And the space in which we came from Kadeshbarnea
The space of time; or, "the days" F2; the number of them:
until we were come over the brook Zered, was thirty and eight years;
that is, from the time that the spies were sent and searched the land, and brought a report of it; for they were sent from Kadeshbarnea, ( Numbers 32:8 ) unto the passage of the Israelites over Zered, were thirty eight years; so long they had been travelling in the wilderness, after they were come to the borders of the land:
until all the generation of the men of war were wasted out from among
all that were twenty years old and upwards, and fit to go out to war upon occasion, when the people were first numbered after they came out of Egypt; all that generation was now consumed within the above space of time, excepting two, Caleb and Joshua;
