View In My Bible
14 And they will tell the inhabitants of this land about it. They have already heard1 that you, O LORD, are with these people2 and that you, O LORD, have been seen face to face,3 that your cloud stays over them,4 and that you go before them in a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night.5 15 If you put these people to death all at one time, the nations who have heard this report about you will say, 16 'The LORD was not able to bring these people into the land he promised them on oath;6 so he slaughtered them in the desert.'7 17 "Now may the Lord's strength be displayed, just as you have declared: 18 'The LORD is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion.8 Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation.'9 19 In accordance with your great love, forgive10 the sin of these people,11 just as you have pardoned them from the time they left Egypt until now."12 20 The LORD replied, "I have forgiven them,13 as you asked. 21 Nevertheless, as surely as I live14 and as surely as the glory of the LORD15 fills the whole earth,16 22 not one of the men who saw my glory and the miraculous signs17 I performed in Egypt and in the desert but who disobeyed me and tested me ten times18-- 23 not one of them will ever see the land I promised on oath19 to their forefathers. No one who has treated me with contempt20 will ever see it.21 24 But because my servant Caleb22 has a different spirit and follows me wholeheartedly,23 I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it.24
