The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
26 God spoke to Moses and Aaron: 26 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron:
27 "How long is this going to go on, all this grumbling against me by this evil-infested community? I've had my fill of complaints from these grumbling Israelites. 27 "How long will this wicked community grumble against me? I have heard the complaints of these grumbling Israelites.
28 Tell them, As I live - God's decree - here's what I'm going to do: 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 Your corpses are going to litter the wilderness - every one of you twenty years and older who was counted in the census, this whole generation of grumblers and grousers. 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 Not one of you will enter the land and make your home there, the firmly and solemnly promised land, except for 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 "Your children, the very ones that you said would be taken for plunder, I'll bring in to enjoy the land you rejected 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 while your corpses will be rotting in the wilderness. 32 But you--your bodies will fall in this desert.
33 These children of yours will live as shepherds in the wilderness for forty years, living with the fallout of your whoring unfaithfulness until the last of your generation lies a corpse 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 You scouted out the land for forty days; your punishment will be a year for each day, a forty-year sentence to serve for your sins - a long schooling in my displeasure. 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.'
