The Fifth Book of Moses, called [a]Deuteronomy

2 A brief rehearsal of things done before, from Horeb unto Kadesh Barnea. 32 Moses reproveth the people for their incredulity. 44 The Israelites are overcome by the Amorites because they fought against the commandment of the Lord.

These be the words which Moses spake unto all Israel, on [b]this side Jordan in the wilderness, in the plain, [c]over against the red sea, between Paran and Tophel, and Laban, and Hazeroth, and Dizahab.

There are eleven days’ journey from [d]Horeb unto Kadesh Barnea, by the way of mount Seir.

And it came to pass in the first day of the eleventh month, in the fortieth year that Moses spake unto the children of Israel according unto all that the Lord hath given him in commandment unto them.
