Numbers 21
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And the Canaanite King of Gadar who dwelt in the south heard that Israel came on the road of the spies and fought with Israel and he brought some of them captive into captivity. 2And Israel vowed a vow to LORD JEHOVAH and said, “If you will hand over this people into my hands, I shall destroy their towns utterly.” 3And LORD JEHOVAH listened to the voice of Israel and delivered the Canaanites into their hands and they killed them by the sword and utterly destroyed them and their towns, and they called the name of country that KharmaDestruction.

4And they picked up from Hor Mountain in the way of the Sea of Reeds to its surrounding land of Adum, and the soul of the people was wearied in the road. 5And the people complained against God and against Moshe and they said, “Why did you bring us out from Egypt that we should die in the wilderness, because there is no bread and no water and our soul is weary of the small bread?”

6And LORD JEHOVAH sent destructive snakes against the people and they bit the people and many of the people of Israel died. 7And the people came to Moshe and they said to him: “We have sinned, for we have complained against LORD JEHOVAH, also against you; pray before LORD JEHOVAH and he will remove the snakes from us.” And Moshe prayed for the people. 8And LORD JEHOVAH said to Moshe: “Make for yourself a destructive serpent of brass, and set it for a sign, and everyone whom a Serpent will bite shall look at it and he shall live.” 9And Moshe made the serpent of brass and he set it for a sign and whenever a serpent would bite a man, he gazed at the serpent of brass and he lived.

10And the children of Israel picked up and they camped in Aboth. 11And they picked up from Aboth and camped at Ayna d'Ebraye “Spring of the Hebrews” in the wilderness that is next to Moab from the East, from the dawning of the sun. 12And from there they picked up and camped in the valley of Zarad. 13And from there they moved and camped at the crossing of Arnon in the wilderness that goes out from the border of the Amorites because the Arnon is Moab's border, between the Moabites and the Amorites.

14Because of this, it is said in the book of the Wars of LORD JEHOVAH, “The Flame In the Whirlwind and In the River of Arnon.

15And he has made ready the valleys that were inclining to the Habitat of Ad and were lying on the border of Moabites.”

16And there is Bera, the well where LORD JEHOVAH said to Moshe: “Gather the people to me and I shall give water to them.”

17Then Israel sang this song: ’Spring up, oh well; answer it.’

18The well that the Princes dug and the Rulers of the people dug up and they searched it with their scepters, and from the wilderness she inhabited Matne.

19And from Matne to Nakhlayel and from Nakhlayel to Bemuth. 20And from Bemuth of the valley that is in the country of Moab to the top of Ramtha that is seen against Ashimon.”

21And Israel sent Messengers to Sihon the King of the Amorites and said to him: 22“I will pass through your land and we will not turn aside in a field or in a vineyard and we will not drink from the water of your wells but we will go in the road of the King until we pass through your border.” 23And Sihon did not allow Israel to pass over into his border and Sihon gathered all his army and went out to a meeting of Israel to the wilderness and he came to Yahaz and fought with Israel. 24And Israel struck him with the mouth of the sword and they possessed his land from Arnon and unto Yabaq and unto to the children of Amon, because the border of the children of Amon was strong. 25And Israel took all these towns and Israel settled in all the towns of the Amorites, in Kheshbon and in all its villages. 26Because Kheshbon was the city of Sihon the King of the Amorites, and he fought with the King of Moab first and he took all his land from his border and unto Arnon.

27Because of this, they were saying in a parable: “Enter Kheshbon, built and established the city of Sihon.

28Because fire has proceeded from Kheshbon and a flame from the fortress city of Sihon and consumed Ad of Moab and the Servants of the high place of Arnon.

29Woe to you Arnon! Woe to you Moab! You are destroyed, people of Khemosh! He gave his sons for hostages and his daughters into captivity to Sihon the King of the Amorites.

30And the fields of Kheshbon are destroyed unto Ribon and they are laid waste unto Lankakh that is in the wilderness.”

31And Israel settled in the land of the Amorites. 32And Moshe sent to spy Yazar and conquered its villages and destroyed the Amorites there.

33And they turned, they came up to the land of Mathnin and Og, the King of Mathnin, went out to meet them, he and all his people for battle in Arday. 34And LORD JEHOVAH said to Moshe: “Do not be afraid of him, because I am delivering him into your hands, and all his people, and all his land, and do to him as you have done to Sihon the King of the Amorites, who was dwelling in Kheshbon.” 35And they put him to the sword, and his sons and all his people, and they did not leave a survivor and they inherited his land.
