Moché a frappé le rocher :

Moché s’était alors tourné vers D.ieu qui lui avait dit : «Prends ton bâton, rassemblez le Peuple,toi et Aharon, ton frère. Tu parleras au rocher devant leurs yeux et il donnera son eau». Quand tous furent assemblés devant le rocher, Moché s’était adressé à eux : «Ecoutez, rebelles Devons-nous faire jaillir de l’eau de ce rocher ?» Moché avait levé la main et frappé le rocherdeux fois avec son bâton. L’eau avait jailli et le peuple et les troupeaux avaient bu.
C’est alors que D.ieu avait dit à Moché et à Aharon : «Parce que vous n’avez pas cru en moi pour Me sanctifier aux yeux des Enfants d’Israël, vous ne conduirez donc pas cette congrégation dans la terre que je leur ai donnée.»
Tels sont les simples faits. Leur interprétation est plus complexe. Quelle était exactement la nature du «crime» de Moché ? Pourquoi D.ieu punit-Il si sévèrement une erreur qui paraît mineure ?
Les commentateurs offrent de nombreuses réponses mais attardons-nous sur l’une d’entre elles. Na’hmanide explique que Moché pécha en disant au peuple : «Devons-nous faire jaillir de l’eau de ce rocher ?», mots qui semblent impliquer que faire jaillir de l’eau d’un rocher devait être imputé à Moché plutôt qu’à D.ieu.
Cependant, il est évident que ce n’était pas ce que Moché pensait. Il était le serviteur de D.ieu le plus loyal et le plus grand des prophètes. Mais cela ne signifie pas pour autant que ses auditeurs allaient interpréter correctement ses paroles (Loubavitch.fr)

How many non-red hairs disqualify a cow as a para aduma?
19:2 - Two.

  1. A man dies in a tent. What happens to the sealed metal and earthenware utensils in the tent?
    19:14,15 - The metal utensils are impure for seven days, even if they are sealed. The sealed earthenware vessels are unaffected.
  2. What happens to the one who: a) sprinkles the water mixed with the ashes of the para aduma; b) touches the water; c) carries the water?
    19:21 - a) Remains tahor; b) He, but not his clothing, contracts tumah; c) He and his clothing contract tumah.
  3. Why was the mitzvah of the para aduma entrusted to Elazar rather than to Aharon?
    19:22 - Because Aharon was involved in the sin of the golden calf.
  4. Why does the Torah stress that all of the congregation came to Midbar Tzin?
    20:1 - To teach that they were all fit to enter the Land; everyone involved in the sin of the spies already died.
  5. Why is Miriam's death taught after the laws of para aduma?
    20:1 - To teach that just as sacrifices bring atonement, so too does the death of the righteous.
  6. During their journey in the midbar, in whose merit did the Jewish People receive water?

  8. When Moshe told the King of Edom that the Jewish People would not drink from the well-water, to which well did he refer? What do we learn from this?
    20:17 - To the well that traveled with the nation in the midbar. This teaches that even if one has adequate provisions he should purchase goods from his host in order to benefit the host.

    20:22 - Har Sinai for receiving the Torah, Har Nevo for Moshe's burial, and Hor Hahar for Aharon's burial.

  11. What disappeared when Aharon died?
    20:29 - The clouds of glory disappeared, since they sheltered the Jews in Aharon's merit.

    21:1 - Amalek.
  13. For what two reasons did Hashem punish the people with snakes specifically?
    21:6 - The original snake, who was punished for speaking evil, is fitting to punish those who spoke evil about Hashem and about Moshe. And the snake, for whom everything tastes like dust, is fitting to punish those who complained about the manna which changed to any desired taste.
  14. Why did the Jewish People camp in Arnon, rather than pass through Moav to enter Eretz Canaan?
    21:13 - Moav refused them passage.
  15. What miracle took place at the valley of Arnon?
    21:15 - The Amorites hid in caves in the mountain on the Moabite side of the valley in order to ambush the Jews. When the Jews approached, the mountain on the Eretz Canaan side of the valley moved close to the other mountain and the Amorites were crushed.
  16. What was the "strength" of Amon that prevented the Jewish People from entering into their land?

  17. Why was Moshe afraid of Og?
    21:34 - Og had once been of service to Avraham. Moshe was afraid that this merit would assist Og in battle.
  18. Who killed Og?
    21:35 - Moshe.
