Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And all the company lifteth up and give forth their voice, and the people weep during that night; 1 That night all the people of the community raised their voices and wept aloud.
2 and all the sons of Israel murmur against Moses, and against Aaron, and all the company say unto them, `O that we had died in the land of Egypt, or in this wilderness, O that we had died! 2 All the Israelites grumbled against Moses and Aaron, and the whole assembly said to them, "If only we had died in Egypt! Or in this desert!
3 and why is Jehovah bringing us in unto this land to fall by the sword? our wives and our infants are become a prey; is it not good for us to turn back to Egypt?' 3 Why is the LORD bringing us to this land only to let us fall by the sword? Our wives and children will be taken as plunder. Wouldn't it be better for us to go back to Egypt?"
4 And they say one unto another, `Let us appoint a head, and turn back to Egypt.' 4 And they said to each other, "We should choose a leader and go back to Egypt."
5 And Moses falleth -- Aaron also -- on their faces, before all the assembly of the company of the sons of Israel. 5 Then Moses and Aaron fell facedown in front of the whole Israelite assembly gathered there.
6 And Joshua son of Nun, and Caleb son of Jephunneh, of those spying the land, have rent their garments, 6 Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had explored the land, tore their clothes
7 and they speak unto all the company of the sons of Israel, saying, `The land into which we have passed over to spy it, [is] a very very good land; 7 and said to the entire Israelite assembly, "The land we passed through and explored is exceedingly good.
8 if Jehovah hath delighted in us, then He hath brought us in unto this land, and hath given it to us, a land which is flowing with milk and honey; 8 If the LORD is pleased with us, he will lead us into that land, a land flowing with milk and honey, and will give it to us.
9 only, against Jehovah rebel not ye: and ye, fear not ye the people of the land, for our bread they [are]; their defence hath turned aside from off them, and Jehovah [is] with us; fear them not.' 9 Only do not rebel against the LORD. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because we will swallow them up. Their protection is gone, but the LORD is with us. Do not be afraid of them."
10 And all the company say to stone them with stones, and the honour of Jehovah hath appeared in the tent of meeting unto all the sons of Israel. 10 But the whole assembly talked about stoning them. Then the glory of the LORD appeared at the Tent of Meeting to all the Israelites.
11 And Jehovah saith unto Moses, `Until when doth this people despise Me? and until when do they not believe in Me, for all the signs which I have done in its midst? 11 The LORD said to Moses, "How long will these people treat me with contempt? How long will they refuse to believe in me, in spite of all the miraculous signs I have performed among them?
12 I smite it with pestilence, and dispossess it, and make thee become a nation greater and mightier than it.' 12 I will strike them down with a plague and destroy them, but I will make you into a nation greater and stronger than they."
13 And Moses saith unto Jehovah, `Then have the Egyptians heard! for Thou hast brought up with Thy power this people out of their midst, 13 Moses said to the LORD, "Then the Egyptians will hear about it! By your power you brought these people up from among them.
14 and they have said [it] unto the inhabitant of this land, they have heard that Thou, Jehovah, [art] in the midst of this people, that eye to eye Thou art seen -- O Jehovah, and Thy cloud is standing over them, -- and in a pillar of cloud Thou art going before them by day, and in a pillar of fire by night. 14 And they will tell the inhabitants of this land about it. They have already heard that you, O LORD, are with these people and that you, O LORD, have been seen face to face, that your cloud stays over them, and that you go before them in a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night.
15 `And Thou hast put to death this people as one man, and the nations who have heard Thy fame have spoken, saying, 15 If you put these people to death all at one time, the nations who have heard this report about you will say,
16 From Jehovah's want of ability to bring in this people unto the land which He hath sworn to them -- He doth slaughter them in the wilderness. 16 'The LORD was not able to bring these people into the land he promised them on oath; so he slaughtered them in the desert.'
17 `And now, let, I pray Thee, the power of my Lord be great, as Thou hast spoken, saying: 17 "Now may the Lord's strength be displayed, just as you have declared:
18 Jehovah [is] slow to anger, and of great kindness; bearing away iniquity and transgression, and not entirely acquitting, charging iniquity of fathers on sons, on a third [generation], and on a fourth; -- 18 'The LORD is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation.'
19 forgive, I pray Thee, the iniquity of this people, according to the greatness of Thy kindness, and as Thou hast borne with this people from Egypt, even until now.' 19 In accordance with your great love, forgive the sin of these people, just as you have pardoned them from the time they left Egypt until now."
20 And Jehovah saith, `I have forgiven, according to thy word; 20 The LORD replied, "I have forgiven them, as you asked.
21 and yet, I live -- and it is filled -- the whole earth -- [with] the honour of Jehovah; 21 Nevertheless, as surely as I live and as surely as the glory of the LORD fills the whole earth,
22 for all the men who are seeing My honour, and My signs, which I have done in Egypt, and in the wilderness, and try Me these ten times, and have not hearkened to My voice -- 22 not one of the men who saw my glory and the miraculous signs I performed in Egypt and in the desert but who disobeyed me and tested me ten times--
23 they see not the land which I have sworn to their fathers, yea, none of those despising Me see it; 23 not one of them will ever see the land I promised on oath to their forefathers. No one who has treated me with contempt will ever see it.
24 and My servant Caleb, because there hath been another spirit with him, and he is fully after Me -- I have brought him in unto the land whither he hath entered, and his seed doth possess it. 24 But because my servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows me wholeheartedly, I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it.
25 `And the Amalekite and the Canaanite are dwelling in the valley; to-morrow turn ye and journey for yourselves into the wilderness -- the way of the Red Sea.' 25 Since the Amalekites and Canaanites are living in the valleys, turn back tomorrow and set out toward the desert along the route to the Red Sea."
26 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, and unto Aaron, saying, 26 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron:
27 `Until when hath this evil company that which they are murmuring against Me? the murmurings of the sons of Israel, which they are murmuring against Me, I have heard; 27 "How long will this wicked community grumble against me? I have heard the complaints of these grumbling Israelites.
28 say unto them, I live -- an affirmation of Jehovah -- if, as ye have spoken in Mine ears -- so I do not to you; 28 So tell them, 'As surely as I live, declares the LORD, I will do to you the very things I heard you say:
29 in this wilderness do your carcases fall, even all your numbered ones, to all your number, from a son of twenty years and upward, who have murmured against Me; 29 In this desert your bodies will fall--every one of you twenty years old or more who was counted in the census and who has grumbled against me.
30 ye -- ye come not in unto the land which I have lifted up My hand to cause you to tabernacle in it, except Caleb son of Jephunneh, and Joshua son of Nun. 30 Not one of you will enter the land I swore with uplifted hand to make your home, except Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun.
31 `As to your infants -- of whom ye have said, A spoil they are become -- I have even brought them in, and they have known the land which ye have kicked against; 31 As for your children that you said would be taken as plunder, I will bring them in to enjoy the land you have rejected.
32 as to you -- your carcases do fall in this wilderness, 32 But you--your bodies will fall in this desert.
33 and your sons are evil in the wilderness forty years, and have borne your whoredoms till your carcases are consumed in the wilderness; 33 Your children will be shepherds here for forty years, suffering for your unfaithfulness, until the last of your bodies lies in the desert.
34 by the number of the days [in] which ye spied the land, forty days, -- a day for a year, a day for a year -- ye do bear your iniquities, forty years, and ye have known my breaking off; 34 For forty years--one year for each of the forty days you explored the land--you will suffer for your sins and know what it is like to have me against you.'
35 I [am] Jehovah, I have spoken; if I do not this to all this evil company who are meeting against me; -- in this wilderness they are consumed, and there they die.' 35 I, the LORD, have spoken, and I will surely do these things to this whole wicked community, which has banded together against me. They will meet their end in this desert; here they will die."
36 And the men whom Moses hath sent to spy the land, and they turn back and cause all the company to murmur against him, by bringing out an evil account concerning the land, 36 So the men Moses had sent to explore the land, who returned and made the whole community grumble against him by spreading a bad report about it--
37 even the men bringing out an evil account of the land die by the plague before Jehovah; 37 these men responsible for spreading the bad report about the land were struck down and died of a plague before the LORD.
38 and Joshua son of Nun, and Caleb son of Jephunneh, have lived of those men who go to spy out the land. 38 Of the men who went to explore the land, only Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh survived.
39 And Moses speaketh these words unto all the sons of Israel, and the people mourn exceedingly, 39 When Moses reported this to all the Israelites, they mourned bitterly.
40 and they rise early in the morning, and go up unto the top of the mountain, saying, `Here we [are], and we have come up unto the place which Jehovah hath spoken of, for we have sinned.' 40 Early the next morning they went up toward the high hill country. "We have sinned," they said. "We will go up to the place the LORD promised."
41 And Moses saith, `Why [is] this? -- ye are transgressing the command of Jehovah, and it doth not prosper; 41 But Moses said, "Why are you disobeying the LORD's command? This will not succeed!
42 go not up, for Jehovah is not in your midst, and ye are not smitten before your enemies; 42 Do not go up, because the LORD is not with you. You will be defeated by your enemies,
43 for the Amalekite and the Canaanite [are] there before you, and ye have fallen by the sword, because that ye have turned back from after Jehovah, and Jehovah is not with you.' 43 for the Amalekites and Canaanites will face you there. Because you have turned away from the LORD, he will not be with you and you will fall by the sword."
44 And they presume to go up unto the top of the mountain, and the ark of the covenant of Jehovah and Moses have not departed out of the midst of the camp. 44 Nevertheless, in their presumption they went up toward the high hill country, though neither Moses nor the ark of the LORD's covenant moved from the camp.
45 And the Amalekite and the Canaanite who are dwelling in that mountain come down and smite them, and beat them down -- unto Hormah. 45 Then the Amalekites and Canaanites who lived in that hill country came down and attacked them and beat them down all the way to Hormah.
