    Chapter 22 - Water from the Rock—Living Water

    “Rock of Ages cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee.”EVCO 262.1

    And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, by their journeys, according to the commandment of the Lord, and pitched in Rephidim; and there was no water for the people to drink. Wherefore the people strove with Moses, and said, Give us water that we may drink.EVCO 262.2

    “And Moses said unto them, Why strive ye with me? Wherefore do ye tempt the Lord? And the people thirsted there for water; and the people murmured against Moses, and said. Wherefore hast then brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our cattle with thirst?EVCO 262.3

    “And Moses cried unto the Lord, saying, What shall I do unto this people? they be almost ready to stone me. And the Lord said unto Moses, Pass on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go. Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smile the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink.EVCO 262.4

    “And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel. And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the striving of the people of Israel, and because they tempted the Lord, saying, Is the Lord among us, or not?” 1Exodus 17:1-7.EVCO 263.1

    We have seen that in the manna God was giving the people spiritual food. In like manner we read, with reference to the event just narrated, that they “did all drink the same spiritual drink; for they drank of that Rock that followed [margin, “went with”] them; and that Rock was Christ.” 21 Corinthians 10:4.EVCO 263.2
