And the LORDspake unto Moses and unto Aaron,saying ,
How long shall I bear with this evilcongregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me.
28Say unto them, As truly as I live,saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:
Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twentyyearsold and upward, which have murmured against me,
Doubtless ye shall notcome into the land, concerning which I swarea to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.31
But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in , and they shall know the land which ye have despised .
But as for you, your carcases, they shall fall in this wilderness.33
And your children shall wanderb in the wildernessfortyyears, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness.34
After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even fortydays, each day for a year , shall ye bear your iniquities, even fortyyears, and ye shall know my breach of promise.
