The LORD Pardons and Rebukes

20 So the LORD said, "1I have pardoned them according to your word; 21 but indeed, 2as I live, a3all the earth will be filled with the glory of the LORD. 22 "Surely 4all the men who have seen My glory and My signs which I performed in Egypt and in the wilderness, yet 5have put Me to the test these ten times and have not listened to My voice, 23 6shall by no means see the land which I swore to their fathers, nor shall any of those who spurned Me see it. 24 "But My servant Caleb, 7because he has had a different spirit and has followed Me fully, b8I will bring into the land cwhich he entered, and his ddescendants shall take possession of it. 25 "9Now the Amalekites and the Canaanites live in the valleys; turn tomorrow and set out to the wilderness by the way of the eRed Sea." 26 The LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, 27 "How long shall I bear with this evil congregation who are 10grumbling against Me? I have heard the complaints of the sons of Israel, which they are fmaking against Me. 28 "Say to them, '11As I live,' says the LORD, 'just as 12you have spoken in My hearing, so I will surely do to you; 29 13your corpses will fall in this wilderness, even all 14your gnumbered men, according to your complete number from twenty years old and upward, who have grumbled against Me. 30 'Surely you shall not come into the land in which I hswore to settle you, 15except Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun. 31 '16Your children, however, whom you said would become a prey -I will bring them in, and they will know the land which you have rejected. 32 '17But as for you, your corpses will fall in this wilderness. 33 'Your sons shall be shepherds for 18forty years in the wilderness, and they will isuffer for your junfaithfulness, until your corpses klie in the wilderness. 34 'According to the 19number of days which you spied out the land, forty days, for every day you shall bear your lguilt a year, even forty years, and you will know My opposition. 35 '20I, the LORD, have spoken, surely this I will do to all this evil congregation who are gathered together against Me. In this wilderness they shall be destroyed, and there they will die.' " 36 21As for the men whom Moses sent to spy out the land and who returned and made all the congregation grumble against him by bringing out a bad report concerning the land, 37 even 22those men who brought out the very bad report of the land died by a 23plague before the LORD. 38 But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh remained alive out of those men who went to spy out the land.
