Then Moses and Aaron fell facedown1 in front of the whole Israelite assembly2 gathered there.
Joshua son of Nun3 and Caleb son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had explored the land, tore their clothes47
and said to the entire Israelite assembly, "The land we passed through and explored is exceedingly good.58
If the LORD is pleased with us,6 he will lead us into that land, a land flowing with milk and honey,7 and will give it to us.89
Only do not rebel9 against the LORD. And do not be afraid10 of the people of the land,11 because we will swallow them up. Their protection is gone, but the LORD is with12 us.13 Do not be afraid of them."1410
But the whole assembly talked about stoning15 them. Then the glory of the LORD16 appeared at the Tent of Meeting to all the Israelites.
