Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 20:2-13

_ _ there was no water for the congregation — There was at Kadesh a fountain, En-Mishpat (Genesis 14:7), and at the first encampment of the Israelites there was no want of water. It was then either partially dried up by the heat of the season, or had been exhausted by the demands of so vast a multitude.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 20:1-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 20:2

No water — Which having followed them through all their former journeys, began to fail them here, because they were now come near countries, where waters might be had by ordinary means, and therefore God would not use extraordinary, lest he should seem to prostitute the honour of miracles. This story, though like that, Exodus 17:1-7, is different from it, as appears by divers circumstances. It is a great mercy, to have plenty of water; a mercy which if we found the want of, we should own the worth of.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Numbers 20:2

And there was no water for the congregation: and they (c) gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron.

(c) Another rebellion was in Rephidim (Exo. 17:1-16), and this was in Kadesh.
