Numbers 21


1  And when king4428 Arad6166 the Canaanite,3669 which dwelt3427 in the south,5045 heard tell8085 that3588 Israel3478 came935 by the way1870 of the spies;871 then he fought3898 against Israel,3478 and took7617 some of4480 them prisoners.7628

2  And Israel3478 vowed5087 a vow5088 unto the LORD,3068 and said,559 If518 thou wilt indeed deliver5414 5414 853 this2088 people5971 into my hand,3027 then I will utterly destroy2763 853 their cities.5892

3  And the LORD3068 hearkened8085 to the voice6963 of Israel,3478 and delivered up5414 853 the Canaanites;3669 and they utterly destroyed2763 them and their cities:5892 and he called7121 the name8034 of the place4725 Hormah.2767

4  And they journeyed5265 from mount2022 Hor4480 2023 by the way1870 of the Red5488 sea,3220 to compass5437 853 the land776 of Edom:123 and the soul5315 of the people5971 was much discouraged7114 because of the way.1870

5  And the people5971 spoke1696 against God,430 and against Moses,4872 Wherefore4100 have ye brought us up5927 out of Egypt4480 4714 to die4191 in the wilderness?4057 for3588 there is no369 bread,3899 neither369 is there any water;4325 and our soul5315 loatheth6973 this light7052 bread.3899

6  And the LORD3068 sent7971 853 fiery8314 serpents5175 among the people,5971 and they bit5391 853 the people;5971 and much7227 people5971 of Israel4480 3478 died.4191

7  Therefore the people5971 came935 to413 Moses,4872 and said,559 We have sinned,2398 for3588 we have spoken1696 against the LORD,3068 and against thee; pray6419 unto413 the LORD,3068 that he take away5493 853 the serpents5175 from4480 5921 us. And Moses4872 prayed6419 for1157 the people.5971

8  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 Make6213 thee a fiery serpent,8314 and set7760 it upon5921 a pole:5251 and it shall come to pass,1961 that every one3605 that is bitten,5391 when he looketh upon7200 it, shall live.2425

9  And Moses4872 made6213 a serpent5175 of brass,5178 and put7760 it upon5921 a pole,5251 and it came to pass,1961 that if518 a serpent5175 had bitten5391 853 any man,376 when he beheld5027 413 the serpent5175 of brass,5178 he lived.2425

10  And the children1121 of Israel3478 set forward,5265 and pitched2583 in Oboth.88

11  And they journeyed5265 from Oboth,4480 88 and pitched2583 at Ije-abarim,5863 in the wilderness4057 which834 is before5921 6440 Moab,4124 toward the sunrising.4480 4217 8121

12  From thence4480 8033 they removed,5265 and pitched2583 in the valley5158 of Zared.2218

13  From thence4480 8033 they removed,5265 and pitched2583 on the other side4480 5676 of Arnon,769 which834 is in the wilderness4057 that cometh out3318 of the coasts4480 1366 of the Amorites:567 for3588 Arnon769 is the border1366 of Moab,4124 between996 Moab4124 and the Amorites.567

14  Wherefore5921 3651 it is said559 in the book5612 of the wars4421 of the LORD,3068 853 What he did2052 in the Red sea,5492 and in the brooks5158 of Arnon,769

15  And at the stream793 of the brooks5158 that834 goeth down5186 to the dwelling7675 of Ar,6144 and lieth8172 upon the border1366 of Moab.4124

16  And from thence4480 8033 they went to Beer:876 that1931 is the well875 whereof834 the LORD3068 spoke559 unto Moses,4872 Gather the people together,622 853 5971 and I will give5414 them water.4325

17  Then227 Israel3478 sang7891 853 this2063 song,7892 Spring up,5927 O well;875 sing6030 ye unto it:

18  The princes8269 digged2658 the well,875 the nobles5081 of the people5971 digged3738 it, by the direction of the lawgiver,2710 with their staves.4938 And from the wilderness4480 4057 they went to Mattanah:4980

19  And from Mattanah4480 4980 to Nahaliel:5160 and from Nahaliel4480 5160 to Bamoth:1120

20  And from Bamoth4480 1120 in the valley,1516 that834 is in the country7704 of Moab,4124 to the top7218 of Pisgah,6449 which looketh8259 toward5921 6440 Jeshimon.3452

21  And Israel3478 sent7971 messengers4397 unto413 Sihon5511 king4428 of the Amorites,567 saying,559

22  Let me pass5674 through thy land:776 we will not3808 turn5186 into the fields,7704 or into the vineyards;3754 we will not3808 drink8354 of the waters4325 of the well:875 but we will go along1980 by the king's4428 high way,1870 until5704 834 we be past5674 thy borders.1366

23  And Sihon5511 would not3808 suffer5414 853 Israel3478 to pass5674 through his border:1366 but Sihon5511 gathered all his people together,622 853 3605 5971 and went out3318 against7125 Israel3478 into the wilderness:4057 and he came935 to Jahaz,3096 and fought3898 against Israel.3478

24  And Israel3478 smote5221 him with the edge6310 of the sword,2719 and possessed3423 853 his land776 from Arnon4480 769 unto5704 Jabbok,2999 even unto5704 the children1121 of Ammon:5983 for3588 the border1366 of the children1121 of Ammon5983 was strong.5794

25  And Israel3478 took3947 853 all3605 these428 cities:5892 and Israel3478 dwelt3427 in all3605 the cities5892 of the Amorites,567 in Heshbon,2809 and in all3605 the villages1323 thereof.

26  For3588 Heshbon2809 was the city5892 of Sihon5511 the king4428 of the Amorites,567 who1931 had fought3898 against the former7223 king4428 of Moab,4124 and taken3947 853 all3605 his land776 out of his hand,4480 3027 even unto5704 Arnon.769

27  Wherefore5921 3651 they that speak in proverbs4911 say,559 Come935 into Heshbon,2809 let the city5892 of Sihon5511 be built1129 and prepared:3559

28  For3588 there is a fire784 gone out3318 of Heshbon,4480 2809 a flame3852 from the city4480 7151 of Sihon:5511 it hath consumed398 Ar6144 of Moab,4124 and the lords1167 of the high places1116 of Arnon.769

29  Woe188 to thee, Moab!4124 thou art undone,6 O people5971 of Chemosh:3645 he hath given5414 his sons1121 that escaped,6412 and his daughters,1323 into captivity7628 unto Sihon5511 king4428 of the Amorites.567

30  We have shot3384 at them; Heshbon2809 is perished6 even unto5704 Dibon,1769 and we have laid them waste8074 even unto5704 Nophah,5302 which834 reacheth unto5704 Medeba.4311

31  Thus Israel3478 dwelt3427 in the land776 of the Amorites.567

32  And Moses4872 sent7971 to spy out7270 853 Jaazer,3270 and they took3920 the villages1323 thereof, and drove out3423 853 the Amorites567 that834 were there.8033

33  And they turned6437 and went up5927 by the way1870 of Bashan:1316 and Og5747 the king4428 of Bashan1316 went out3318 against7125 them, he,1931 and all3605 his people,5971 to the battle4421 at Edrei.154

34  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 Fear3372 him not:408 for3588 I have delivered5414 him into thy hand,3027 and all3605 his people,5971 and his land;776 and thou shalt do6213 to him as834 thou didst6213 unto Sihon5511 king4428 of the Amorites,567 which834 dwelt3427 at Heshbon.2809

35  So they smote5221 him, and his sons,1121 and all3605 his people,5971 until5704 there was none1115 left7604 him alive:8300 and they possessed3423 853 his land.776


1 καὶ ἤκουσεν ὁ Χανανις βασιλεὺς Αραδ ὁ κατοικῶν κατὰ τὴν ἔρημον ἦλθεν γὰρ Ισραηλ ὁδὸν Αθαριν καὶ ἐπολέμησεν πρὸς Ισραηλ καὶ κατεπρονόμευσαν ἐξ αὐτῶν αἰχμαλωσίαν

2 καὶ ηὔξατο Ισραηλ εὐχὴν κυρίῳ καὶ εἶπεν ἐάν μοι παραδῷς τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον ὑποχείριον ἀναθεματιῶ αὐτὸν καὶ τὰς πόλεις αὐτοῦ

3 καὶ εἰσήκουσεν κύριος τῆς φωνῆς Ισραηλ καὶ παρέδωκεν τὸν Χανανιν ὑποχείριον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀνεθεμάτισεν αὐτὸν καὶ τὰς πόλεις αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπεκάλεσαν τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου ἀνάθεμα

4 καὶ ἀπάραντες ἐξ Ωρ τοῦ ὄρους ὁδὸν ἐπὶ θάλασσαν ἐρυθρὰν περιεκύκλωσαν γῆν Εδωμ καὶ ὠλιγοψύχησεν ὁ λαὸς ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ

5 καὶ κατελάλει ὁ λαὸς πρὸς τὸν θεὸν καὶ κατὰ Μωυσῆ λέγοντες ἵνα τί ἐξήγαγες ἡμᾶς ἐξ Αἰγύπτου ἀποκτεῖναι ἡμᾶς ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν ἄρτος οὐδὲ ὕδωρ ἡ δὲ ψυχὴ ἡμῶν προσώχθισεν ἐν τῷ ἄρτῳ τῷ διακένῳ

6 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν κύριος εἰς τὸν λαὸν τοὺς ὄφεις τοὺς θανατοῦντας καὶ ἔδακνον τὸν λαόν καὶ ἀπέθανεν λαὸς πολὺς τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ

7 καὶ παραγενόμενος ὁ λαὸς πρὸς Μωυσῆν ἔλεγον ὅτι ἡμάρτομεν ὅτι κατελαλήσαμεν κατὰ τοῦ κυρίου καὶ κατὰ σοῦ εὖξαι οὖν πρὸς κύριον καὶ ἀφελέτω ἀφ᾽ ἡμῶν τὸν ὄφιν καὶ ηὔξατο Μωυσῆς πρὸς κύριον περὶ τοῦ λαοῦ

8 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν ποίησον σεαυτῷ ὄφιν καὶ θὲς αὐτὸν ἐπὶ σημείου καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν δάκῃ ὄφις ἄνθρωπον πᾶς ὁ δεδηγμένος ἰδὼν αὐτὸν ζήσεται

9 καὶ ἐποίησεν Μωυσῆς ὄφιν χαλκοῦν καὶ ἔστησεν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ σημείου καὶ ἐγένετο ὅταν ἔδακνεν ὄφις ἄνθρωπον καὶ ἐπέβλεψεν ἐπὶ τὸν ὄφιν τὸν χαλκοῦν καὶ ἔζη

10 καὶ ἀπῆραν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ καὶ παρενέβαλον ἐν Ωβωθ

11 καὶ ἐξάραντες ἐξ Ωβωθ παρενέβαλον ἐν Αχελγαι ἐκ τοῦ πέραν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ἥ ἐστιν κατὰ πρόσωπον Μωαβ κατὰ ἀνατολὰς ἡλίου

12 ἐκεῖθεν ἀπῆραν καὶ παρενέβαλον εἰς φάραγγα Ζαρετ

13 καὶ ἐκεῖθεν ἀπάραντες παρενέβαλον εἰς τὸ πέραν Αρνων ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ τὸ ἐξέχον ἀπὸ τῶν ὁρίων τῶν Αμορραίων ἔστιν γὰρ Αρνων ὅρια Μωαβ ἀνὰ μέσον Μωαβ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ Αμορραίου

14 διὰ τοῦτο λέγεται ἐν βιβλίῳ πόλεμος τοῦ κυρίου τὴν Ζωοβ ἐφλόγισεν καὶ τοὺς χειμάρρους Αρνων

15 καὶ τοὺς χειμάρρους κατέστησεν κατοικίσαι Ηρ καὶ πρόσκειται τοῖς ὁρίοις Μωαβ

16 καὶ ἐκεῖθεν τὸ φρέαρ τοῦτό ἐστιν τὸ φρέαρ ὃ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν συνάγαγε τὸν λαόν καὶ δώσω αὐτοῖς ὕδωρ πιεῖν

17 τότε ᾖσεν Ισραηλ τὸ ᾆσμα τοῦτο ἐπὶ τοῦ φρέατος ἐξάρχετε αὐτῷ

18 φρέαρ ὤρυξαν αὐτὸ ἄρχοντες ἐξελατόμησαν αὐτὸ βασιλεῖς ἐθνῶν ἐν τῇ βασιλείᾳ αὐτῶν ἐν τῷ κυριεῦσαι αὐτῶν καὶ ἀπὸ φρέατος εἰς Μανθαναιν

19 καὶ ἀπὸ Μανθαναιν εἰς Νααλιηλ καὶ ἀπὸ Νααλιηλ εἰς Βαμωθ

20 καὶ ἀπὸ Βαμωθ εἰς νάπην ἥ ἐστιν ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ Μωαβ ἀπὸ κορυφῆς τοῦ λελαξευμένου τὸ βλέπον κατὰ πρόσωπον τῆς ἐρήμου

21 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Μωυσῆς πρέσβεις πρὸς Σηων βασιλέα Αμορραίων λόγοις εἰρηνικοῖς λέγων

22 παρελευσόμεθα διὰ τῆς γῆς σου τῇ ὁδῷ πορευσόμεθα οὐκ ἐκκλινοῦμεν οὔτε εἰς ἀγρὸν οὔτε εἰς ἀμπελῶνα οὐ πιόμεθα ὕδωρ ἐκ φρέατός σου ὁδῷ βασιλικῇ πορευσόμεθα ἕως παρέλθωμεν τὰ ὅριά σου

23 καὶ οὐκ ἔδωκεν Σηων τῷ Ισραηλ παρελθεῖν διὰ τῶν ὁρίων αὐτοῦ καὶ συνήγαγεν Σηων πάντα τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξῆλθεν παρατάξασθαι τῷ Ισραηλ εἰς τὴν ἔρημον καὶ ἦλθεν εἰς Ιασσα καὶ παρετάξατο τῷ Ισραηλ

24 καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτὸν Ισραηλ φόνῳ μαχαίρης καὶ κατεκυρίευσαν τῆς γῆς αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ Αρνων ἕως Ιαβοκ ἕως υἱῶν Αμμαν ὅτι Ιαζηρ ὅρια υἱῶν Αμμων ἐστίν

25 καὶ ἔλαβεν Ισραηλ πάσας τὰς πόλεις ταύτας καὶ κατῴκησεν Ισραηλ ἐν πάσαις ταῖς πόλεσιν τῶν Αμορραίων ἐν Εσεβων καὶ ἐν πάσαις ταῖς συγκυρούσαις αὐτῇ

26 ἔστιν γὰρ Εσεβων πόλις Σηων τοῦ βασιλέως τῶν Αμορραίων καὶ οὗτος ἐπολέμησεν βασιλέα Μωαβ τὸ πρότερον καὶ ἔλαβον πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ Αροηρ ἕως Αρνων

27 διὰ τοῦτο ἐροῦσιν οἱ αἰνιγματισταί ἔλθετε εἰς Εσεβων ἵνα οἰκοδομηθῇ καὶ κατασκευασθῇ πόλις Σηων

28 ὅτι πῦρ ἐξῆλθεν ἐξ Εσεβων φλὸξ ἐκ πόλεως Σηων καὶ κατέφαγεν ἕως Μωαβ καὶ κατέπιεν στήλας Αρνων

29 οὐαί σοι Μωαβ ἀπώλου λαὸς Χαμως ἀπεδόθησαν οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτῶν διασῴζεσθαι καὶ αἱ θυγατέρες αὐτῶν αἰχμάλωτοι τῷ βασιλεῖ τῶν Αμορραίων Σηων

30 καὶ τὸ σπέρμα αὐτῶν ἀπολεῖται Εσεβων ἕως Δαιβων καὶ αἱ γυναῖκες ἔτι προσεξέκαυσαν πῦρ ἐπὶ Μωαβ

31 κατῴκησεν δὲ Ισραηλ ἐν πάσαις ταῖς πόλεσιν τῶν Αμορραίων

32 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Μωυσῆς κατασκέψασθαι τὴν Ιαζηρ καὶ κατελάβοντο αὐτὴν καὶ τὰς κώμας αὐτῆς καὶ ἐξέβαλον τὸν Αμορραῖον τὸν κατοικοῦντα ἐκεῖ

33 καὶ ἐπιστρέψαντες ἀνέβησαν ὁδὸν τὴν εἰς Βασαν καὶ ἐξῆλθεν Ωγ βασιλεὺς τῆς Βασαν εἰς συνάντησιν αὐτοῖς καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς αὐτοῦ εἰς πόλεμον εἰς Εδραϊν

34 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν μὴ φοβηθῇς αὐτόν ὅτι εἰς τὰς χεῖράς σου παραδέδωκα αὐτὸν καὶ πάντα τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ καὶ ποιήσεις αὐτῷ καθὼς ἐποίησας τῷ Σηων βασιλεῖ τῶν Αμορραίων ὃς κατῴκει ἐν Εσεβων

35 καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτὸν καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ ἕως τοῦ μὴ καταλιπεῖν αὐτοῦ ζωγρείαν καὶ ἐκληρονόμησαν τὴν γῆν αὐτῶν

1 Quod cum audisset Chananæus rex Arad, qui habitabat ad meridiem, venisse scilicet Israël per exploratorum viam, pugnavit contra illum, et victor existens, duxit ex eo prædam.

2 At Israël voto se Domino obligans, ait: Si tradideris populum istum in manu mea, delebo urbes ejus.

3 Exaudivitque Dominus preces Israël, et tradidit Chananæum, quem ille interfecit subversis urbibus ejus: et vocavit nomen loci illius Horma, id est, anathema.

4 Profecti sunt autem et de monte Hor, per viam quæ ducit ad mare Rubrum, ut circumirent terram Edom. Et tædere cœpit populum itineris ac laboris:

5 locutusque contra Deum et Moysen, ait: Cur eduxisti nos de Ægypto, ut moreremur in solitudine? deest panis, non sunt aquæ: anima nostra jam nauseat super cibo isto levissimo.

6 Quam ob rem misit Dominus in populum ignitos serpentes, ad quorum plagas et mortes plurimorum,

7 venerunt ad Moysen, atque dixerunt: Peccavimus, quia locuti sumus contra Dominum et te: ora ut tollat a nobis serpentes. Oravitque Moyses pro populo,

8 et locutus est Dominus ad eum: Fac serpentem æneum, et pone eum pro signo: qui percussus aspexerit eum, vivet.

9 Fecit ergo Moyses serpentem æneum, et posuit eum pro signo: quem cum percussi aspicerent, sanabantur.

10 Profectique filii Israël castrametati sunt in Oboth.

11 Unde egressi fixere tentoria in Jeabarim, in solitudine quæ respicit Moab contra orientalem plagam.

12 Et inde moventes, venerunt ad torrentem Zared.

13 Quem relinquentes castrametati sunt contra Arnon, quæ est in deserto, et prominet in finibus Amorrhæi. Siquidem Arnon terminus est Moab, dividens Moabitas et Amorrhæos.

14 Unde dicitur in libro bellorum Domini: [Sicut fecit in mari Rubro,
sic faciet in torrentibus Arnon.

15 Scopuli torrentium inclinati sunt, ut requiescerent in Ar,
et recumberent in finibus Moabitarum.]

16 Ex eo loco apparuit puteus, super quo locutus est Dominus ad Moysen: Congrega populum, et dabo ei aquam.

17 Tunc cecinit Israël carmen istud: [Ascendat puteus.] Concinebant:

18 [Puteus, quem foderunt principes
et paraverunt duces multitudinis
in datore legis, et in baculis suis.] De solitudine, Matthana.

19 De Matthana in Nahaliel: de Nahaliel in Bamoth.

20 De Bamoth, vallis est in regione Moab, in vertice Phasga, quod respicit contra desertum.

21 Misit autem Israël nuntios ad Sehon regem Amorrhæorum, dicens:

22 Obsecro ut transire mihi liceat per terram tuam: non declinabimus in agros et vineas; non bibemus aquas ex puteis: via regia gradiemur, donec transeamus terminos tuos.

23 Qui concedere noluit ut transiret Israël per fines suos: quin potius exercitu congregato, egressus est obviam in desertum, et venit in Jasa, pugnavitque contra eum.

24 A quo percussus est in ore gladii, et possessa est terra ejus ab Arnon usque Jeboc, et filios Ammon: quia forti præsidio tenebantur termini Ammonitarum.

25 Tulit ergo Israël omnes civitates ejus, et habitavit in urbibus Amorrhæi, in Hesebon scilicet, et viculis ejus.

26 Urbs Hesebon fuit Sehon regis Amorrhæi, qui pugnavit contra regem Moab: et tulit omnem terram, quæ ditionis illius fuerat usque Arnon.

27 Idcirco dicitur in proverbio: [Venite in Hesebon: ædificetur, et construatur civitas Sehon:

28 ignis egressus est de Hesebon, flamma de oppido Sehon,
et devoravit Ar Moabitarum, et habitatores excelsorum Arnon.

29 Væ tibi Moab; peristi popule Chamos.
Dedit filios ejus in fugam, et filias in captivitatem regi Amorrhæorum Sehon.

30 Jugum ipsorum disperiit ad Hesebon usque Dibon:
lassi pervenerunt in Nophe, et usque Medaba.]

31 Habitavit itaque Israël in terra Amorrhæi.

32 Misitque Moyses qui explorarent Jazer: cujus ceperunt viculos, et possederunt habitatores.

33 Verteruntque se, et ascenderunt per viam Basan, et occurrit eis Og, rex Basan, cum omni populo suo, pugnaturus in Edrai.

34 Dixitque Dominus ad Moysen: Ne timeas eum, quia in manu tua tradidi illum, et omnem populum ac terram ejus: faciesque illi sicut fecisti Sehon, regi Amorrhæorum habitatori Hesebon.

35 Percusserunt igitur et hunc cum filiis suis, universumque populum ejus usque ad internecionem, et possederunt terram illius.
