Also I took that sinful thing of yours, the calf you had made, and burned it in the fire. Then I crushed it and ground it to powder as fine as dust1 and threw the dust into a stream that flowed down the mountain.2
And when the LORD sent you out from Kadesh Barnea,7 he said, "Go up and take possession8 of the land I have given you." But you rebelled9 against the command of the LORD your God. You did not trust10 him or obey him.
Otherwise, the country19 from which you brought us will say, 'Because the LORD was not able to take them into the land he had promised them, and because he hated them,20 he brought them out to put them to death in the desert.'21
