Deuteronomy 1:2-4 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

It is a journey of eleven days from Horeb[a] to Kadesh-barnea by way of the highlands of Seir.

In the fortieth year,[b] on the first day of the eleventh month, Moses spoke to the Israelites according to all that the Lord had commanded him to speak to them, after he had defeated Sihon, king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon, and Og, king of Bashan, who reigned in Ashtaroth and in Edrei.


  1. 1:2 Horeb: an alternative name for Mount Sinai, the wilderness mountain where the Israelites received revelation from God (cf. Ex 3; 19). Kadesh-barnea: the southern gateway to the land of Canaan, from which Moses sent spies to reconnoiter the land (cf. Nm 13:26; 32:8). Seir: Edom, the land just south of Moab.
  2. 1:3 Fortieth year: counting from the exodus from Egypt (cf. Ex 12:2; 13:20–22).
