And the LORD said to Moses and to Aaron,
"How long shall this wicked congregation murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the people of Israel, which they murmur against me.
Say to them, 'As I live,' says the LORD, 'what you have said in my hearing I will do to you:
your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness; and of all your number, numbered from twenty years old and upward, who have murmured against me,
not one shall come into the land where I swore that I would make you dwell, except Caleb the son of Jephun'neh and Joshua the son of Nun.
But your little ones, who you said would become a prey, I will bring in, and they shall know the land which you have despised.
But as for you, your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness.
And your children shall be shepherds in the wilderness forty years, and shall suffer for your faithlessness, until the last of your dead bodies lies in the wilderness.
According to the number of the days in which you spied out the land, forty days, for every day a year, you shall bear your iniquity, forty years, and you shall know my displeasure.'
