Deuteronomy 2: Then we turned


Then we turned and took our journey into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea. ... Now rise up, said I, and get you over the brook Zered. And we went over the brook Zered. ... I sent messengers out of the wilderness of Kedemoth unto Sihon King of Heshbon with words of peace. ... From Aroer, which is by the brink of the river Arnon, and from the city that is by the river, even until Gilead there was not one city too strong for us.

In other words:

Moses recounts there journey through the desert in detail.

Favorite bit:

(Deuteronomy 2:20,21) (That also was accounted a land of giants: giants dwelt therein in old time and the Ammonites call them Zamzummim.) A people great and many and tall, as the Anakim; but the Lord destroyed them before them; and they succeeded them, and dwelt in their stead.)  I like this because it was part of the story we hadn’t heard before.

Least favorite bit:

(Deuteronomy 2:25) This day will I being to put the dread of thee and the fear of thee upon the natuions that are under the whole heave, who shall hear report of thee and shall tremble, and be in anguish because of thee.

Moral Lesson Learned: 

Don’t mess with the Ammonites (Numbers 2)
