`And Thou hast put to death this people as one man, and the nations who have heard Thy fame have spoken, saying,
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.
`And now, let, I pray Thee, the power of my Lord be great, as Thou hast spoken, saying:
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; --
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.'
And Jehovah saith, `I have forgiven, according to thy word;
and yet, I live -- and it is filled -- the whole earth -- [with] the honour of Jehovah;
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 --
they see not the land which I have sworn to their fathers, yea, none of those despising Me see it;
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.
`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.'
