When Water Flowed out of a Rock
Exodus 17: 1-8
upon a time a great many people left their homes and started to move to a
new country. They had to walk all the long way. The little boys and girls
and even the old grandfathers and grandmothers had to walk, too.
the road, which they traveled, led through pleasant places, where the
ground was smooth and easy to walk upon.
Sometimes it led across hills and through valleys, where the ground
was rough; then they would feel very tired.
day these travelers came to a desert place. Everywhere they looked they
saw sand and rocks. And the sun shone down so warm upon their heads that
soon they felt tired and thirsty. In a short time they had drunk every
drop of the water, which they had brought for the day's journey.
Moses, their brave leader, prayed to God. And God said, "Take your
rod and go before these people to the rock in Horeb.
I will be there and when you strike the rock, water will flow out
