1 En toe die kinders van Israel, die hele vergadering, in die woestyn Sin kom, in die eerste maand, het die volk in Kades gebly. En Mirjam het daar gesterwe en is daar begrawe.

2 En daar was geen water vir die vergadering nie. Toe het hulle teen Moses en Aäron saamgekom.

3 En die volk het met Moses getwis, en hulle het gespreek en gesê: Ag, het ons tog maar gesterwe toe ons broers voor die aangesig van die HERE gesterf het!

4 En waarom het julle die vergadering van die HERE in hierdie woestyn gebring, dat ons en ons vee daar sou sterwe?

5 En waarom het julle ons uit Egipte laat optrek om ons in hierdie slegte plek te bring? Dit is geen plek van graan of van vye of van wingerdstokke of van granate nie; ook is daar geen water om te drink nie.

6 Daarop gaan Moses en Aäron van die vergadering af weg na die ingang van die tent van samekoms, en hulle het op hul aangesig geval; toe verskyn die heerlikheid van die HERE aan hulle.

7 En die HERE het met Moses gespreek en gesê:

8 Neem die staf en laat die vergadering byeenkom, jy en jou broer Aäron, en spreek julle die rots aan voor hulle ; dan sal hy sy water gee. So moet jy dan vir hulle water uit die rots laat vloei en die vergadering en hulle vee laat drink.

9 Toe neem Moses die staf voor die aangesig van die HERE weg soos Hy hom beveel het.

10 En Moses en Aäron het die vergadering voor die rots laat byeenkom, en hy het vir hulle gesê: Hoor tog, julle wederstrewiges, moet ons vir julle water uit hierdie rots laat vloei?

11 Daarop tel Moses sy hand op en hy slaan die rots twee maal met sy staf; en daar het baie water uitgekom, sodat die vergadering gedrink het en hulle vee.

12 Toe die HERE vir Moses en Aäron: Omdat julle in My nie geglo het om My voor die van die kinders van Israel te heilig nie, daarom sal julle hierdie vergadering nie in die land inbring wat Ek aan hulle gegee het nie.

13 Dit is die waters van Mériba waar die kinders van Israel met die HERE getwis het en Hy Hom onder hulle as die Heilige laat ken het.

14 Daarna het Moses uit Kades boodskappers na die koning van Edom gestuur: So jou broer Israel: Jy weet self al die moeilikheid wat ons oorgekom het.

15 Ons vaders het na Egipte afgetrek, en Ons het baie dae in Egipte gewoon, en die Egiptenaars het Ons en Ons vaders sleg behandel.

16 Toe het ons die HERE aangeroep, en Hy het ons stem gehoor: Hy het 'n Engel gestuur en ons uit Egipte uitgelei. Hier is ons nou in Kades, 'n stad op die grens van jou grondgebied.

17 Laat ons tog deur jou land trek: ons sal nie deur lande of wingerde trek nie en die water uit die putte nie drink nie; ons sal die koningsweg hou; ons sal nie regs of links uitdraai nie, totdat ons deur jou grondgebied getrek het.

18 Maar Edom antwoord hom: Jy sal deur my nie trek nie, anders sal ek jou met die swaard tegemoettrek.

19 Toe die kinders van Israel vir hom: Ons sal met die grootpad trek, en as Ons van jou water drink, ek en my vee, gee ek die prys daarvoor. Laat my net te voet deurtrek--verder niks nie.

20 Maar hy antwoord: Jy sal nie deurtrek nie. En Edom het uitgetrek hom tegemoet met baie manskappe en met 'n sterk hand.

21 So het Edom dan geweier om Israel toe te laat om deur sy grondgebied te trek. Daarop het Israel van hom af weggedraai.

22 En die kinders van Israel, die hele vergadering, het van Kades af weggetrek en by die berg Hor gekom.

23 En die HERE het met Moses en Aäron by die berg Hor, op die grens van die land Edom, gespreek en gesê:

24 Aäron sal by sy volksgenote versamel word, want hy mag nie kom in die land wat Ek aan die kinders van Israel gegee het nie, omdat julle teen my bevel wederstrewig was by die waters van Mériba.

25 Neem Aäron en sy seun Eleásar, en laat hulle op die berg Hor opklim;

26 en trek Aäron se klere uit en trek dit sy seun Eleásar aan; en Aäron sal daar by sy volksgenote versamel word en sterwe.

27 Toe het Moses gedoen soos die HERE beveel het: hulle het op die berg Hor geklim voor die van die hele vergadering.

28 En Moses het Aäron se klere uitgetrek en dit sy seun Eleásar aangetrek. En Aäron het daar gesterwe op die top van die berg, maar Moses en Eleásar het van die berg afgeklim.

29 En toe die hele vergadering sien dat Aäron gesterf het, het die hele huis van Israel Aäron beween dertig dae lank.

Explanation of Numbers 20      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verse 1. A change in the state of the church is described.

Verses 2-6. The opposition of the external to the internal man in a state of temptation, involving deficiency as to truths, and a state of discontent, contention and strife.

Verses 7-11. There is revelation, that man, as of himself, must exercise the power of interior truth in controlling the natural man, and searching the Word, that the natural man may be refreshed; and, in this case, even the internal man does this from a state of indignation; and yet there is an abundant supply of truths.

Verses 12-13. But Divine Good declares that such intelligence and affection cannot lead man to the heavenly state which is entirely from the Lord; and that even the truths of the Word in such circumstances appear to intensify the temptation.

Verses 14-21. Concerning the tendency with the man of the church, in temptation, to suppose that natural good which is selfish good, provided there be truths, is a genuine means of leading to the heavenly life.

Verses 22-29. Revelation is given that corrupted good, or merely representative worship, or external worship separated from internal, must be rejected, since it can form no part of the heavenly life.
