Num 14:1 And all the congregation lifted up their voice and cried; and the people wept during that night.
Num 14:2 And all the sons of Israel murmured against Moses, and against Aaron. And all the congregation said to them, Oh that we had died in the land of Egypt, or in this wilderness, oh that we had died!
Num 14:3 And why is Jehovah bringing us into this land to fall by the sword? Our wives and our infants have become a prey. Is it not good for us to return to Egypt?
Num 14:4 And they said each to his brother, Let us give a leader and return to Egypt.
Num 14:5 And Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the sons of Israel.
Num 14:6 And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, of those who spied out the land, tore their garments.
Num 14:7 And they spoke to all the congregation of the sons of Israel, saying, The land into which we passed, to spy it out, is an exceedingly good land.
Num 14:8 If Jehovah has delighted in us, then He will bring us into this land and will give it to us, a land which is flowing with milk and honey.
Num 14:9 Only, do not rebel against Jehovah. And you, do not fear the people of the land, for they are our bread; their defense has turned away from them; and Jehovah is with us; do not be afraid of them.
Num 14:10 And all the congregation said to stone them with stones. And the glory of Jehovah appeared in the tabernacle of the congregation, to all the sons of Israel.
Num 14:11 And Jehovah said to Moses, Until when will this people despise Me? And until when will they continue not to believe in Me for all the signs I have done in its midst?
Num 14:12 I shall strike it with pestilence and dispossess it. And I will make you a nation greater and mightier than it.
Num 14:13 And Moses said to Jehovah, And the Egyptians will hear. For You have brought up this people out of their midst with Your power.
Num 14:14 And they will say to the one living in this land, They have heard that You, Jehovah, are in the midst of this people, who is seen eye to eye. You are Jehovah, and Your cloud stands over them; in a pillar of cloud You go before them by day, and in a pillar of fire by night.
Num 14:15 And will You cause this people to die as one man? Then the nations who have heard Your fame will speak, saying,
Num 14:16 Because Jehovah is not able to bring this people into the land which He swore to them, therefore He has slain them in the wilderness.
Num 14:17 And now, I beseech You, let the power of my Lord be great, as You have spoken, saying,
Num 14:18 Jehovah is slow to anger, and of great mercy, bearing away iniquity and transgression; and by no means will clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the sons, on the third and on the fourth generation .
Num 14:19 I pray, forgive the iniquity of this people, according to the greatness of Your mercy, and as You have gone with this people from Egypt, even until now.
Num 14:20 And Jehovah said, I have forgiven according to your word;
Num 14:21 but as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of Jehovah;
Num 14:22 for all the men who are seeing My glory, and My miracles which I have done in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tried Me these ten times, and have not listened to My voice,
Num 14:23 they shall not see the land which I have sworn to their fathers. Yea, not one of those scorning Me shall see it.
Num 14:24 And My servant Caleb, because there is another spirit in him, and he is fully following Me, I shall bring him into the land into which he has gone, and his seed shall possess it.
Num 14:25 And the Amalekite and the Canaanite were living in the valley. Tomorrow turn and pull up stakes for yourselves; going into the wilderness, the way of the Sea of Reeds.
Num 14:26 And Jehovah spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,
Num 14:27 Until when shall I bear with this evil company who are murmuring against Me? I have heard the murmurings of the sons of Israel which they are murmuring against Me.
Num 14:28 Say to them, As I live, says Jehovah, as surely as you have spoken in My ears, so I will do to you.
Num 14:29 Your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness, even all your numbered sons, as to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, in that you have murmured against Me.
Num 14:30 You shall certainly not come into the land which I lifted up My hand to cause you to live in it, except Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun.
Num 14:31 As for your infants, of whom you have said, They shall be a prey, I shall bring them in, and they shall know the land which you have rejected.
Num 14:32 As for you, your carcases shall fall in this wilderness.
Num 14:33 And your sons shall be shepherds in the wilderness forty years, and shall bear your fornications until your carcases are wasted in the wilderness;
Num 14:34 by the number of the days in which you spied out the land, forty days, a day for a year, a day for a year; you shall bear your iniquities forty years; you shall know My alienation from you.
Num 14:35 I am Jehovah; I have spoken. I shall do this to all this evil company who are gathered together against Me. They shall be brought to an end in this wilderness, and there they shall die.
Num 14:36 And the men whom Moses had sent to spy out the land, and who, when they returned, made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up an evil report against the land,
Num 14:37 even those men bringing up an evil report of the land died by the plague before Jehovah.
Num 14:38 But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, remained alive of those men that went to spy out the land.
Num 14:39 And Moses told these words to all the sons of Israel; and the people mourned deeply.
Num 14:40 And they rose up early in the morning and went up to the top of the mountain, saying, Behold, we are here, and we will go up to the place which Jehovah has said, for we have sinned.
Num 14:41 And Moses said, Why do you now transgress the mouth of Jehovah, since it will not prosper?
Num 14:42 Do not go up, for Jehovah is not in your midst, and you will be defeated by your enemies.
Num 14:43 For the Amalekite and the Canaanite are there before you; and you shall fall by the sword because you have turned back from following Jehovah; and Jehovah is not with you.
Num 14:44 And they presumed to go up to the top of the mountain, but the ark of the covenant of Jehovah and Moses did not leave the middle of the camp.
Num 14:45 And the Amalekite and the Canaanite living in that mountain came down and struck them, and beat them down, to Hormah.
