And when the LORD sent you out from Kadesh Barnea,5 he said, "Go up and take possession6 of the land I have given you." But you rebelled7 against the command of the LORD your God. You did not trust8 him or obey him.
Otherwise, the country17 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,18 he brought them out to put them to death in the desert.'19
