    Title: Moses Strikes the Rock at Horeb



    Medium: Woodcut

    Copyright: Public Domain


    The Hebrew people are without water in the desert. God tells Moses to go to a rock at Horeb, speak to it, and water will spout from it. Moses disobeys and strikes the rock, and water comes out. This act of disobedience prevents Moses from ever seeing the promise land.
