1 Or il re cananeo di Arad, che abitava il mezzogiorno, avendo udito che Israele veniva per la via di Atharim, combatté contro Israele, e fece alcuni prigionieri.

2 Allora Israele fece un voto all’Eterno, e disse: "Se tu dài nelle mie mani questo popolo, le loro città saranno da me votate allo sterminio".

3 L’Eterno porse ascolto alla voce d’Israele e gli diede nelle mani i Cananei; e Israele votò allo sterminio i Cananei e le loro città, e a quel luogo fu posto nome Horma.

4 Poi gl’Israeliti si partirono dal monte Hor, movendo verso il mar Rosso per fare il giro del paese di Edom; e il popolo si fe’ impaziente nel viaggio.

5 E il popolo parlò contro Dio e contro Mosè, dicendo: "Perché ci avete fatti salire fuori d’Egitto per farci morire in questo deserto? Poiché qui non c’è né paneacqua, e l’anima nostra è nauseata di questo cibo tanto leggero".

6 Allora l’Eterno mandò fra il popolo de’ serpenti ardenti i quali mordevano la gente, e gran numero d’Israeliti morirono.

7 Allora il popolo venne a Mosè e disse: "Abbiamo peccato, perché abbiam parlato contro l’Eterno e contro te; prega l’Eterno che allontani da noi questi serpenti". E Mosè pregò per il popolo.

8 E l’Eterno disse a Mosè: "Fatti un serpente ardente, e mettilo sopra un’antenna; e avverrà che chiunque sarà morso e lo guarderà, scamperà".

9 Mosè allora fece un serpente di rame e lo mise sopra un’antenna; e avveniva che, quando un serpente avea morso qualcuno, se questi guardava il serpente di rame, scampava.

10 Poi i figliuoli d’Israele partirono e si accamparono a Oboth;

11 e partitisi da Oboth, si accamparono a Ije-Abarim nel deserto ch’è dirimpetto a Moab dal lato dove sorge il sole.

12 Di là si partirono e si accamparono nella valle di Zered.

13 Poi si partirono di là e si accamparono dall’altro lato dell’Arnon, che scorre nel deserto e nasce sui confini degli Amorei: poiché l’Arnon e il confine di Moab, fra Moab e gli Amorei.

14 Per questo è detto nel Libro delle Guerre dell’Eterno: "…Vaheb in Sufa, e le valli dell’Arnon

15 e i declivi delle valli che si estendono verso le dimore di Ar, e s’appoggiano alla frontiera di Moab".

16 E di là andarono a Beer, che è il pozzo a proposito del quale l’Eterno disse a Mosè: "Raduna il popolo e io gli darò dell’acqua".

17 Fu in quell’occasione che Israele cantò questo cantico: "Scaturisci, o pozzo! Salutatelo con canti!

18 Pozzo che i principi hanno scavato, che i nobili del popolo hanno aperto con lo scettro, coi loro bastoni!"

19 Poi dal deserto andarono a Matthana; da Matthana a Nahaliel; da Nahaliel a Bamoth,

20 e da Bamoth nella valle che è nella campagna di Moab, verso l’altura del Pisga che domina il deserto.

21 Or Israele mandò ambasciatori a Sihon, re degli Amorei, per dirgli:

22 "Lasciami passare per il tuo paese; noi non ci svieremo per i campi né per le vigne, non berremo l’acqua dei pozzi; seguiremo la strada pubblica finché abbiamo oltrepassato i tuoi confini".

23 Ma Sihon non permise a Israele di passare per i suoi confini; anzi radunò tutta la sua gente e uscì fuori contro Israele nel deserto; giunse a Jahats, e diè battaglia a Israele.

24 Israele lo sconfisse passandolo a fil di spada, e conquistò il suo paese dall’Arnon fino al Jabbok, sino ai confini de’ figliuoli di Ammon, poiché la frontiera dei figliuoli di Ammon era forte.

25 E Israele prese tutte quelle città, e abitò in tutte le città degli Amorei: in Heshbon e in tutte le città del suo territorio;

26 poiché Heshbon era la città di Sihon, re degli Amorei, il quale avea mosso guerra al precedente re di Moab, e gli avea tolto tutto il suo paese fino all’Arnon.

27 Per questo dicono i poeti: "Venite a Heshbon! La città di Sihon sia ricostruita e fortificata!

28 Poiché un fuoco è uscito da Heshbon una fiamma dalla città di Sihon; essa ha divorato Ar di Moab,

29 i padroni delle alture dell’Arnon. Guai e te, o Moab! Sei perduto, o popolo di Kemosh! Kemosh ha fatto de’ suoi figliuoli tanti fuggiaschi, e ha dato le sue figliuole come schiave a Sihon, re degli Amorei.

30 Noi abbiamo scagliato su loro le nostre frecce; Heshbon è distrutta fino a Dibon. Abbiam tutto devastato fino a Nofah, il fuoco e giunto fino a Medeba".

31 Così Israele si stabilì nel paese degli Amorei.

32 Poi Mosè mandò a esplorare Jaezer, e gl’Israeliti presero le città del suo territorio e ne cacciarono gli Amorei che vi si trovavano.

33 E, mutata direzione, risalirono il paese in direzione di Bashan; e Og, re di Bashan, uscì contro loro con tutta la sua gente per dar loro battaglia a Edrei.

34 Ma l’Eterno disse a Mosè: "Non lo temere; poiché io lo do nelle tue mani: lui, tutta la sua gente e il suo paese; trattalo com’hai trattato Sihon, re degli Amorei che abitava a Heshbon".

35 E gli Israeliti batteron lui, coi suoi figliuoli e con tutto il suo popolo, in guisa che non gli rimase più anima viva; e s’impadronirono del suo paese.

Explanation of Numbers 21      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-3. A temptation from the merely natural man, through its rational faculty, is described.

Verses 4-9. Another temptation causing distress on account of falsities from evil, during which there is a tendency to return to merely natural states, and sensual lusts prevail; but there is application to the Word, and earnest prayer for deliverance, and then revelation that the Lord's Human is to be made Divine through temptations, and that, therefore, every one in the church has power from Him, by faith, to overcome the promptings of the sensual life.

Verses 10-20. Other changes of state in which the man of the church is protected.

Verses 21-35. And lastly, he is disposed, in another state of temptation, to temporize with evils in general; but discovering his error, resists his enemies, both generally and in particular, by the help of the Lord, and thus the external man is subdued, both as to selfish love and worldly love.
