Numbers 32:13-23 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
13 "1So the LORD'S anger burned against Israel, and He made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until the entire generation of those who had done evil in the sight of the LORD was destroyed. 14 "Now behold, you have risen up in your fathers' place, a brood of sinful men, to add still more to the burning 2anger of the LORD against Israel. 15 "For if you 3turn away from following Him, He will once more abandon them in the wilderness, and you will destroy all these people." 16 Then they came near to him and said, "We will build here sheepfolds for our livestock and cities for our little ones; 17 4but we ourselves will be armed ready to go before the sons of Israel, until we have brought them to their place, while our little ones live in the fortified cities because of the inhabitants of the land. 18 "5We will not return to our homes until every one of the sons of Israel has possessed his inheritance. 19 "For we will not have an inheritance with them on the other side of the Jordan and beyond, because our inheritance has fallen to us 6on this side of the Jordan toward the east." 20 7So Moses said to them, "If you will do athis, if you will arm yourselves before the LORD for the war, 21 and all of you armed men cross over the Jordan before the LORD until He has driven His enemies out from before Him, 22 8and the land is subdued before the LORD, then afterward you shall return and be free of obligation toward the LORD and toward Israel, and this land shall be yours for a possession before the LORD. 23 "But if you will not do so, behold, you have sinned against the LORD, and be sure 9your sin will find you out.
