Numbers

Hormah: victory over Arad.  Nu.21.1-3

1When the Canaanite, the king of Arad, who dwelt in the Negeb, heard that Israel was coming by the way of Atharim, he fought against Israel, and took some of them captive. 2And Israel vowed a vow to Yahweh, and said, "If you will indeed give this people into my hand, then I will utterly destroy their cities." 3And Yahweh hearkened to the voice of Israel, and gave over the Canaanites; and they utterly destroyed them and their cities; so the name of the place was called Hormah.

The brazen serpent.  Nu.21.4-9

4From Mount Hor they set out by the way to the Red Sea, to go around the land of Edom; and the people became impatient on the way. 5And the people spoke against God and against Moses, "Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and we loathe this worthless food." 6Then Yahweh sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people, so that many people of Israel died. 7And the people came to Moses, and said, "We have sinned, for we have spoken against Yahweh and against you; pray to Yahweh, that he take away the serpents from us." So Moses prayed for the people. 8And Yahweh said to Moses, "Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and every one who is bitten, when he sees it, shall live." 9So Moses made a bronze serpent, and set it on a pole; and if a serpent bit any man, he would look at the bronze serpent and live.

On the march.  Nu.21.10-20

10And the people of Israel set out, and encamped in Oboth. 11And they set out from Oboth, and encamped at Iye-abarim, in the wilderness which is opposite Moab, toward the sunrise. 12From there they set out, and encamped in the Valley of Zered. 13From there they set out, and encamped on the other side of the Arnon, which is in the wilderness, that extends from the boundary of the Amorites; for the Arnon is the boundary of Moab, between Moab and the Amorites. 14Wherefore it is said in the Book of the Wars of Yahweh,

"Waheb in Suphah,
and the valleys of the Arnon,
15and the slope of the valleys that extends to the seat of Ar,
and leans to the border of Moab."
16And from there they continued to Beer; that is the well of which Yahweh said to Moses, "Gather the people together, and I will give them water."

17Then Israel sang this song:

"Spring up, O well! -Sing to it! -
18the well which the princes dug,
which the nobles of the people delved with the scepter and with their staves."
And from the wilderness they went on to Mattanah, 19and from Mattanah to Nahaliel, and from Nahaliel to Bamoth, 20and from Bamoth to the valley lying in the region of Moab by the top of Pisgah which looks down upon the desert.

Defeat of Sihon and Og.  Nu.21.21-35 - Dt.2.26-3.11

21Then Israel sent messengers to Sihon king of the Amorites, saying, 22"Let me pass through your land; we will not turn aside into field or vineyard; we will not drink the water of a well; we will go by the King's Highway, until we have passed through your territory." 23But Sihon would not allow Israel to pass through his territory. He gathered all his men together, and went out against Israel to the wilderness, and came to Jahaz, and fought against Israel. 24And Israel slew him with the edge of the sword, and took possession of his land from the Arnon to the Jabbok, as far as to the Ammonites; for Jazer was the boundary of the Ammonites. 25And Israel took all these cities, and Israel settled in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all its villages. 26For Heshbon was the city of Sihon the king of the Amorites, who had fought against the former king of Moab and taken all his land out of his hand, as far as the Arnon. 27Therefore the ballad singers say,

"Come to Heshbon, let it be built,
let the city of Sihon be established.
28For fire went forth from Heshbon,
flame from the city of Sihon.
It devoured Ar of Moab,
the lords of the heights of the Arnon.
29Woe to you, O Moab!
You are undone, O people of Chemosh!
He has made his sons fugitives,
and his daughters captives,
to an Amorite king, Sihon.
30So their posterity perished from Heshbon, as far as Dibon,
and we laid waste until fire spread to Medeba."

31Thus Israel dwelt in the land of the Amorites. 32And Moses sent to spy out Jazer; and they took its villages, and dispossessed the Amorites that were there. 33Then they turned and went up by the way to Bashan; and Og the king of Bashan came out against them, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei. 34But Yahweh said to Moses, "Do not fear him; for I have given him into your hand, and all his people, and his land; and you shall do to him as you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt at Heshbon." 35So they slew him, and his sons, and all his people, until there was not one survivor left to him; and they possessed his land.

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
This page displays the katapi New Standard Bible as flowing text.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have used the name 'Yahweh'.
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.
