The Water of Meribah
8 “Take° athe rod°; and you and your brother° Aaron° assemble° the congregation° and speak° to the rock° before their eyes°, that it may yield° its water°. You shall thus bring° forth° water° for them out of the rock° and let the congregation° and their beasts° drink°.”

And he said° to them, “aListen° now°, you rebels°; shall we bring° forth° water° for you out of this° rock°?” 11 Then Moses° lifted° up his hand° and struck° the rock° twice° with his rod°; and awater° came° forth° abundantly°, and the congregation° and their beasts° drank°. 12 But the LORD° said° to Moses° and Aaron°, “aBecause° you have not believed° Me, to treat° Me as holy° in the sight° of the sons° of Israel°, therefore° you shall not bring° this° assembly° into the land° which° I have given° them.” 13 Those° [were] the waters° of IaMeribah°, IIbecause° the sons° of Israel° contended° with the LORD°, and He proved° Himself holy° among them.

Moses at Kadesh desireth passage through Edom, which is denied him.
