<Bible, English, King James, According to the documentary hypothesis

The stations list is a text reconstructed by joining together small scattered parts of the torah, mostly from Numbers, but also from Exodus. In the documentary hypothesis, it is believed to have been used by the redactor of the torah, to cover the joins between the redactor's main source texts.

There are two versions of the text, the first is the one that is scattered throughout Numbers and Exodus, the second is found complete (with minor interruptions) at Numbers 33:1-3a, 33:5-37, 33:41-49.

The numbering and sections exist only for the ease of modern readers, and do not reflect in any way any such numbering or partitioning in the original text

  • Bamoth translates as "high places", i.e. mountains
  • Ijeabirim translates as "mounds of Abirim", and was abbreviated as iim, meaning "mounds"
  • The location at the other side of Arnon is given in Version 1 as Dibongad
  • Nebo is a mountain, one of whose peaks is called Pisgah (it is referred to by both names, in Deuteronomy, in the same verse)
