THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Numbers (Author Moses)

14:26And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

14:27How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me.

14:28Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:

14:29Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me,

14:30Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.

14:31But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised.

14:32But as for you, your carcases, they shall fall in this wilderness.

14:33And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness.

14:34After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise.

14:35I the LORD have said, I will surely do it unto all this evil congregation, that are gathered together against me: in this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.

14:36And the men, which Moses sent to search the land, who returned, and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up a slander upon the land,

14:37Even those men that did bring up the evil report upon the land, died by the plague before the LORD.

14:38But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of the men that went to search the land, lived still.

14:39And Moses told these sayings unto all the children of Israel: and the people mourned greatly.

14:40And they rose up early in the morning, and gat them up into the top of the mountain, saying, Lo, we be here, and will go up unto the place which the LORD hath promised: for we have sinned.

14:41And Moses said, Wherefore now do ye transgress the commandment of the LORD? but it shall not prosper.

14:42Go not up, for the LORD is not among you; that ye be not smitten before your enemies.

14:43For the Amalekites and the Canaanites are there before you, and ye shall fall by the sword: because ye are turned away from the LORD, therefore the LORD will not be with you.

14:44But they presumed to go up unto the hill top: nevertheless the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and Moses, departed not out of the camp.

14:45Then the Amalekites came down, and the Canaanites which dwelt in that hill, and smote them, and discomfited them, even unto Hormah.
