 2:29
2:29 just as we passed by the territory of Esau in Seir and Moab in Ar. We only wish to cross the Jordan to the land that God our Lord is giving us.'
Ka'asher asu-li beney Esav hayoshvim beSe'ir vehaMoavim hayoshvim be'Ar ad asher-e'evor et-haYarden el-ha'arets asher-Adonay Eloheynu noten lanu.



Commentary:

just as we passed by...
  (Ibn Ezra), without fighting (Lekach Tov), and with them selling us food (Rashi; cf. Ramban on Deuteronomy 23:5). Literally, 'as they did to me.' However, Edom (Esau) did not actually let the Israelites pass through their land (Numbers 20:21).
