Today's Passage: Numbers 20:14-21
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Invite God to join you in your reading. Ask Him for wisdom.
If there is anything in your spirit hindering you, confess it now.
He knows it. You are forgiven.
Ask Him to help you embrace that truth to live it out.
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you, Omnipotent God for insight.

14. While Moses was at Kadesh, he sent ambassadors to the king of Edom with this message:
"This is what your relatives, the
people of Israel, say: You know all
the hardships we have been through.
15. Our ancestors went down to Egypt, and we lived there a long time, and we and our ancestors were brutally mistreated by the Egyptians.
16. But when we cried out to the LORD, he heard us and sent an angel who brought us out of Egypt. Now we are camped t Kadesh, a town on the border of your land.
17. Please let us travel through your land. We will be careful not to go through your fields and vineyards. We won't even drink water from your wells. We will stay on the king's road and never leave it until we have passed through your territory."
18. But the king of Edom said, "Stay out of my land, or I will meet you with an army!"
19. The Israelites answered, "We will stay on the main road. If our livestock drink your water, we will pay for it. Just let us pass through your country. That's all we ask."
20. But the king of Edom replied, "Stay out! You may not pass through our land." With that he mobilized his army and marched out against them with an imposing force.
21, Because Edom refused to allow Israel to pass through their country, Israel was forced to turn around.
