Numbers 20:1-5 King James Version (KJV)
20 Then came the children of Israel, even the whole congregation, into the desert of Zin in the first month: and the people abode in Kadesh; and Miriam died there, and was buried there.
2 And there was no water for the congregation: and they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron.
3 And the people chode with Moses, and spake, saying, Would God that we had died when our brethren died before the LORD!
4 And why have ye brought up the congregation of theLORD into this wilderness, that we and our cattle should die there?
5 And wherefore have ye made us to come up out of Egypt, to bring us in unto this evil place? it is no place of seed, or of figs, or of vines, or of pomegranates; neither is there any water to drink.

Numbers 20:1-5 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Death of Miriam

20 Then the Israelites, the whole congregation, came into the Wilderness of Zin in the first month [in the fortieth year after leaving Egypt]. And the people lived in Kadesh. Miriam died there and was buried there.
2 Now there was no water for the congregation, and they gathered together against Moses and Aaron.3 The people contended with Moses, and said, “If only we had perished when our brothers perished [in the plague] before the LORD!4 Why have you brought up the assembly of theLORD into this wilderness to die here, we and our livestock? 5 Why have you made us come up from Egypt, to bring us to this wretched place? It is not a place of grain or of figs or of vines or of pomegranates, and there is no water to drink.”

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

1 Miriam died this was Moses sister the girl that watched him go down the Nile to Pharaoh’s daughter, the girl that went to get her mother so that their mother could raise him and she still could have time to get to know her brother, this would have been hard on Moses.

2 At a hard time for Moses they come against him again. Water was important and in the wilderness it would sometimes be hard to find.

3 They were wishing that they were dead rather then having faith that God could provide they wish for death, how many times do we find things hopeless and complain rather then pray.

4 They are misunderstanding God’s plans this often times happens when we get to this place that they were in, doubt causes us to forget what God promised us.

5 They are blaming Moses for leading them, they are not even acknowledging God’s leadership and we fall into this place when we place blame on others at times. Let us keep following God’s leadership and prayer for the church leaders like Moses today.

To be persecuted is to follow after Christ.
