save Kalev the son of Yefunneh: he shall see it; and to him will I give the land that he has trodden on, and to his children, because he has wholly followed the LORD.
Also the LORD was angry with me for your sakes, saying, You also shall not go in there:
Yehoshua the son of Nun, who stands before you, he shall go in there: encourage you him; for he shall cause Yisra'el to inherit it.
Moreover your little ones, whom you said should be a prey, and your children, who this day have no knowledge of good or evil, they shall go in there, and to them will I give it, and they shall possess it.
But as for you, turn you, and take your journey into the wilderness by the way to the Sea of Suf.
Then you answered and said to me, We have sinned against the LORD, we will go up and fight, according to all that the LORD our God commanded us. You girded on every man his weapons of war, and were forward to go up into the hill-country.
The LORD said to me, Tell them, Don't go up, neither fight; for I am not among you; lest you be struck before your enemies.
So I spoke to you, and you didn't listen; but you rebelled against the mitzvah of the LORD, and were presumptuous, and went up into the hill-country.
The Amori, who lived in that hill-country, came out against you, and chased you, as bees do, and beat you down in Se`ir, even to Hormah.
You returned and wept before the LORD; but the LORD didn't listen to your voice, nor gave ear to you.
So you abode in Kadesh many days, according to the days that you abode [there].
