Numbers 20:11-13 King James Version (KJV)
11 And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also.
12 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.
13 This is the water of Meribah; because the children of Israel strove with the LORD, and he was sanctified in them.

Numbers 20:11-13 New King James Version (NKJV)

11 Then Moses lifted his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came out abundantly, and the congregation and their animals drank.
12 Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not believe Me, to hallow Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.”
13 This was the water of Meribah, because the children of Israel contended with the LORD, and He was hallowed among them.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

11 So the need was provided but disobedience was done, this may have seemed small to Moses and the people but was big to God and in next verse Moses learns how big this sinful action was. Our sins have results.

12 Moses disobeyed God; he listened to what the people wanted rather then to listen to God. Moses showed a lack of reverence before the people. This one mistake but was a big mistake, it showed faith in himself as much as God. God couldn’t let help lead them into the promise land because his heart wasn’t right for that even though he had the heart of a leader because of his love for the people, he just put that love before his love for God and what was right. We may miss opportunities God has for us when we disobey Him.

13 They were in division with the Lord, this means they needed to repent not that God was done with them. God is never done with His people but sometimes we have to repent so we can be back in fellowship with God and that is what they needed to do but that still didn’t mean they would go into the promised land because only two who left Egypt would and they would because they showed continually faith.
