THE WHOLE congregation of
the children of Israel came into
the desert of Zin and lived in Ka
desh, and there Miriam, Moses'
and Aaron's sister, died and was
The wilderness of Zin is thought
to be located north of the Red
sea, Immediately below the Dead
sea, on the western end of the
Peninsula of Sinai.
There was no water for the
Israelites at this place, and of
course they complained bitterly to
Moses and Aaron, saying, "Would
that we had died when our breth
ren died before Jehovah. Why have
ye brought up the congregation of
the Lord into this wilderness, that
we and our cattle should die
there? And wherefore have ye
made us to come up out of Egypt,
to bring us unto this evil place?
It Is no place of seed, or of
figs, or of vines, or of pomegran
ates: neither Is there any water to
What a people! Instead of an
swering them Moses and Aaron
went to the Lord and told Him the
people's latest grievance. The
Lord told Moses to take his rod
to a certain rock, but not to strike
the rock as he did before, but to
speak to the rock and it would
give forth water.
Disobclience to God
Moses and Aaron must have
been very angry at the unreason
able people, for they did as the
Lord said by taking the people to
the rock, but instead of speaking
to the rock, Moses said, "Hear
now, ye rebels; must we fetch you
water out of this rock?" And he
struck the rock twice. Water
gushed forth and the congregation
and beasts drank.
The Lord spoke to Moses and
Aaron and told them that because
they believed Him not, to sancti
fy Him In the eyes of the chil
dren of Israel, Aaron should
"not bring this congregation Into
the land which I have given
them." It seemed an extreme pun
ishment, but they had shown an
ger and had not done as they were
told. Aaron was an old man whose
work was done and Moses was
needed to lead the people on to
ward the land that was promised
them Moses saw the land, you
remember, but even he was not
permitted to enter it.
Now the children of Israel were
near the border of the land of
Edom, and the shortest way to
where they wanted to go was
through that land. Moses sent a
messenger to ask the king of
Edom if they might go through if
they took nothing from the land,
not even water, but Just walked
through on the king s highway.
The Edomites were descendants
of Esau, so were also descended
from Abraham; but the king re
fused to give them permission, al
though he knew how they had suf
fered from the Egyptians and why
they were passing that way.
Twice he refused, and so they had
to go the long way around and
they came to Mount Hor. It is not
definitely known where Mount
Death of Aaron
There the Lord spoke to Moses
and Aaron in the mount, saying,
"Aaron shall be gathered unto his
people: for he shall not enter into
the land which I have given unto
the children of Israel, because ye
rebelled against My word at the
water of Merlbah.
"Take Aaron and Eleazar, his
son. and bring them up unto
mount Hor: And strip Aaron of
his garments and put them upon
Eleazar his son: and Aaron shall
be gathered unto his people, and
shall die there." ',
Moses-did as the Lord told him,
and the three went up into the
mount in the sight of all the peo
ple, who probably knew that they
never would see Aaron alive
Moses stripped the priestly
robes from Aaron and put them
on the younger man, his son, and
Aaron died there on the top of the
mount. Moses and Eleazar went
down from the mount, grieving,
no doubt, but realizing that the
Lord did all for the best.
"And when all the congregation
saw that Aaron was dead, they
mourned for Aaron 30 days, even
all the house of Israel."
