Israel journeyed as the Lord directed them

Deuteronomy Bible Background

Old Testament: Deu 2.1

To read the Bible in a year, read Deuteronomy 1–2 on March 6, In the year of our Lord Christ 2020

By Don Ruhl

Wherever Israel traveled in the wilderness, it was because the Lord had them go to that location. As the Book of Deuteronomy says:

“Then we turned and journeyed into the wilderness of the Way of the Red Sea, as the LORD spoke to me, and we skirted Mount Seir for many days.”

– Deuteronomy 2.1

The Lord took them out of Egypt and saved them from the pursuing Egyptians at the Red Sea, so He would surely take them to the land that He had promised them. They had to do just as He instructed them, and they would make it.

Questions:

  • What mountain did they skirt?
  • Do you know what nation that mountain is in?
