the adversity that has befallen us:
15
how our fathers went down to Egypt, and we dwelt in Egypt a long time; and the Egyptians dealt harshly with us and our fathers;
16
and when we cried to the LORD, he heard our voice, and sent an angel and brought us forth out of Egypt; and here we are in Kadesh, a city on the edge of your territory.
17
Now let us pass through your land. We will not pass through field or vineyard, neither will we drink water from a well; we will go along the King's Highway, we will not turn aside to the right hand or to the left, until we have passed through your territory."
18
But Edom said to him, "You shall not pass through, lest I come out with the sword against you."
19
And the people of Israel said to him, "We will go up by the highway; and if we drink of your water, I and my cattle, then I will pay for it; let me only pass through on foot, nothing more."
20
But he said, "You shall not pass through." And Edom came out against them with many men, and with a strong force.
21
Thus Edom refused to give Israel passage through his territory; so Israel turned away from him.
Deuteronomy 2:25-37
25
This day I will begin to put the dread and fear of you upon the peoples that are under the whole heaven, who shall hear the report of you and shall tremble and be in anguish because of you.'
26
"So I sent messengers from the wilderness of Ked'emoth to Sihon the king of Heshbon, with words of peace, saying,
27
`Let me pass through your land; I will go only by the road, I will turn aside neither to the right nor to the left.
28
You shall sell me food for money, that I may eat, and give me water for money, that I may drink; only let me pass through on foot,
29
as the sons of Esau who live in Se'ir and the Moabites who live in Ar did for me, until I go over the Jordan into the land which the LORD our God gives to us.'
30
But Sihon the king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him; for the LORD your God hardened his spirit and made his heart obstinate, that he might give him into your hand, as at this day.
31
And the LORD said to me, `Behold, I have begun to give Sihon and his land over to you; begin to take possession, that you may occupy his land.'
32
Then Sihon came out against us, he and all his people, to battle at Jahaz.
33
And the LORD our God gave him over to us; and we defeated him and his sons and all his people.
34
And we captured all his cities at that time and utterly destroyed every city, men, women, and children; we left none remaining;
35
only the cattle we took as spoil for ourselves, with the booty of the cities which we captured.
36
From Aro'er, which is on the edge of the valley of the Arnon, and from the city that is in the valley, as far as Gilead, there was not a city too high for us; the LORD our God gave all into our hands.
37
Only to the land of the sons of Ammon you did not draw near, that is, to all the banks of the river Jabbok and the cities of the hill country, and wherever the LORD our God forbade us.
Deuteronomy 8:4
Your clothing did not wear out upon you, and your foot did not swell, these forty years.
Nehemiah 9:12-15
12
By a pillar of cloud thou didst lead them in the day, and by a pillar of fire in the night to light for them the way in which they should go.
13
Thou didst come down upon Mount Sinai, and speak with them from heaven and give them right ordinances and true laws, good statutes and commandments,
14
and thou didst make known to them thy holy sabbath and command them commandments and statutes and a law by Moses thy servant.
15
Thou didst give them bread from heaven for their hunger and bring forth water for them from the rock for their thirst, and thou didst tell them to go in to possess the land which thou hadst sworn to give them.
Nehemiah 9:18-22
18
Even when they had made for themselves a molten calf and said, `This is your God who brought you up out of Egypt,' and had committed great blasphemies,
19
thou in thy great mercies didst not forsake them in the wilderness; the pillar of cloud which led them in the way did not depart from them by day, nor the pillar of fire by night which lighted for them the way by which they should go.
20
Thou gavest thy good Spirit to instruct them, and didst not withhold thy manna from their mouth, and gavest them water for their thirst.
21
Forty years didst thou sustain them in the wilderness, and they lacked nothing; their clothes did not wear out and their feet did not swell.
22
And thou didst give them kingdoms and peoples, and didst allot to them every corner; so they took possession of the land of Sihon king of Heshbon and the land of Og king of Bashan.
Psalm 78:14-33
14
He divided the sea and let them pass through it, and made the waters stand like a heap.
15
In the daytime he led them with a cloud, and all the night with a fiery light.
16
He cleft rocks in the wilderness, and gave them drink abundantly as from the deep.
17
He made streams come out of the rock, and caused waters to flow down like rivers.
18
Yet they sinned still more against him, rebelling against the Most High in the desert.
19
They tested God in their heart by demanding the food they craved.
20
They spoke against God, saying, "Can God spread a table in the wilderness?
21
He smote the rock so that water gushed out and streams overflowed. Can he also give bread, or provide meat for his people?"
22
Therefore, when the LORD heard, he was full of wrath; a fire was kindled against Jacob, his anger mounted against Israel;
23
because they had no faith in God, and did not trust his saving power.
24
Yet he commanded the skies above, and opened the doors of heaven;
25
and he rained down upon them manna to eat, and gave them the grain of heaven.
26
Man ate of the bread of the angels; he sent them food in abundance.
27
He caused the east wind to blow in the heavens, and by his power he led out the south wind;
28
he rained flesh upon them like dust, winged birds like the sand of the seas;
29
he let them fall in the midst of their camp, all around their habitations.
30
And they ate and were well filled, for he gave them what they craved.
31
But before they had sated their craving, while the food was still in their mouths,
32
the anger of God rose against them and he slew the strongest of them, and laid low the picked men of Israel.
33
In spite of all this they still sinned; despite his wonders they did not believe.
Psalm 105:39-45
39
He spread a cloud for a covering, and fire to give light by night.
40
They asked, and he brought quails, and gave them bread from heaven in abundance.
41
He opened the rock, and water gushed forth; it flowed through the desert like a river.
42
For he remembered his holy promise, and Abraham his servant.
43
So he led forth his people with joy, his chosen ones with singing.
44
And he gave them the lands of the nations; and they took possession of the fruit of the peoples' toil,
45
to the end that they should keep his statutes, and observe his laws. Praise the LORD!
Psalm 106:17
the earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abi'ram.
Psalm 106:18
Fire also broke out in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.
Psalm 135:10-12
10
who smote many nations and slew mighty kings,
11
Sihon, king of the Amorites, and Og, king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan,
12
and gave their land as a heritage, a heritage to his people Israel.
Psalm 136:16-21
16
to him who led his people through the wilderness, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
17
to him who smote great kings, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
18
and slew famous kings, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
19
Sihon, king of the Amorites, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
20
and Og, king of Bashan, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
21
and gave their land as a heritage, for his steadfast love endures for ever;
