Numbers 21:4

Context
Fiery Serpents

21:4 Then they traveled from Mount Hor by the road to the Red Sea, 2  to go around the land of Edom, but the people 3  became impatient along the way.

1 sn The judgment on Israel is that they turn back to the desert and not attack the tribes in the land. So a parenthetical clause is inserted to state who was living there. They would surely block the entrance to the land from the south – unless God removed them. And he is not going to do that for Israel.

2 tn The “Red Sea” is the general designation for the bodies of water on either side of the Sinai peninsula, even though they are technically gulfs from the Red Sea.

3 tn Heb “the soul of the people,” expressing the innermost being of the people as they became frustrated.
