Numbers 20:1-29

Key verse 20:8

"Take the staff, and you and your brother Aaron gather the assembly together. Speak to that
rock before their eyes and it will pour out its water. You will bring water out of the rock for
the community so they and their livestock can drink."

himself holy (12a, 13)? What is God’s holiness described in this passage?

was the Edomite king’s reply (18-21)? What did God say to Moses and Aaron
at Mount Hor (23-26)? How did Moses obey (27, 28)? What did the
community do when it learnt of Aaron’s death (29)?
