Deuteronomy 2:14

Deuteronomy 2:14

And the space in which we came from Kadeshbarnea
The space of time; or, "the days" F2; the number of them:

until we were come over the brook Zered, was thirty and eight years;
that is, from the time that the spies were sent and searched the land, and brought a report of it; for they were sent from Kadeshbarnea, ( Numbers 32:8 ) unto the passage of the Israelites over Zered, were thirty eight years; so long they had been travelling in the wilderness, after they were come to the borders of the land:

until all the generation of the men of war were wasted out from among
the host;
all that were twenty years old and upwards, and fit to go out to war upon occasion, when the people were first numbered after they came out of Egypt; all that generation was now consumed within the above space of time, excepting two, Caleb and Joshua;

as the Lord sware unto them;
( Numbers 14:21 Numbers 14:23 Numbers 14:30 ) .
