Bible: Deuteronomy 2:1-7

The Journey from Kadesh Barnea to Moab

2:1 Then we turned and set out toward the desert land on the way to the Red Sea 1  just as the Lord told me to do, detouring around Mount Seir for a long time. 2:2 At this point the Lord said to me, 2:3 You have circled around this mountain long enough; now turn north. 2:4 Instruct 2  these people as follows: ‘You are about to cross the border of your relatives 3  the descendants of Esau, 4  who inhabit Seir. They will be afraid of you, so watch yourselves carefully. 2:5 Do not be hostile toward them, because I am not giving you any of their land, not even a footprint, for I have given Mount Seir 5  as an inheritance for Esau. 2:6 You may purchase 6  food to eat and water to drink from them. 2:7 All along the way I, the Lord your God, 7  have blessed your every effort. 8  I have 9  been attentive to 10  your travels through this great wasteland. These forty years I have 11  been with you; you have lacked for nothing.’
