12  And YHWH said unto Moses and Aaron: 'Because ye believed not in Me, to sanctify Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.'

12  And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, Because ye have not believed me to sanctify me before the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.

13  These are the waters of Meribah, where the children of Israel strove with YHWH, and He was sanctified in them.

13  This is the water of Strife, because the children of Israel spoke insolently before the Lord, and he was sanctified in them.

13  This is the water of Meribah, because the children of Israel strove with the LORD, and he was sanctified in them. And Moses said: LORD, you began to show servant of you greatness and the strong hand. Who will do in heavens and in the earth that which you would do as deeds of you and as forces of you. Let me cross over, please, and I shall see the earth good which is across the Jordan, this good mountain and Lebanon. And the LORD said to Moses: enough of you to talk to me about this. Rise to the top of the Pisgah, and lift your eyes toward the west, and the north and the south and the east, and see you with your eyes, as not you are going to cross this Jordan. And command with Joshua son of Nun, and strengthen him and encourage him: for he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which thou shalt see. And the LORD said to Moses to say: multitudes of you should turn around this mountain and face the north. And as it was commanded, say to the ones crossing over in the boundary brothers of you, sons of Esau, the ones dwelling in Seir. And they will fear you and you will be very careful as not to anger them, as I will not give you the land which he occupies, not even as much as of a foot. As to Esau I gave the mountain Seir. Purchase from them food that you need to eat, and for the water to drink you shall pay with silver.
