followed the LORD.
 Also the LORD was angry with me for your sakes, saying, Thou also shalt not
go in thither.
 But Joshua the son of Nun, which standeth before thee, he shall go in thither: encourage
him: for he shall cause Israel to inherit it.
 Moreover your little ones, which ye said should be a prey,
and your children, which in that day had no knowledge between good and evil, they shall go in thither,
and unto them will I give it, and they shall possess it.
 But as for you, turn you, and take your journey
into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea.
 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, ye were ready to go up into the hill.
And the LORD said unto me, Say unto them, Go not up, neither fight; for I am not among you; lest ye
be smitten before your enemies.
 So I spake unto you; and ye would not hear, but rebelled against
the commandment of the LORD, and went presumptuously up into the hill.
 And the Amorites, which
dwelt in that mountain, came out against you, and chased you, as bees do, and destroyed you in Seir,
even unto Hormah.
 And ye returned and wept before the LORD; but the LORD would not hearken to
your voice, nor give ear unto you.
 So ye abode in Kadesh many days, according unto the days that
ye abode there.
 Then we turned, and took our journey into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea, as the LORD
spake unto me: and we compassed mount Seir many days.
 And the LORD spake unto me, saying,
Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you northward.
 And command thou the people,
saying, Ye are to pass through the coast of your brethren the children of Esau, which dwell in Seir; and
they shall be afraid of you: take ye good heed unto yourselves therefore:
 Meddle not with them; for I
will not give you of their land, no, not so much as a foot breadth; because I have given mount Seir unto
Esau for a possession.
 Ye shall buy meat of them for money, that ye may eat; and ye shall also buy
water of them for money, that ye may drink.
 For the LORD thy God hath blessed thee in all the works
of thy hand: he knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness: these forty years the LORD thy God
hath been with thee; thou hast lacked nothing.
 And when we passed by from our brethren the children
of Esau, which dwelt in Seir, through the way of the plain from Elath, and from Ezion-gaber, we turned
and passed by the way of the wilderness of Moab.
 And the LORD said unto me, Distress not the
Moabites, neither contend with them in battle: for I will not give thee of their land for a possession; because
I have given Ar unto the children of Lot for a possession.
 The Emims dwelt therein in times past, a
people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims;
 Which also were accounted giants, as the Anakims; but
the Moabites call them Emims.
 The Horims also dwelt in Seir beforetime; but the children of Esau
succeeded them, when they had destroyed them from before them, and dwelt in their stead; as Israel
did unto the land of his possession, which the LORD gave unto them.
 Now rise up, said I, and get
you over the brook Zered. And we went over the brook Zered.
 And the space in which we came
from Kadesh-barnea, until we were come over the brook Zered, was thirty and eight years; until all the
generation of the men of war were wasted out from among the host, as the LORD sware unto them.
For indeed the hand of the LORD was against them, to destroy them from among the host, until they
 So it came to pass, when all the men of war were consumed and dead from among
 That the LORD spake unto me, saying,
 Thou art to pass over through Ar, the coast
of Moab, this day:
 And when thou comest nigh over against the children of Ammon, distress them
not, nor meddle with them: for I will not give thee of the land of the children of Ammon any possession; because
I have given it unto the children of Lot for a possession.
 (That also was accounted a land of giants: giants
dwelt therein in old time; and the Ammonites call them Zamzummims;
 A people great, and many, and
tall, as the Anakims; but the LORD destroyed them before them; and they succeeded them, and dwelt in
 As he did to the children of Esau, which dwelt in Seir, when he destroyed the Horims
from before them; and they succeeded them, and dwelt in their stead even unto this day:
 And the
Avims which dwelt in Hazerim, even unto Azzah, the Caphtorims, which came forth out of Caphtor, destroyed
them, and dwelt in their stead.)
 Rise ye up, take your journey, and pass over the river Arnon: behold,
I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess it, and
contend with him in battle.
 This day will I begin to put the dread of thee and the fear of thee upon
the nations that are under the whole heaven, who shall hear report of thee, and shall tremble, and be in
