1 The king of Arad, the Canaanite living in the Negeb, learned that Israel was coming by way of Atharim. He attacked Israel and took some prisoners.
Judg 1:16 Num 33:40 Josh 12:14 Deut 2:32 Josh 7:5 Josh 11:19-20 Num 13:21-22
2 Israel then made this vow to Yahweh, 'If you deliver this people into my power, I shall curse their towns with destruction.'
Gen 28:20 Judg 11:30 1Cor 16:22 1Sam 1:11 2Sam 15:7-8 Deut 13:15 Josh 6:17
3 Yahweh heard Israel's words and delivered the Canaanites into their power, and they destroyed them in accordance with their curse. Hence the place was given the name Hormah.
Num 14:45 Deut 1:44 1Sam 30:30 Ps 10:17 Ps 91:15 Ps 102:17
4 They left Mount Hor by the road to the Sea of Suph, to skirt round Edom. On the way the people lost patience.
Exod 6:9 Judg 11:18 Num 33:41 1Thess 3:3-4 Acts 14:22 Deut 1:40 Deut 2:5-8
5 They spoke against God and against Moses, 'Why did you bring us out of Egypt to die in the desert? For there is neither food nor water here; we are sick of this meagre diet.'
Ps 78:19 Exod 14:11 Exod 15:24 Exod 16:2-3 Exod 16:7-8 Exod 16:15 Exod 16:31
6 At this, God sent fiery serpents among the people; their bite brought death to many in Israel.
1Cor 10:9 Deut 8:15 Jer 8:17 Isa 14:29 Isa 30:6 Amos 9:3-4 Gen 3:14-15
7 The people came and said to Moses, 'We have sinned by speaking against Yahweh and against you. Intercede for us with Yahweh to save us from these serpents.' Moses interceded for the people,
Acts 8:24 Exod 8:8 Num 11:2 Ps 78:34 1Kgs 13:6 Exod 8:28 1Sam 12:19-23
8 and Yahweh replied, 'Make a fiery serpent and raise it as a standard. Anyone who is bitten and looks at it will survive.'
John 3:14 Ps 106:43-45 Ps 145:8
9 Moses then made a serpent out of bronze and raised it as a standard, and anyone who was bitten by a serpent and looked at the bronze serpent survived.

10 The Israelites set out and camped at Oboth.
11 Then they left Oboth and camped at Iye-Abarim, in the desert on the eastern border of Moab.
12 They set out from there and camped in the gorge of the Zered.
13 They set out from there and camped on the other side of the Arnon. This gorge in the desert begins in the territory of the Amorites. For the Arnon is the frontier of Moab, between the Moabites and the Amorites.
Judg 11:18 Num 22:36 Deut 2:24 Isa 16:2 Jer 48:20 Num 21:14
14 That is why it says in the Book of the Wars of Yahweh: '. . .Waheb near Suphah and the gorges of the Arnon
2Sam 1:18 Josh 10:13
15 and the slope of the ravine running down to the site of Ar and over against the frontier of Moab.'
Deut 2:9 Deut 2:18 Num 21:28 Deut 2:29 Isa 15:1
16 And from there they went to Beer, that being the well in connection with which Yahweh had said to Moses, 'Call the people together and I will give them water.'
Exod 17:6 Isa 12:3 Judg 9:21 Num 20:8 Isa 41:17-18 Isa 43:20 Isa 49:10
17 Then it was that Israel sang this song: Spring up, well! Sing out for the well,
Exod 15:1-2 Isa 12:1-2 Isa 12:5 Jas 5:13 Judg 5:1 Ps 105:2 Ps 106:12
18 sunk by the princes, dug by the people's leaders with the sceptre, with their staves! -and from the desert to Mattanah,
1Tim 6:17-18 2Chr 17:7-9 Deut 5:31 Deut 33:4 Isa 33:22 Jas 4:12 John 1:17
19 and from Mattanah to Nahaliel, and from Nahaliel to Bamoth,
20 and from Bamoth to the valley that opens into the country of Moab, towards the heights of Pisgah overlooking the desert.
Num 23:28 Deut 1:5 Deut 3:27 Deut 4:49 Deut 34:1 Num 22:1 Num 23:14
21 Israel sent messengers to say to Sihon king of the Amorites,
Deut 2:26-28 Judg 11:19-21 Num 20:14-19
22 'I wish to pass through your country. We shall not stray into the fields or vineyards; we shall not drink the water from the wells; we shall keep to the king's highway until we have passed through your territory.'
23 But Sihon would not give Israel leave to pass through his country. He assembled all his people, marched into the desert to meet Israel, and reached Jahaz, where he gave battle to Israel.
Judg 11:20 Deut 29:7-8 Deut 2:30-32 Isa 15:4 Jer 48:34 Num 20:21
24 Israel defeated him by force of arms and conquered his country from the Arnon to the Jabbok, as far as the Ammonites, for Jazer marked the Ammonite frontier.
Amos 2:9 Gen 32:22 Josh 24:8 Neh 9:22 Ps 136:19 Deut 2:31-37 Deut 3:16
25 Israel took all these towns. Israel occupied all the Amorite towns, Heshbon and all its dependencies,
Amos 2:10 Deut 2:12 Ezek 16:46 Ezek 16:49 Ezek 16:53 Isa 15:4 Isa 16:8-9
26 Heshbon being the capital of Sihon king of the Amorites, who had made war on the first king of Moab and captured all his territory as far as the Arnon.
27 Hence the poets say: Come to Heshbon! Let the city of Sihon be rebuilt on firm foundations!
Hab 2:6 Isa 14:4 Num 21:14
28 For fire has burst from Heshbon, a flame from the city of Sihon, devouring Ar of Moab, engulfing the heights of the Arnon.
Num 21:15 Jer 48:45-46 Amos 1:4 Amos 1:7 Amos 1:10 Amos 1:12 Amos 1:14
29 Oh, unhappy Moab! People of Chemosh, you are lost! He has resigned his sons as fugitives, and his daughters as prisoners to Sihon king of the Amorites.
2Kgs 23:13 Jer 48:46 Judg 11:24 1Kgs 11:7 1Kgs 11:33 Jer 48:7 1Cor 8:4-5
30 Their posterity has been destroyed from Heshbon all the way to Dibon, and we have lit a fire all the way from Nophah to Medeba.
Isa 15:2 Jer 48:18 Jer 48:22 Josh 13:17 Num 32:3 Num 32:34 2Sam 11:24
31 Thus Israel occupied the Amorites' territory.
Deut 3:16-17 Josh 12:1-6 Josh 13:8-12 Num 32:33-42
32 Moses then sent men to reconnoitre Jazer, and Israel took it and its dependencies, evicting the Amorites who lived there.
Jer 48:32 Num 32:1 Num 32:35 Isa 16:8-9 Num 32:3
33 They then turned and marched on Bashan. Og king of Bashan and all his people marched to meet them and give battle at Edrei.
Josh 13:12 Deut 1:4 Deut 29:7 Deut 3:1-6 Amos 4:1 Deut 4:47 Deut 32:14
34 Yahweh said to Moses, 'Do not be afraid of him, for I have put him, all his people and his country at your mercy. Treat him as you treated Sihon king of the Amorites, who lived in Heshbon.'
1Kgs 20:13 1Kgs 20:28 1Sam 23:4 2Kgs 3:18 2Sam 5:19 Deut 3:2-3 Deut 3:11
35 So they pressed their attack against him, his sons and all his people until there was no one left alive. And they took possession of his country.
