Moses recounted further wanderings and conflicts in the wilderness.
“After remaining many days in Kadesh, we turned and took our journey into the wilderness via the Red Sea as the Lord commanded us, and the journey took several days as we compassed Mount Seir.”
Then the Lord said to me, “You have walked around this mountain long enough. Therefore turn and take your journey Northward and command the people, and tell them they are to pass through the borders of your brethren the children of Esau who dwell in Seir, and they shall be afraid of you. Therefore be very careful. Do not meddle with them, for I will not give you their land, not so much as an inch; for I have given Mount Seir to them for a possession. You shall buy food and water of them for money, that you may eat and drink. For I the Lord has blessed thee in all the works of your hands; He knows your walking through that great wilderness; the Lord your God was with you and you lacked nothing”
