Chapter 33 #33:0 This chapter mentions 40 places where the Israelites camped on their journey from Egypt to Moab. It does not include all the places that the Book of Exodus describes.
1This is the journey of the Israelites. Moses and Aaron led them out of Egypt. They travelled in their tribes. 2The LORD told Moses that he should write about the journey. This is the journey:
3They left Rameses in the first month. They started to travel from Rameses on the 15th day of the first month. That was the day after the Passover. The Israelites marched out bravely. And all Egypt's people watched them as they went. 4As they left, Egypt's people were burying all their oldest sons. The LORD had killed their oldest sons. The LORD had also shown that he is more powerful than their gods.

50Then the LORD spoke to Moses on the flat ground in Moab by the River Jordan. The place was near Jericho but it was on the other side of the River Jordan. He said, 51‘Say to the Israelites, “You will cross over the River Jordan to Canaan. 52Then you must send out all the people who live in that country in front of you. You must not let any of those people stay in the country. And you must destroy all their stones in the shape of people. And you must destroy all the idols that they have made from metal. And you must destroy all their high places for worship. 53And you must get power over the country and you must live in it. Do that because I have given the country to you. I have given it to you so that you can live it. 54And you must use lots to give the land to your clans. You must give more land to the larger clans and you must give less land to the smaller clans. Whatever land somebody gets as a result of the lots, that will be his land. Each of your ancestors' tribes will get its own land.
55If any Canaanites remain in the country, they will be a problem to the Israelites. 56And I will do to you what I wanted to do to them.” ’
