Moses and the Israelites were walking in the wilderness for three days without water
Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve springs of water and seventy palm trees; and they camped there by the water.
The had now been walking for a few weeks. The Israelites complained about having no food and were starving.
Then the Lord said to Moses, “I am going to rain bread from heaven for you, and each day the people shall go out and gather enough for that day. In that way I will test them, whether they will follow my instruction or not." So God gave them some food to satisfy their hunger.
They continued their journey through the wilderness. Once again, they had no water and began complaining to Moses. They were wondering why Moses had taken them into the wilderness to die from thirst.
Moses turned to God for advice and God said for him to strike the rock and water will come out. Moses did this in front of the Israelite elders and they asked whether God was in their presence.
