and why discourage ye the heart of the sons of Israel from passing over unto the land which Jehovah hath given to them?
`Thus did your fathers in my sending them from Kadesh-Barnea to see the land;
and they go up unto the valley of Eshcol, and see the land, and discourage the heart of the sons of Israel so as not to go in unto the land which Jehovah hath given to them;
and the anger of Jehovah burneth in that day, and He sweareth, saying,
