The People Rebel

1 Then all the congregation alifted up their voices and cried, and the people wept bthat night. 2 All the sons of Israel 1grumbled against Moses and Aaron; and the whole congregation said to them, "2Would that we had died in the land of Egypt! Or would that we had died in this wilderness! 3 "Why is the LORD bringing us into this land, 3to fall by the sword? 4Our wives and our little ones will become plunder; would it not be better for us to return to Egypt?" 4 So they said to one another, "5Let us appoint a leader and return to Egypt." 5 6Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces in the presence of all the assembly of the congregation of the sons of Israel. 6 Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, of those who had spied out the land, tore their clothes; 7 and they spoke to all the congregation of the sons of Israel, saying, "7The land which we passed through to spy out is an exceedingly good land. 8 "8If the LORD is pleased with us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us-9a land which flows with milk and honey. 9 "Only 10do not rebel against the LORD; and do not 11fear the people of the land, for they will be our cprey. Their dprotection has been removed from them, and the LORD is with us; do not fear them." 10 12But all the congregation said to stone them with stones. Then 13the glory of the LORD appeared in the tent of meeting to all the sons of Israel.
