View In My Bible
13 And {Yahweh became angry},a and he made them wander in the desert forty years until the entire generation who did evil in the {sight of Yahweh}b {had died}.c 14 Behold, you stand in the place of your fathers, a brood of sinful men, to increase still more {Yahweh's fierce anger}d against Israel. 15 If you turn from following him, he will again abandon theme in the wilderness, and you would have destroyed all these people." 16 They came near to him and said, "We will build sheep pens here for [the] flock of our livestock and cities for our little children; 17 but we ourselves will become armed [and] ready before the {Israelites}f until we have brought them to their place, and our little children will live in the fortified cities because of the inhabitants of the land. 18 We will not return to our houses until the {Israelites}g each obtain theirh inheritance for themselves. 19 For we will not take possession with them from across the Jordan and beyond because our inheritance has come to us from across the Jordan to the east." 20 So Moses said to them, "If you do this thing, if you arm yourselves {before}i Yahweh for the war, 21 and everyone of you armed cross the Jordan {before}j Yahweh until he has driven out his enemies from before him, 22 and the land is subdued {before}k Yahweh, then afterward you will return and be free of obligation from Yahweh and from Israel, and this land will be your property {before}l Yahweh. 23 But if you do not do so, behold, you have sinned against Yahweh, and know that your sin will find you.
