(Read Numbers 14 Part 1 First)

28 Now tell them this: `As surely as I live, I will do to you the very things I heard you say. I, the LORD, have spoken!

29 You will all die here in this wilderness! Because you complained against me, none of you who are twenty years old or older and were counted in the census

30 will enter the land I swore to give you. The only exceptions will be Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun.

31 " `You said your children would be taken captive. Well, I will bring them safely into the land, and they will enjoy what you have despised.

32 But as for you, your dead bodies will fall in this wilderness.

33 And your children will be like shepherds, wandering in the wilderness forty years. In this way, they will pay for your faithlessness, until the last of you lies dead in the wilderness.

34 " `Because the men who explored the land were there for forty days, you must wander in the wilderness for forty years--a year for each day, suffering the consequences of your sins. You will discover what it is like to have me for an enemy.'

35 I, the LORD, have spoken! I will do these things to every member of the community who has conspired against me. They will all die here in this wilderness!"

36 Then the ten scouts who had incited the rebellion against the LORD by spreading discouraging reports about the land

37 were struck dead with a plague before the LORD.

38 Of the twelve who had explored the land, only Joshua and Caleb remained alive.

39 When Moses reported the LORD's words to the Israelites, there was much sorrow among the people.

40 So they got up early the next morning and set out for the hill country of Canaan. "Let's go," they said. "We realize that we have sinned, but now we are ready to enter the land the LORD has promised us."

41 But Moses said, "Why are you now disobeying the LORD's orders to return to the wilderness? It won't work.

42 Do not go into the land now. You will only be crushed by your enemies because the LORD is not with you.

43 When you face the Amalekites and Canaanites in battle, you will be slaughtered. The LORD will abandon you because you have abandoned the LORD."

44 But the people pushed ahead toward the hill country of Canaan, despite the fact that neither Moses nor the Ark of the LORD's covenant left the camp.

45 Then the Amalekites and the Canaanites who lived in those hills came down and attacked them and chased them as far as Hormah.
