The Command to Leave Horeb

Deuteronomy 1

1 These are the words which Moses spoke to all Israel a on this side of the Jordan in the wilderness, in the 1 plain opposite 2 Suph, between Paran, Tophel, Laban, Hazeroth, and Dizahab. 2 It is eleven days' journey from Horeb by way of Mount Seir b to Kadesh Barnea. 3 Now it came to pass c in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, that Moses spoke to the children of Israel according to all that the LORD had given him as commandments to them, 4 d after he had killed Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt in Heshbon, and Og king of Bashan, who dwelt at Ashtaroth e in 3 Edrei. 5 On this side of the Jordan in the land of Moab, Moses began to explain this law, saying, 6 "The LORD our God spoke to us f in Horeb, saying: 'You have dwelt long g enough at this mountain. 7 'Turn and take your journey, and go to the mountains of the Amorites, to all the neighboring places in the 4 plain, in the mountains and in the lowland, in the South and on the seacoast, to the land of the Canaanites and to Lebanon, as far as the great river, the River Euphrates. 8 'See, I have set the land before you; go in and possess the land which the LORD 5 swore to your fathers - to h Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob - to give to them and their descendants after them.'
