Then the LORD said, "I have pardoned, according to your word;
but truly, as I live, and as all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD,
none of the men who have seen my glory and my signs which I wrought in Egypt and in the wilderness, and yet have put me to the proof these ten times and have not hearkened to my voice,
shall see the land which I swore to give to their fathers; and none of those who despised me shall see it.
But my servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit and has followed me fully, I will bring into the land into which he went, and his descendants shall possess it.
Now, since the Amal'ekites and the Canaanites dwell in the valleys, turn tomorrow and set out for the wilderness by the way to the Red Sea."
And the LORD said to Moses and to Aaron,
"How long shall this wicked congregation murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the people of Israel, which they murmur against me.
Say to them, 'As I live,' says the LORD, 'what you have said in my hearing I will do to you:
your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness; and of all your number, numbered from twenty years old and upward, who have murmured against me,
not one shall come into the land where I swore that I would make you dwell, except Caleb the son of Jephun'neh and Joshua the son of Nun.
