ContextThe Journey to Moab
10And the children of Israel set forward, and pitched in Oboth. 11And they journeyed from Oboth, and pitched at Ijeabarim, in the wilderness which is before Moab, toward the sun rise. 12From there they removed, and pitched in the valley of Zared. 13From there they removed, and pitched on the other side of Arnon, which is in the wilderness that comes out of the coasts of the Amorites: for Arnon is the border of Moab, between Moab and the Amorites. 14Why it is said in the book of the wars of the LORD, What he did in the Red sea, and in the brooks of Arnon, 15And at the stream of the brooks that goes down to the dwelling of Ar, and lies on the border of Moab. 16And from there they went to Beer: that is the well whereof the LORD spoke to Moses, Gather the people together, and I will give them water. 17Then Israel sang this song, Spring up, O well; sing you to it: 18The princes dig the well, the nobles of the people dig it, by the direction of the lawgiver, with their staves. And from the wilderness they went to Mattanah: 19And from Mattanah to Nahaliel: and from Nahaliel to Bamoth: 20And from Bamoth in the valley, that is in the country of Moab, to the top of Pisgah, which looks toward Jeshimon.
