Numbers 21
NMV
21
1And [when] king ‘Arad [A Wild Ass] the Kena’ani [Merchants], which dwelt in the south, heard tell that Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] came by the way of the spies; then he fought against Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], and took [some] of them prisoners.
2And Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] vowed a vow unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), and said, If youi will indeed deliver this people into my hand, then I will utterly destroy their cities.
3And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) listened to the voice of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], and delivered up the Kena’ani [Merchant]; and they utterly destroyed them and their cities: and he called the name of the place Hormah [Asylum].
4And they journeyed from mount Hor [Mountain Peak] by the way of the Red sea, to compass (go around, encircle; encompass) the land of Edom [Red]: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way.
5And the people spoke against God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], and against Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters], For what reason have you2f brought us up out of Mitzrayim [Egypt - The Narrow Place] to die in the wilderness? for [there is] no bread, neither [is there any] water; and our soul loathes this light bread.
6And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] died.
7Therefore the people came to Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters], and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), and against youi; pray unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), that he take away the serpents from us. And Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] prayed for the people.
8And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) said unto Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters], Make youi a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looks upon it, shall live.
9And Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.
10And the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] set forward, and pitched in Ovot [Waterskins].
11And they journeyed from Ovot [Waterskins], and pitched at ‘Iyei-Ha’avarim [Ruins of Regions Beyond], in the wilderness which [is] before Mo’av [Seed of my Father], toward the sunrising.
12From there they removed, and pitched in the Vadi Zared [“Flexible Twig of a Willow Tree” Brook].
13From there they removed, and pitched on the other side of ‘Arnon [Rushing Stream], which [is] in the wilderness that comes out of the coasts of the Emori [Highlanders]: for ‘Arnon [Rushing Stream] [is] the border of Mo’av [Seed of my Father], between Mo’av [Seed of my Father] and the Emori [Highlanders].
14For what reason it is said in the book of the wars of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), What he did in the Red sea, and in the brooks of ‘Arnon [Rushing Stream],
15And at the stream of the brooks that goes down to the dwelling of ‘Ar [A City], and lies upon the border of Mo’av [Seed of my Father].
16And from there [they went] to Be’er [Well]: that [is] the well whereof the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) spoke unto Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters], Gather the people together, and I will give them water.
17Then Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] sang this song, Spring up, O well; sing you2f unto it:
18The princes excavated the well, the nobles of the people excavated it, by [the direction of] the lawgiver, with their rods (clubs). And from the wilderness [they went] to Mattanah [Gift of Jehovah]:
19And from Mattanah [Gift of Jehovah] to Nachali’el [Torrents of God]: and from Nachali’el [Torrents of God] to Bamot [Great High Place]:
20And from Bamot [Great High Place] [in] the valley, that [is] in the country of Mo’av [Seed of my Father], to the top of Pisgah [Cleft (split hoof; an opening, break or split) Mountain Range], which looks toward Y’shim’on [Wasteland].
21And Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] sent messengers unto Sichon [Warrior] king of the Emori [Highlanders], saying,
22Let me pass through youi land: we will not turn into the fields, or into the vineyards; we will not drink [of] the waters of the well: [but] we will go along by the king’s [high] way, until we be past youi borders.
23And Sichon [Warrior] would not suffer Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] to pass through his border: but Sichon [Warrior] gathered all his people together, and went out against Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] into the wilderness: and he came to Yachatz [Trampled Down], and fought against Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
24And Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] struck him with the edge of the sword, and possessed his land from ‘Arnon [Rushing Stream] unto Yabok [luxuriant emptying river], even unto the children of ‘Amon [Inbred]: for the border of the children of ‘Amon [Inbred] [was] strong.
25And Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] took all these cities: and Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] dwelt in all the cities of the Emori [Highlanders], in Heshbon [Stronghold], and in all the villages thereof.
26For Heshbon [Stronghold] [was] the city of Sichon [Warrior] the king of the Emori [Highlanders], who had fought against the former king of Mo’av [Seed of my Father], and taken all his land out of his hand, even unto ‘Arnon [Rushing Stream].
27For what reason they that speak in proverbs say, Come into Heshbon [Stronghold], let the city of Sichon [Warrior] be built and prepared:
28For there is a fire gone out of Heshbon [Stronghold], a flame from the city of Sichon [Warrior]: it has consumed ‘Ar [A City] of Mo’av [Seed of my Father], [and] the lords of the high places of ‘Arnon [Rushing Stream].
29Woe to youi, Mo’av [Seed of my Father]! youi are undone, O people of K’mosh [Subduer]: he has given his sons that escaped, and his daughters, into captivity unto Sichon [Warrior] king of the Emori [Highlanders].
30We have shot at them; Heshbon [Stronghold] is perished even unto Divon [Wasting], and we have laid them waste even unto Nofach [Blast], which [reaches] unto Meidva [Water of Rest].
31Thus Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] dwelt in the land of the Emori [Highlanders].
32And Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] sent to spy out Ya’zer [Helped], and they took the villages thereof, and drove out the Emori [Highlanders] that [were] there.
33And they turned and went up by the way of Bashan [Fruitful]: and ‘Og [Long-necked] the king of Bashan [Fruitful] went out against them, he, and all his people, to the battle at Edre’i [Good Pasture].
34And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) said unto Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters], Fear him not: for I have delivered him into youi hand, and all his people, and his land; and youi shall do to him as youi did unto Sichon [Warrior] king of the Emori [Highlanders], which dwelt at Heshbon [Stronghold].
35So they struck him, and his sons, and all his people, until there was none left him alive: and they possessed his land.
