04, Numbers 21-22

Numbers 21

1 And when king Arad the Canaanite, which dwelt in the south, heard tell that Israel came by the way of the spies; then he fought against Israel, and took some of them prisoners. 10 I View Tool
2 And Israel vowed a vow unto the Lord, and said, If thou wilt indeed deliver this people into my hand, then I will utterly destroy their cities. 10 I View Tool
3 And the Lord hearkened to the voice of Israel, and delivered up the Canaanites; and they utterly destroyed them and their cities: and he called the name of the place Hormah. 12 I View Tool
4 And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way. 10 I View Tool
5 And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread. 12 I View Tool
6 And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. 12 I View Tool
7 Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. 10 I View Tool
8 And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. 12 I View Tool
9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived. 10 I View Tool
10 And the children of Israel set forward, and pitched in Oboth. 10 I View Tool
11 And they journeyed from Oboth, and pitched at Ijeabarim, in the wilderness which is before Moab, toward the sunrising. 10 I View Tool
12 From thence they removed, and pitched in the valley of Zared. 10 I View Tool
13 From thence they removed, and pitched on the other side of Arnon, which is in the wilderness that cometh out of the coasts of the Amorites: for Arnon is the border of Moab, between Moab and the Amorites. 10 I View Tool
14 Wherefore it is said in the book of the wars of the Lord, What he did in the Red sea, and in the brooks of Arnon, 10 I View Tool
15 And at the stream of the brooks that goeth down to the dwelling of Ar, and lieth upon the border of Moab. 10 I View Tool
16 And from thence they went to Beer: that is the well whereof the Lord spake unto Moses, Gather the people together, and I will give them water. 12 I View Tool
17 Then Israel sang this song, Spring up, O well; sing ye unto it: 12 I View Tool
18 The princes digged the well, the nobles of the people digged it, by the direction of the lawgiver, with their staves. And from the wilderness they went to Mattanah: 10 I View Tool
19 And from Mattanah to Nahaliel: and from Nahaliel to Bamoth: 10 I View Tool
20 And from Bamoth in the valley, that is in the country of Moab, to the top of Pisgah, which looketh toward Jeshimon. 10 I View Tool
21 And Israel sent messengers unto Sihon king of the Amorites, saying, 10 I View Tool
22 Let me pass through thy land: we will not turn into the fields, or into the vineyards; we will not drink of the waters of the well: but we will go along by the king's high way, until we be past thy borders. 10 I View Tool
23 And Sihon would not suffer Israel to pass through his border: but Sihon gathered all his people together, and went out against Israel into the wilderness: and he came to Jahaz, and fought against Israel. 10 I View Tool
24 And Israel smote him with the edge of the sword, and possessed his land from Arnon unto Jabbok, even unto the children of Ammon: for the border of the children of Ammon was strong. 10 I View Tool
25 And Israel took all these cities: and Israel dwelt in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all the villages thereof. 10 I View Tool
26 For Heshbon was the city of Sihon the king of the Amorites, who had fought against the former king of Moab, and taken all his land out of his hand, even unto Arnon. 10 I View Tool
27 Wherefore they that speak in proverbs say, Come into Heshbon, let the city of Sihon be built and prepared: 10 I View Tool
28 For there is a fire gone out of Heshbon, a flame from the city of Sihon: it hath consumed ar of Moab, and the lords of the high places of Arnon. 10 I View Tool
29 Woe to thee, Moab! thou art undone, O people of Chemosh: he hath given his sons that escaped, and his daughters, into captivity unto Sihon king of the Amorites. 10 I View Tool
30 We have shot at them; Heshbon is perished even unto Dibon, and we have laid them waste even unto Nophah, which reacheth unto Medeba. 10 I View Tool
31 Thus Israel dwelt in the land of the Amorites. 10 I View Tool
32 And Moses sent to spy out Jaazer, and they took the villages thereof, and drove out the Amorites that were there. 10 I View Tool
33 And they turned and went up by the way of Bashan: and og the king of bashan went out against them, he, and all his people, to the battle at edrei. 10 I View Tool
34 And the Lord said unto Moses, Fear him not: for I have delivered him into thy hand, and all his people, and his land; and thou shalt do to him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon. 10 I View Tool
35 So they smote him, and his sons, and all his people, until there was none left him alive: and they possessed his land. 10 I View Tool

 

Numbers 22

1 And the children of Israel set forward, and pitched in the plains of Moab on this side Jordan by Jericho. 11 I View Tool
2 And Balak the son of Zippor saw all that Israel had done to the Amorites. 10 I View Tool
3 And Moab was sore afraid of the people, because they were many: and Moab was distressed because of the children of Israel. 10 I View Tool
4 And Moab said unto the elders of Midian, Now shall this company lick up all that are round about us, as the ox licketh up the grass of the field. And Balak the son of Zippor was king of the Moabites at that time. 10 I View Tool
5 He sent messengers therefore unto Balaam the son of Beor to Pethor, which is by the river of the land of the children of his people, to call him, saying, Behold, there is a people come out from Egypt: behold, they cover the face of the earth, and they abide over against me: 10 I View Tool
6 Come now therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people; for they are too mighty for me: peradventure I shall prevail, that we may smite them, and that I may drive them out of the land: for I wot that he whom thou blessest is blessed, and he whom thou cursest is cursed. 10 I View Tool
7 And the elders of Moab and the elders of Midian departed with the rewards of divination in their hand; and they came unto Balaam, and spake unto him the words of Balak. 10 I View Tool
8 And he said unto them, Lodge here this night, and I will bring you word again, as the Lord shall speak unto me: and the princes of Moab abode with Balaam. 10 I View Tool
9 And God came unto Balaam, and said, What men are these with thee? 10 I View Tool
10 And Balaam said unto God, Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, hath sent unto me, saying, 10 I View Tool
11 Behold, there is a people come out of Egypt, which covereth the face of the earth: come now, curse me them; peradventure I shall be able to overcome them, and drive them out. 10 I View Tool
12 And God said unto Balaam, Thou shalt not go with them; thou shalt not curse the people: for they are blessed. 10 I View Tool
13 And Balaam rose up in the morning, and said unto the princes of Balak, Get you into your land: for the Lord refuseth to give me leave to go with you. 10 I View Tool
14 And the princes of Moab rose up, and they went unto Balak, and said, Balaam refuseth to come with us. 10 I View Tool
15 And Balak sent yet again princes, more, and more honourable than they. 10 I View Tool
16 And they came to Balaam, and said to him, Thus saith Balak the son of Zippor, Let nothing, I pray thee, hinder thee from coming unto me: 10 I View Tool
17 For I will promote thee unto very great honour, and I will do whatsoever thou sayest unto me: come therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people. 10 I View Tool
18 And Balaam answered and said unto the servants of Balak, If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond the word of the Lord my God, to do less or more. 10 I View Tool
19 Now therefore, I pray you, tarry ye also here this night, that I may know what the Lord will say unto me more. 10 I View Tool
20 And God came unto Balaam at night, and said unto him, If the men come to call thee, rise up, and go with them; but yet the word which I shall say unto thee, that shalt thou do. 10 I View Tool
21 And Balaam rose up in the morning, and saddled his ass, and went with the princes of Moab. 10 I View Tool
22 And God's anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the Lord stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him. 10 I View Tool
23 And the ass saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way. 10 I View Tool
24 But the angel of the Lord stood in a path of the vineyards, a wall being on this side, and a wall on that side. 10 I View Tool
25 And when the ass saw the angel of the Lord, she thrust herself unto the wall, and crushed Balaam's foot against the wall: and he smote her again. 10 I View Tool
26 And the angel of the Lord went further, and stood in a narrow place, where was no way to turn either to the right hand or to the left. 10 I View Tool
27 And when the ass saw the angel of the Lord, she fell down under Balaam: and Balaam's anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with a staff. 10 I View Tool
28 And the Lord opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times? 10 I View Tool
29 And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee. 10 I View Tool
30 And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee? and he said, Nay. 10 I View Tool
31 Then the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face. 10 I View Tool
32 And the angel of the Lord said unto him, Wherefore hast thou smitten thine ass these three times? behold, I went out to withstand thee, because thy way is perverse before me: 10 I View Tool
33 And the ass saw me, and turned from me these three times: unless she had turned from me, surely now also I had slain thee, and saved her alive. 10 I View Tool
34 And Balaam said unto the angel of the Lord, I have sinned; for I knew not that thou stoodest in the way against me: now therefore, if it displease thee, I will get me back again. 10 I View Tool
35 And the angel of the Lord said unto Balaam, Go with the men: but only the word that I shall speak unto thee, that thou shalt speak. So Balaam went with the princes of Balak. 10 I View Tool
36 And when Balak heard that Balaam was come, he went out to meet him unto a city of Moab, which is in the border of Arnon, which is in the utmost coast. 10 I View Tool
37 And Balak said unto Balaam, Did I not earnestly send unto thee to call thee? wherefore camest thou not unto me? am I not able indeed to promote thee to honour? 10 I View Tool
38 And Balaam said unto Balak, Lo, I am come unto thee: have I now any power at all to say any thing? the word that God putteth in my mouth, that shall I speak. 10 I View Tool
39 And Balaam went with Balak, and they came unto Kirjathhuzoth. 10 I View Tool
40 And Balak offered oxen and sheep, and sent to Balaam, and to the princes that were with him. 10 I View Tool
41 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Balak took Balaam, and brought him up into the high places of Baal, that thence he might see the utmost part of the people. 10 I View Tool
