1 These are the journeys of the children of Israel, when they went
forth out of the land of Egypt by their hosts under the hand of Moses and
Aaron. 2 Moses wrote their goings out according to their journeys by the
commandment of Yahweh: and these are their journeys according to their goings
out. 3 They traveled from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth
day of the first month; on the next day after the Passover the children of
Israel went out with a high hand in the sight of all the Egyptians,
4 while the Egyptians were burying all their firstborn, whom Yahweh had
struck among them: on their gods also Yahweh executed judgments. 5 The
children of Israel traveled from Rameses, and encamped in Succoth. 6 They
traveled from Succoth, and encamped in Etham, which is in the edge of the
wilderness. 7 They traveled from Etham, and turned back to Pihahiroth,
which is before Baal Zephon: and they encamped before Migdol. 8 They
traveled from before Hahiroth, and passed through the midst of the sea into
the wilderness: and they went three daysí journey in the wilderness of Etham,
and encamped in Marah. 9 They traveled from Marah, and came to Elim: and
in Elim were twelve springs of water, and seventy palm trees; and they
encamped there. 10 They traveled from Elim, and encamped by the Red Sea.
11 They traveled from the Red Sea, and encamped in the wilderness of Sin.
12 They traveled from the wilderness of Sin, and encamped in Dophkah.
13 They traveled from Dophkah, and encamped in Alush. 14 They
traveled from Alush, and encamped in Rephidim, where was no water for the
people to drink. 15 They traveled from Rephidim, and encamped in the
wilderness of Sinai. 16 They traveled from the wilderness of Sinai, and
encamped in Kibroth-hattaavah. 17 They traveled from Kibroth-hattaavah,
and encamped in Hazeroth. 18 They traveled from Hazeroth, and encamped in
Rithmah. 19 They traveled from Rithmah, and encamped in Rimmon Perez.
20 They traveled from Rimmon Perez, and encamped in Libnah. 21 They
traveled from Libnah, and encamped in Rissah. 22 They traveled from
Rissah, and encamped in Kehelathah. 23 They traveled from Kehelathah, and
encamped in Mount Shepher. 24 They traveled from Mount Shepher, and
encamped in Haradah. 25 They traveled from Haradah, and encamped in
Makheloth. 26 They traveled from Makheloth, and encamped in Tahath.
27 They traveled from Tahath, and encamped in Terah. 28 They traveled
from Terah, and encamped in Mithkah. 29 They traveled from Mithkah, and
encamped in Hashmonah. 30 They traveled from Hashmonah, and encamped in
Moseroth. 31 They traveled from Moseroth, and encamped in Bene Jaakan.
32 They traveled from Bene Jaakan, and encamped in Hor Haggidgad.
33 They traveled from Hor Haggidgad, and encamped in Jotbathah.
34 They traveled from Jotbathah, and encamped in Abronah. 35 They
traveled from Abronah, and encamped in Ezion Geber. 36 They traveled
from Ezion Geber, and encamped in the wilderness of Zin (the same is Kadesh).
37 They traveled from Kadesh, and encamped in Mount Hor, in the edge of
the land of Edom. 38 Aaron the priest went up into Mount Hor at the
commandment of Yahweh, and died there, in the fortieth year after the
children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fifth month, on
the first day of the month. 39 Aaron was one hundred twenty-three years
old when he died in Mount Hor. 40 The Canaanite, the king of Arad, who
lived in the South in the land of Canaan, heard of the coming of the children
of Israel. 41 They traveled from Mount Hor, and encamped in Zalmonah.
42 They traveled from Zalmonah, and encamped in Punon. 43 They
traveled from Punon, and encamped in Oboth. 44 They traveled from Oboth,
and encamped in Iye-abarim, in the border of Moab. 45 They traveled from
Iyim, and encamped in Dibon-gad. 46 They traveled from Dibon-gad, and
encamped in Almon Diblathaim. 47 They traveled from Almon Diblathaim, and
encamped in the mountains of Abarim, before Nebo. 48 They traveled from
the mountains of Abarim, and encamped in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at
Jericho. 49 They encamped by the Jordan, from Beth-jeshimoth even to Abel
Shittim in the plains of Moab. 50 Yahweh spoke to Moses in the plains of
Moab by the Jordan at Jericho, saying, 51 Speak to the children of Israel,
and tell them, When you pass over the Jordan into the land of Canaan,
52 then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from
before you, and destroy all their figured stones, and destroy all
their molten images, and demolish all their high places: 53 and you
shall take possession of the land, and dwell therein; for to you have I given
the land to possess it. 54 You shall inherit the land by lot
according to your families; to the more you shall give the more
inheritance, and to the fewer you shall give the less inheritance: wherever
the lot falls to any man, that shall be his; according to the tribes of your
fathers shall you inherit. 55 But if you will not drive out the
inhabitants of the land from before you, then shall those who you let
remain of them be as pricks in your eyes, and as thorns in your sides, and
they shall vex you in the land in which you dwell. 56 It shall happen
that as I thought to do to them, so will I do to you.
