1 And Arad the Chananitish king who dwelt by the wilderness, heard that Israel came by the way of Atharin; and he made war on Israel, and carried off some of them captives. 2 And Israel vowed a vow to the Lord, and said, If thou wilt deliver this people into my power, I will devote it and its cities [to thee]. 3 And the Lord hearkened to the voice of Israel, and delivered the Chananite into his power; and [Israel] devoted him and his cities, and they called the name of that place Anathema. 4 And having departed from mount Or by the way [leading] to the Red Sea, they compassed the land of Edom, and the people lost courage by the way. 5 And the people spoke against God and against Moses, saying, Why is this? Hast thou brought us out of Egypt to slay us in the wilderness? for there is not bread nor water; and our soul loathes this light bread. 6 And the Lord sent among the people deadly serpents, and they bit the people, and much people of the children of Israel died. 7 And the people came to Moses and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee: pray therefore to the Lord, and let him take away the serpent from us. And Moses prayed to the Lord for the people; 8 and the Lord said to Moses, Make thee a serpent, and put it on a signal-[staff]; and it shall come to pass that whenever a serpent shall bite a man, every one [so] bitten that looks upon it shall live. 9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a signal-[staff]: and it came to pass that whenever a serpent bit a man, and he looked on the brazen serpent, he lived. 10 And the children of Israel departed, and encamped in Oboth. 11 And having departed from Oboth, they encamped in Achalgai, on the farther side in the wilderness, which is opposite Moab, toward the east. 12 And thence they departed, and encamped in the valley of Zared. 13 And they departed thence and encamped on the other side of Arnon in the wilderness, [the country] which extends from the coasts of the Amorites; for Arnon is the borders of Moab, between Moab and the Amorites. 14 Therefore it is said in a book, A war of the Lord has set on fire Zoob, and the brooks of Arnon. 15 And he has appointed brooks to cause Er to dwell [there]; and it lies near to the coasts of Moab. 16 And thence [they came to] the well; this [is] the well of which the Lord said to Moses, Gather the people, and I will give them water to drink. 17 Then Israel sang this song at the well, Begin [to sing] of the well; 18 the princes digged it, the kings of the nations in their kingdom, in their lordship sank it in the rock: and [they went] from the well to Manthanain, 19 and from Manthanain to Naaliel, and from Naaliel to Bamoth, and from Bamoth to Janen, which is in the plain of Moab [as seen] from the top of the quarried [rock] that looks toward the wilderness. 20 And Moses sent ambassadors to Seon king of the Amorites, with peaceable words, saying, 21 We will pass through thy land, we will go by the road; we will not turn aside to the field or to the vineyard. 22 We will not drink water out of thy well; we will go by the king’s highway, until we have past thy boundaries. 23 And Seon did not allow Israel to pass through his borders, and Seon gathered all his people, and went out to set the battle in array against Israel into the wilderness; and he came to Jassa, and set the battle in array against Israel. 24 And Israel smote him with the slaughter of the sword, and they became possessors of his land, from Arnon to Jaboc, as far as the children of Amman, for Jazer is the borders of the children of Amman. 25 And Israel took all their cities, and Israel dwelt in all the cities of the Amorites, in Esebon, and in all cities belonging to it. 26 For Esebon is the city of Seon king of the Amorites; and he before fought against the king of Moab, and they took all his land, from Aroer to Arnon. 27 Therefore say they who deal in dark speeches, Come to Esebon, that the city of Seon may be built and prepared. 28 For a fire has gone forth from Esebon, a flame from the city of Seon, and has consumed as far as Moab, and devoured the pillars of Arnon. 29 Woe to thee, Moab; thou art lost, thou people of Chamos: their sons are sold for preservation, and their daughters are captives to Seon king of the Amorites. 30 And their seed shall perish [from] Esebon to Daebon; and their women have yet farther kindled a fire against Moab. 31 And Israel dwelt in all the cities of the Amorites. 32 And Moses sent to spy out Jazer; and they took it, and its villages, and cast out the Amorite that dwelt there. 33 And having returned, they went up the road that leads to Basan; and Og the king of Basan went forth to meet them, and all his people to war to Edrain. 34 And the Lord said to Moses, Fear him not; for I have delivered him and all his people, and all his land, into thy hands; and thou shalt do to him as thou didst to Seon king of the Amorites, who dwelt in Esebon. 35 And he smote him and his sons, and all his people, until he left none of his to be taken alive; and they inherited his land. ΚΑΙ ἤκουσεν ὁ Χανανεὶς βασιλεὺς ᾿Αρὰδ ὁ κατοικῶν κατὰ τὴν ἔρημον, ὅτι ἦλθεν ᾿Ισραὴλ ὁδὸν ᾿Αθαρείν, καὶ ἐπολέμησε πρὸς ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ καταπροενόμευσεν ἐξ αὐτῶν αἰχμαλωσίαν. 2 καὶ ηὔξατο ᾿Ισραὴλ εὐχὴν Κυρίῳ καὶ εἶπεν· ἐάν μοι παραδῷς τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον ὑποχείριον, ἀναθεματιῶ αὐτὸν καὶ τὰς πόλεις αὐτοῦ. 3 καὶ εἰσήκουσε Κύριος τῆς φωνῆς ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ παρέδωκε τὸν Χανανεὶν ὑποχείριον αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἀνεθεμάτισεν αὐτὸν καὶ τὰς πόλεις αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἐπεκάλεσαν τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου ᾿Ανάθεμα. 4 Καὶ ἀπάραντες ἐξ ῍Ωρ τοῦ ὄρους ὁδὸν ἐπὶ θάλασσαν ἐρυθρὰν περιεκύκλωσαν γῆν ᾿Εδώμ· καὶ ὠλιγοψύχησεν ὁ λαὸς ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ. 5 καὶ κατελάλει ὁ λαὸς πρὸς τὸν Θεὸν καὶ κατὰ Μωυσῆ λέγοντες· ἱνατί τοῦτο; ἐξήγαγες ἡμᾶς ἐξ Αἰγύπτου, ἀποκτεῖναι ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ; ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν ἄρτος οὐδὲ ὕδωρ, ἡ δὲ ψυχὴ ἡμῶν προσώχθισεν ἐν τῷ ἄρτῳ τῷ διακένῳ τούτῳ. 6 καὶ ἀπέστειλε Κύριος εἰς τὸν λαὸν τοὺς ὄφεις τοὺς θανατοῦντας, καὶ ἔδακνον τὸν λαόν, καὶ ἀπέθανε λαὸς πολὺς τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ισραήλ. 7 καὶ παραγενόμενος ὁ λαὸς πρὸς Μωυσῆν ἔλεγον· ὅτι ἡμάρτομεν, ὅτι κατελαλήσαμεν κατὰ τοῦ Κυρίου καὶ κατὰ σοῦ· εὖξαι οὖν πρὸς Κύριον, καὶ ἀφελέτω ἀφ’ ἡμῶν τὸν ὄφιν. καὶ ηὔξατο Μωυσῆς πρὸς Κύριον περὶ τοῦ λαοῦ. 8 καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν· ποίησον σεαυτῷ ὄφιν καὶ θὲς αὐτὸν ἐπὶ σημείου, καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν δάκῃ ὄφις ἄνθρωπον, πᾶς ὁ δεδηγμένος ἰδὼν αὐτὸν ζήσεται. 9 καὶ ἐποίησε Μωυσῆς ὄφιν χαλκοῦν καὶ ἔστησεν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ σημείου, καὶ ἐγένετο ὅταν ἔδακνεν ὄφις ἄνθρωπον, καὶ ἐπέβλεψεν ἐπὶ τὸν ὄφιν τὸν χαλκοῦν καὶ ἔζη. 10 Καὶ ἀπῇραν οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ παρενέβαλον ἐν ᾿Ωβώθ. 11 καὶ ἐξάραντες ἐξ ᾿Ωβώθ, καὶ παρενέβαλον ἐν ᾿Αχαλγαὶ ἐκ τοῦ πέραν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ, ἥ ἐστι κατὰ πρόσωπον Μωάβ, κατ’ ἀνατολὰς ἡλίου. 12 καὶ ἐκεῖθεν ἀπῇραν καὶ παρενέβαλον εἰς φάραγγα Ζαρέδ. 13 καὶ ἐκεῖθεν ἀπάραντες παρενέβαλον εἰς τὸ πέραν ᾿Αρνῶν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ, τὸ ἐξέχον ἀπὸ τῶν ὁρίων τῶν ᾿Αμορραίων· ἔστι γὰρ ᾿Αρνῶν ὅρια Μωὰβ ἀνὰ μέσον Μωὰβ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ ᾿Αμορραίου. 14 διὰ τοῦτο λέγεται ἐν βιβλίῳ· πόλεμος τοῦ Κυρίου τὴν Ζωὸβ ἐφλόγιζε, καὶ τοὺς χειμάρρους ᾿Αρνῶν, 15 καὶ τοὺς χειμάρρους κατέστησε κατοικίσαι ῎Ηρ, καὶ πρόσκειται τοῖς ὁρίοις Μωάβ. 16 καὶ ἐκεῖθεν τὸ φρέαρ· τοῦτο τὸ φρέαρ, ὃ εἶπε Κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν· συνάγαγε τὸν λαόν, καὶ δώσω αὐτοῖς ὕδωρ πιεῖν. 17 τότε ᾖσεν ᾿Ισραὴλ τὸ ᾆσμα τοῦτο ἐπὶ τοῦ φρέατος· ἐξάρχετε αὐτῷ· φρέαρ, 18 ὤρυξαν αὐτὸ ἄρχοντες, ἐξελατόμησαν αὐτὸ βασιλεῖς ἐθνῶν ἐν τῇ βασιλείᾳ αὐτῶν, ἐν τῷ κυριεῦσαι αὐτῶν. καὶ ἀπὸ φρέατος εἰς Μανθαναείν· 19 καὶ ἀπὸ Μανθαναεὶν εἰς Νααλιήλ· καὶ ἀπὸ Νααλιὴλ εἰς Βαμώθ· καὶ ἀπὸ Βαμὼθ εἰς ᾿Ιανήν, ἥ ἐστιν ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ Μωὰβ ἀπὸ κορυφῆς τοῦ λελαξευμένου τὸ βλέπον κατὰ πρόσωπον τῆς ἐρήμου. 20 Καὶ ἀπέστειλε Μωυσῆς πρέσβεις πρὸς Σηὼν βασιλέα ᾿Αμορραίων λόγοις εἰρηνικοῖς λέγων· 21 παρελευσόμεθα διὰ τῆς γῆς σου· τῇ ὁδῷ πορευσόμεθα, οὐκ ἐκκλινοῦμεν οὔτε εἰς ἀγρὸν οὔτε εἰς ἀμπελῶνα, 22 οὐ πιόμεθα ὕδωρ ἐκ φρέατός σου· ὁδῷ βασιλικῇ πορευσόμεθα, ἕως παρέλθωμεν τὰ ὅριά σου. 23 καὶ οὐκ ἔδωκε Σηὼν τῷ ᾿Ισραὴλ παρελθεῖν διὰ τῶν ὁρίων αὐτοῦ, καὶ συνήγαγε Σηὼν πάντα τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξῆλθε παρατάξασθαι τῷ ᾿Ισραὴλ εἰς τὴν ἔρημον καὶ ἦλθεν εἰς ᾿Ιασσὰ καὶ παρετάξατο τῷ ᾿Ισραήλ. 24 καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτὸν ᾿Ισραὴλ φόνῳ μαχαίρας καὶ κατεκυρίευσαν τῆς γῆς αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ ᾿Αρνῶν ἕως ᾿Ιαβόκ, ἕως υἱῶν ᾿Αμμάν· ὅτι ᾿Ιαζὴρ ὅρια υἱῶν ᾿Αμμάν ἐστι. 25 καὶ ἔλαβεν ᾿Ισραὴλ πάσας τὰς πόλεις ταύτας, καὶ κατῴκησεν ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν πάσαις ταῖς πόλεσι τῶν ᾿Αμορραίων, ἐν ᾿Εσεβὼν καὶ ἐν πάσαις ταῖς συγκυρούσαις αὐτῇ. 26 ἔστι γὰρ ᾿Εσεβὼν πόλις Σηὼν τοῦ βασιλέως τῶν ᾿Αμορραίων, καὶ οὗτος ἐπολέμησε βασιλέα Μωὰβ τὸ πρότερον καὶ ἔλαβον πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ ᾿Αροὴρ ἕως ᾿Αρνῶν. 27 διὰ τοῦτο ἐροῦσιν οἱ αἰνιγματισταί· ἔλθετε εἰς ᾿Εσεβών, ἵνα οἰκοδομηθῇ καὶ κατασκευασθῇ πόλις Σηών. 28 ὅτι πῦρ ἐξῆλθεν ἐξ ᾿Εσεβών, φλὸξ ἐκ πόλεως Σηὼν καὶ κατέφαγεν ἕως Μωὰβ καὶ κατέπιε στήλας ᾿Αρνῶν. 29 οὐαί σοι, Μωάβ· ἀπώλου, λαὸς Χαμώς. ἀπεδόθησαν οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτῶν διασῴζεσθαι καὶ αἱ θυγατέρες αὐτῶν αἰχμάλωτοι τῷ βασιλεῖ τῶν ᾿Αμορραίων Σηών· 30 καὶ τὸ σπέρμα αὐτῶν ἀπολεῖται, ᾿Εσεβὼν ἕως Δαιβών, καὶ αἱ γυναῖκες ἔτι προσεξέκαυσαν πῦρ ἐπὶ Μωάβ. 31 Κατώκησε δὲ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν πάσαις ταῖς πόλεσι τῶν ᾿Αμορραίων. 32 καὶ ἀπέστειλε Μωυσῆς κατασκέψασθαι τὴν ᾿Ιαζήρ, καὶ κατελάβοντο αὐτὴν καὶ τὰς κώμας αὐτῆς καὶ ἐξέβαλον τὸν ᾿Αμορραῖον τὸν κατοικοῦντα ἐκεῖ. 33 καὶ ἐπιστρέψαντες ἀνέβησαν ὁδὸν τὴν εἰς Βασάν· καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ῍Ωγ βασιλεὺς τῆς Βασὰν εἰς συνάντησιν αὐτοῖς καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς αὐτοῦ εἰς πόλεμον εἰς ᾿Εδραείν. 34 καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν· μὴ φοβηθῇς αὐτόν, ὅτι εἰς τὰς χεῖράς σου παραδέδωκα αὐτὸν καὶ πάντα τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ποιήσεις αὐτῷ καθὼς ἐποίησας τῷ Σηὼν βασιλεῖ τῶν ᾿Αμορραίων, ὃς κατῴκει ἐν ᾿Εσεβών. 35 καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτὸν καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ, ἕως τοῦ μὴ καταλιπεῖν αὐτοῦ ζωγρείαν· καὶ ἐκληρονόμησαν τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ.
