Numbers: Edom and Israel are of the same parentage. Edom = Esau and Israel = Jacob both sons of Isaac. So they are all family – but the Edomites, for whatever reason, refused the Israelites passage through Edom on their way toward the Promised Land. This will prove to be a symbolic act of war. It’s bad enough that Jacob and Esau didn’t get along (with good reason) but the bad feeling is now passed to their descendants. Aaron died right there on Mount Hor with his brother (Moses) and his son Eleazer, and God present.
