Water from the rock

An examination narration of Numbers 20:1-13 by Jemimah aged 7 ¾!

Moses brings forth Water out of the Rock about 1500 by a follower of Filippino Lippi in The National Gallery in London.

“Because you did not trust in me enough to honour me as holy in the sight of the Israelites, you will not bring this community into the land I give them.”

To whom did the LORD speak these words and why?

The LORD spoke these words to Moses and Aaron.

The Israelites were complaining because they were thirsty. They said, “We were better off when we were with Pharaoh and the Egyptians. It least we had food and drink there and ate what we pleased, and we could walk around and do pretty much everything we pleased. But here, we are walking day and night non-stop. We are sick of doing this. We want water.

Then hearing this Moses prayed to God saying, “What should I do? Tell me LORD” And God said to him, “Say to the Israelites, “Must I talk to this rock?” Then talk to the rock and tell it to flow water.”

So Moses almost did what the LORD said, but he did not talk to the rock. He struck the rock with his staff.

Then the LORD was very angry with Moses. He said, “You will not bring these people to the promised land because you disobeyed me.”

Then the Lord God brought Moses up to the mountain. He also brought Aaron because Aaron had defied the LORD too. He said,” You will only see the promised land but you will not bring your people there. Then Moses saw the beauty and splendour that God meant. Then Aaron saw and then they both fell down dead. Aaron’s son was next in line to be priest, and there was 40 days of mourning for Moses and Aaron for the people loved them muchly.
