ADONAI said to Moshe and Aharon,
"How long am I to put up with this evil community who keep grumbling about me? I have heard the complaints of the people of Isra'el, which they continue to raise against me.
Tell them this: 'As surely as I live, ADONAI swears, as surely as you have spoken in my ears, I will do this to you:
your carcasses will fall in this desert! Every single one of you who were included in the census over the age of twenty, you who have complained against me,
will certainly not enter the land about which I raised my hand to swear that I would have you live in it - except for Kalev the son of Y'funeh and Y'hoshua the son of Nun.
But your little ones, who you said would be taken as booty - them I will bring in. They will know the land you have rejected.
But you, your carcasses will fall in this desert;
and your children will wander about in the desert for forty years bearing the consequences of your prostitutions until the desert eats up your carcasses.
It will be a year for every day you spent reconnoitering the land that you will bear the consequences of your offenses - forty days, forty years. Then you will know what it means to oppose me!
