kjv@Numbers:20:14@ And Moses sent messengers from Kadesh unto the king of Edom, Thus saith thy brother Israel, Thou knowest all the travail that hath befallen us:
kjv@Numbers:20:15@ How our fathers went down into Egypt, and we have dwelt in Egypt a long time; and the Egyptians vexed us, and our fathers:
kjv@Numbers:20:16@ And when we cried unto the LORD, he heard our voice, and sent an angel, and hath brought us forth out of Egypt: and, behold, we are in Kadesh, a city in the uttermost of thy border:
kjv@Numbers:20:17@ Let us pass, I pray thee, through thy country: we will not pass through the fields, or through the vineyards, neither will we drink of the water of the wells: we will go by the king's high way, we will not turn to the right hand nor to the left, until we have passed thy borders.
kjv@Numbers:20:18@ And Edom said unto him, Thou shalt not pass by me, lest I come out against thee with the sword.
kjv@Numbers:20:19@ And the children of Israel said unto him, We will go by the high way: and if I and my cattle drink of thy water, then I will pay for it: I will only, without doing any thing else, go through on my feet.
kjv@Numbers:20:20@ And he said, Thou shalt not go through. And Edom came out against him with much people, and with a strong hand.
kjv@Numbers:20:21@ Thus Edom refused to give Israel passage through his border: wherefore Israel turned away from him.
