Numbers 14


1  And all3605 the congregation5712 lifted up5375 853 their voice,6963 and cried;5414 and the people5971 wept1058 that1931 night.3915

2  And all3605 the children1121 of Israel3478 murmured3885 against5921 Moses4872 and against5921 Aaron:175 and the whole3605 congregation5712 said559 unto413 them, Would God that3863 we had died4191 in the land776 of Egypt!4714 or176 would God3863 we had died4191 in this2088 wilderness!4057

3  And wherefore4100 hath the LORD3068 brought935 us unto413 this2063 land,776 to fall5307 by the sword,2719 that our wives802 and our children2945 should be1961 a prey?957 were it not3808 better2896 for us to return7725 into Egypt?4714

4  And they said559 one376 to413 another,251 Let us make5414 a captain,7218 and let us return7725 into Egypt.4714

5  Then Moses4872 and Aaron175 fell5307 on5921 their faces6440 before6440 all3605 the assembly6951 of the congregation5712 of the children1121 of Israel.3478

6  And Joshua3091 the son1121 of Nun,5126 and Caleb3612 the son1121 of Jephunneh,3312 which were of4480 them that searched8446 853 the land,776 rent7167 their clothes:899

7  And they spoke559 unto413 all3605 the company5712 of the children1121 of Israel,3478 saying,559 The land,776 which834 we passed through5674 to search8446 it, is an exceeding3966 3966 good2896 land.776

8  If518 the LORD3068 delight2654 in us, then he will bring935 us into413 this2063 land,776 and give5414 it us; a land776 which834 floweth2100 with milk2461 and honey.1706

9  Only389 rebel4775 not408 ye against the LORD,3068 neither408 fear3372 ye859 853 the people5971 of the land;776 for3588 they1992 are bread3899 for us: their defense6738 is departed5493 from4480 5921 them, and the LORD3068 is with854 us: fear3372 them not.408

10  But all3605 the congregation5712 bade559 stone7275 them with stones.68 And the glory3519 of the LORD3068 appeared7200 in the tabernacle168 of the congregation4150 before413 all3605 the children1121 of Israel.3478

11  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 How long5704 575 will this2088 people5971 provoke5006 me? and how long5704 575 will it be ere3808 they believe539 me, for all3605 the signs226 which834 I have showed6213 among7130 them?

12  I will smite5221 them with the pestilence,1698 and disinherit3423 them, and will make6213 of thee a greater1419 nation1471 and mightier6099 than4480 they.

13  And Moses4872 said559 unto413 the LORD,3068 Then the Egyptians4714 shall hear8085 it, (for3588 thou broughtest up5927 853 this2088 people5971 in thy might3581 from among4480 7130 them;)

14  And they will tell559 it to413 the inhabitants3427 of this2063 land:776 for they have heard8085 that3588 thou859 LORD3068 art among7130 this2088 people,5971 that834 thou859 LORD3068 art seen7200 face5869 to face,5869 and that thy cloud6051 standeth5975 over5921 them, and that thou859 goest1980 before6440 them, by day time3119 in a pillar5982 of a cloud,6051 and in a pillar5982 of fire784 by night.3915

15  Now if thou shalt kill4191 all 853 this2088 people5971 as one259 man,376 then the nations1471 which834 have heard8085 853 the fame8088 of thee will speak,559 saying,559

16  Because4480 1115 the LORD3068 was not able3201 to bring935 853 this2088 people5971 into413 the land776 which834 he swore7650 unto them therefore he hath slain7819 them in the wilderness.4057

17  And now,6258 I beseech thee,4994 let the power3581 of my Lord136 be great,1431 according as834 thou hast spoken,1696 saying,559

18  The LORD3068 is longsuffering,750 639 and of great7227 mercy,2617 forgiving5375 iniquity5771 and transgression,6588 and by no means clearing5352 5352 3808 the guilty, visiting6485 the iniquity5771 of the fathers1 upon5921 the children1121 unto5921 the third8029 and fourth7256 generation.

19  Pardon,5545 I beseech thee,4994 the iniquity5771 of this2088 people5971 according unto the greatness1433 of thy mercy,2617 and as834 thou hast forgiven5375 this2088 people,5971 from Egypt4480 4714 even until5704 now.2008

20  And the LORD3068 said,559 I have pardoned5545 according to thy word:1697

21  But as truly199 as I589 live,2416 853 all3605 the earth776 shall be filled4390 with the glory3519 of the LORD.3068

22  Because3588 all3605 those men376 which have seen7200 853 my glory,3519 and my miracles,226 which834 I did6213 in Egypt4714 and in the wilderness,4057 and have tempted5254 me now these2088 ten6235 times,6471 and have not3808 hearkened8085 to my voice;6963

23  Surely518 they shall not see7200 853 the land776 which834 I swore7650 unto their fathers,1 neither3808 shall any3605 of them that provoked5006 me see7200 it:

24  But my servant5650 Caleb,3612 because6118 he had1961 another312 spirit7307 with5973 him, and hath followed me fully,4390 310 him will I bring935 into413 the land776 whereinto834 8033 he went;935 and his seed2233 shall possess3423 it.

25  (Now the Amalekites6003 and the Canaanites3669 dwelt3427 in the valley.)6010 Tomorrow4279 turn6437 you, and get5265 you into the wilderness4057 by the way1870 of the Red5488 sea.3220

26  And the LORD3068 spoke1696 unto413 Moses4872 and unto413 Aaron175 saying,559

27  How long5704 4970 shall I bear with this2063 evil7451 congregation,5712 which834 murmur3885 against5921 me? I have heard8085 853 the murmurings8519 of the children1121 of Israel,3478 which834 they1992 murmur3885 against5921 me.

28  Say559 unto413 them, As truly as I589 live,2416 saith5002 the LORD,3068 as834 ye have spoken1696 in mine ears,241 so3651 will I do6213 to you:

29  Your carcasses6297 shall fall5307 in this2088 wilderness;4057 and all3605 that were numbered6485 of you, according to your whole3605 number,4557 from twenty6242 years8141 old4480 1121 and upward,4605 which834 have murmured3885 against5921 me,

30  Doubtless518 ye859 shall not come935 into413 the land,776 concerning which834 I swore5375 853 3027 to make you dwell7931 therein, save3588 518 Caleb3612 the son1121 of Jephunneh,3312 and Joshua3091 the son1121 of Nun.5126

31  But your little ones,2945 which834 ye said559 should be1961 a prey,957 them will I bring in,935 and they shall know3045 853 the land776 which834 ye have despised.3988

32  But as for you,859 your carcasses,6297 they shall fall5307 in this2088 wilderness.4057

33  And your children1121 shall wander1961 7462 in the wilderness4057 forty705 years,8141 and bear5375 853 your whoredoms,2184 until5704 your carcasses6297 be wasted8552 in the wilderness.4057

34  After the number4557 of the days3117 in which834 ye searched8446 853 the land,776 even forty705 days,3117 each day for a year,3117 8141 3117 8141 shall ye bear5375 853 your iniquities,5771 even forty705 years,8141 and ye shall know3045 853 my breach of promise.8569

35  I589 the LORD3068 have said,1696 I will surely518 3808 do6213 it2063 unto all3605 this2063 evil7451 congregation,5712 that are gathered together3259 against5921 me: in this2088 wilderness4057 they shall be consumed,8552 and there8033 they shall die.4191

36  And the men,376 which834 Moses4872 sent7971 to search8446 853 the land,776 who returned,7725 and made 853 all3605 the congregation5712 to murmur3885 against5921 him, by bringing up3318 a slander1681 upon5921 the land,776

37  Even those men376 that did bring up3318 the evil7451 report1681 upon the land,776 died4191 by the plague4046 before6440 the LORD.3068

38  But Joshua3091 the son1121 of Nun,5126 and Caleb3612 the son1121 of Jephunneh,3312 which were of4480 the men376 that went1980 to search8446 853 the land,776 lived2421 still.

39  And Moses4872 told1696 853 these428 sayings1697 unto413 all3605 the children1121 of Israel:3478 and the people5971 mourned56 greatly.3966

40  And they rose up early7925 in the morning,1242 and got them up5927 into413 the top7218 of the mountain,2022 saying,559 Lo,2009 we be here, and will go up5927 unto413 the place4725 which834 the LORD3068 hath promised:559 for3588 we have sinned.2398

41  And Moses4872 said,559 Wherefore4100 now2088 do ye859 transgress5674 853 the commandment6310 of the LORD?3068 but it1931 shall not3808 prosper.6743

42  Go not up,5927 408 for3588 the LORD3068 is not369 among7130 you; that ye be not3808 smitten5062 before6440 your enemies.341

43  For3588 the Amalekites6003 and the Canaanites3669 are there8033 before6440 you, and ye shall fall5307 by the sword:2719 because3588 5921 3651 ye are turned away7725 from4480 310 the LORD,3068 therefore the LORD3068 will not3808 be1961 with5973 you.

44  But they presumed6075 to go up5927 unto413 the hill2022 top:7218 nevertheless the ark727 of the covenant1285 of the LORD,3068 and Moses,4872 departed4185 not3808 out of4480 7130 the camp.4264

45  Then the Amalekites6003 came down,3381 and the Canaanites3669 which dwelt3427 in that1931 hill,2022 and smote5221 them, and discomfited3807 them, even unto5704 Hormah.2767


1 καὶ ἀναλαβοῦσα πᾶσα ἡ συναγωγὴ ἔδωκεν φωνήν καὶ ἔκλαιεν ὁ λαὸς ὅλην τὴν νύκτα ἐκείνην

2 καὶ διεγόγγυζον ἐπὶ Μωυσῆν καὶ Ααρων πάντες οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ καὶ εἶπαν πρὸς αὐτοὺς πᾶσα ἡ συναγωγή ὄφελον ἀπεθάνομεν ἐν γῇ Αἰγύπτῳ ἢ ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ταύτῃ εἰ ἀπεθάνομεν

3 καὶ ἵνα τί κύριος εἰσάγει ἡμᾶς εἰς τὴν γῆν ταύτην πεσεῖν ἐν πολέμῳ αἱ γυναῖκες ἡμῶν καὶ τὰ παιδία ἔσονται εἰς διαρπαγήν νῦν οὖν βέλτιον ἡμῖν ἐστιν ἀποστραφῆναι εἰς Αἴγυπτον

4 καὶ εἶπαν ἕτερος τῷ ἑτέρῳ δῶμεν ἀρχηγὸν καὶ ἀποστρέψωμεν εἰς Αἴγυπτον

5 καὶ ἔπεσεν Μωυσῆς καὶ Ααρων ἐπὶ πρόσωπον ἐναντίον πάσης συναγωγῆς υἱῶν Ισραηλ

6 Ἰησοῦς δὲ ὁ τοῦ Ναυη καὶ Χαλεβ ὁ τοῦ Ιεφοννη τῶν κατασκεψαμένων τὴν γῆν διέρρηξαν τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτῶν

7 καὶ εἶπαν πρὸς πᾶσαν συναγωγὴν υἱῶν Ισραηλ λέγοντες ἡ γῆ ἣν κατεσκεψάμεθα αὐτήν ἀγαθή ἐστιν σφόδρα σφόδρα

8 εἰ αἱρετίζει ἡμᾶς κύριος εἰσάξει ἡμᾶς εἰς τὴν γῆν ταύτην καὶ δώσει αὐτὴν ἡμῖν γῆ ἥτις ἐστὶν ῥέουσα γάλα καὶ μέλι

9 ἀλλὰ ἀπὸ τοῦ κυρίου μὴ ἀποστάται γίνεσθε ὑμεῖς δὲ μὴ φοβηθῆτε τὸν λαὸν τῆς γῆς ὅτι κατάβρωμα ἡμῖν ἐστιν ἀφέστηκεν γὰρ ὁ καιρὸς ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν ὁ δὲ κύριος ἐν ἡμῖν μὴ φοβηθῆτε αὐτούς

10 καὶ εἶπεν πᾶσα ἡ συναγωγὴ καταλιθοβολῆσαι αὐτοὺς ἐν λίθοις καὶ ἡ δόξα κυρίου ὤφθη ἐν νεφέλῃ ἐπὶ τῆς σκηνῆς τοῦ μαρτυρίου ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ

11 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν ἕως τίνος παροξύνει με ὁ λαὸς οὗτος καὶ ἕως τίνος οὐ πιστεύουσίν μοι ἐν πᾶσιν τοῖς σημείοις οἷς ἐποίησα ἐν αὐτοῖς

12 πατάξω αὐτοὺς θανάτῳ καὶ ἀπολῶ αὐτοὺς καὶ ποιήσω σὲ καὶ τὸν οἶκον τοῦ πατρός σου εἰς ἔθνος μέγα καὶ πολὺ μᾶλλον ἢ τοῦτο

13 καὶ εἶπεν Μωυσῆς πρὸς κύριον καὶ ἀκούσεται Αἴγυπτος ὅτι ἀνήγαγες τῇ ἰσχύι σου τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον ἐξ αὐτῶν

14 ἀλλὰ καὶ πάντες οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ταύτης ἀκηκόασιν ὅτι σὺ εἶ κύριος ἐν τῷ λαῷ τούτῳ ὅστις ὀφθαλμοῖς κατ᾽ ὀφθαλμοὺς ὀπτάζῃ κύριε καὶ ἡ νεφέλη σου ἐφέστηκεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτῶν καὶ ἐν στύλῳ νεφέλης σὺ πορεύῃ πρότερος αὐτῶν τὴν ἡμέραν καὶ ἐν στύλῳ πυρὸς τὴν νύκτα

15 καὶ ἐκτρίψεις τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον ὡσεὶ ἄνθρωπον ἕνα καὶ ἐροῦσιν τὰ ἔθνη ὅσοι ἀκηκόασιν τὸ ὄνομά σου λέγοντες

16 παρὰ τὸ μὴ δύνασθαι κύριον εἰσαγαγεῖν τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον εἰς τὴν γῆν ἣν ὤμοσεν αὐτοῖς κατέστρωσεν αὐτοὺς ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ

17 καὶ νῦν ὑψωθήτω ἡ ἰσχύς σου κύριε ὃν τρόπον εἶπας λέγων

18 κύριος μακρόθυμος καὶ πολυέλεος καὶ ἀληθινός ἀφαιρῶν ἀνομίας καὶ ἀδικίας καὶ ἁμαρτίας καὶ καθαρισμῷ οὐ καθαριεῖ τὸν ἔνοχον ἀποδιδοὺς ἁμαρτίας πατέρων ἐπὶ τέκνα ἕως τρίτης καὶ τετάρτης

19 ἄφες τὴν ἁμαρτίαν τῷ λαῷ τούτῳ κατὰ τὸ μέγα ἔλεός σου καθάπερ ἵλεως αὐτοῖς ἐγένου ἀπ᾽ Αἰγύπτου ἕως τοῦ νῦν

20 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν ἵλεως αὐτοῖς εἰμι κατὰ τὸ ῥῆμά σου

21 ἀλλὰ ζῶ ἐγὼ καὶ ζῶν τὸ ὄνομά μου καὶ ἐμπλήσει ἡ δόξα κυρίου πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν

22 ὅτι πάντες οἱ ἄνδρες οἱ ὁρῶντες τὴν δόξαν μου καὶ τὰ σημεῖα ἃ ἐποίησα ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ καὶ ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ταύτῃ καὶ ἐπείρασάν με τοῦτο δέκατον καὶ οὐκ εἰσήκουσάν μου τῆς φωνῆς

23 ἦ μὴν οὐκ ὄψονται τὴν γῆν ἣν ὤμοσα τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτῶν ἀλλ᾽ ἢ τὰ τέκνα αὐτῶν ἅ ἐστιν μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ ὧδε ὅσοι οὐκ οἴδασιν ἀγαθὸν οὐδὲ κακόν πᾶς νεώτερος ἄπειρος τούτοις δώσω τὴν γῆν πάντες δὲ οἱ παροξύναντές με οὐκ ὄψονται αὐτήν

24 ὁ δὲ παῖς μου Χαλεβ ὅτι ἐγενήθη πνεῦμα ἕτερον ἐν αὐτῷ καὶ ἐπηκολούθησέν μοι εἰσάξω αὐτὸν εἰς τὴν γῆν εἰς ἣν εἰσῆλθεν ἐκεῖ καὶ τὸ σπέρμα αὐτοῦ κληρονομήσει αὐτήν

25 ὁ δὲ Αμαληκ καὶ ὁ Χαναναῖος κατοικοῦσιν ἐν τῇ κοιλάδι αὔριον ἐπιστράφητε ὑμεῖς καὶ ἀπάρατε εἰς τὴν ἔρημον ὁδὸν θάλασσαν ἐρυθράν

26 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν καὶ Ααρων λέγων

27 ἕως τίνος τὴν συναγωγὴν τὴν πονηρὰν ταύτην ἃ αὐτοὶ γογγύζουσιν ἐναντίον ἐμοῦ τὴν γόγγυσιν τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ ἣν ἐγόγγυσαν περὶ ὑμῶν ἀκήκοα

28 εἰπὸν αὐτοῖς ζῶ ἐγώ λέγει κύριος ἦ μὴν ὃν τρόπον λελαλήκατε εἰς τὰ ὦτά μου οὕτως ποιήσω ὑμῖν

29 ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ταύτῃ πεσεῖται τὰ κῶλα ὑμῶν καὶ πᾶσα ἡ ἐπισκοπὴ ὑμῶν καὶ οἱ κατηριθμημένοι ὑμῶν ἀπὸ εἰκοσαετοῦς καὶ ἐπάνω ὅσοι ἐγόγγυσαν ἐπ᾽ ἐμοί

30 εἰ ὑμεῖς εἰσελεύσεσθε εἰς τὴν γῆν ἐφ᾽ ἣν ἐξέτεινα τὴν χεῖρά μου κατασκηνῶσαι ὑμᾶς ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς ἀλλ᾽ ἢ Χαλεβ υἱὸς Ιεφοννη καὶ Ἰησοῦς ὁ τοῦ Ναυη

31 καὶ τὰ παιδία ἃ εἴπατε ἐν διαρπαγῇ ἔσεσθαι εἰσάξω αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν γῆν καὶ κληρονομήσουσιν τὴν γῆν ἣν ὑμεῖς ἀπέστητε ἀπ᾽ αὐτῆς

32 καὶ τὰ κῶλα ὑμῶν πεσεῖται ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ταύτῃ

33 οἱ δὲ υἱοὶ ὑμῶν ἔσονται νεμόμενοι ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη καὶ ἀνοίσουσιν τὴν πορνείαν ὑμῶν ἕως ἂν ἀναλωθῇ τὰ κῶλα ὑμῶν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ

34 κατὰ τὸν ἀριθμὸν τῶν ἡμερῶν ὅσας κατεσκέψασθε τὴν γῆν τεσσαράκοντα ἡμέρας ἡμέραν τοῦ ἐνιαυτοῦ λήμψεσθε τὰς ἁμαρτίας ὑμῶν τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη καὶ γνώσεσθε τὸν θυμὸν τῆς ὀργῆς μου

35 ἐγὼ κύριος ἐλάλησα ἦ μὴν οὕτως ποιήσω τῇ συναγωγῇ τῇ πονηρᾷ ταύτῃ τῇ ἐπισυνεσταμένῃ ἐπ᾽ ἐμέ ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ταύτῃ ἐξαναλωθήσονται καὶ ἐκεῖ ἀποθανοῦνται

36 καὶ οἱ ἄνθρωποι οὓς ἀπέστειλεν Μωυσῆς κατασκέψασθαι τὴν γῆν καὶ παραγενηθέντες διεγόγγυσαν κατ᾽ αὐτῆς πρὸς τὴν συναγωγὴν ἐξενέγκαι ῥήματα πονηρὰ περὶ τῆς γῆς

37 καὶ ἀπέθανον οἱ ἄνθρωποι οἱ κατείπαντες κατὰ τῆς γῆς πονηρὰ ἐν τῇ πληγῇ ἔναντι κυρίου

38 καὶ Ἰησοῦς υἱὸς Ναυη καὶ Χαλεβ υἱὸς Ιεφοννη ἔζησαν ἀπὸ τῶν ἀνθρώπων ἐκείνων τῶν πεπορευμένων κατασκέψασθαι τὴν γῆν

39 καὶ ἐλάλησεν Μωυσῆς τὰ ῥήματα ταῦτα πρὸς πάντας υἱοὺς Ισραηλ καὶ ἐπένθησεν ὁ λαὸς σφόδρα

40 καὶ ὀρθρίσαντες τὸ πρωὶ ἀνέβησαν εἰς τὴν κορυφὴν τοῦ ὄρους λέγοντες ἰδοὺ οἵδε ἡμεῖς ἀναβησόμεθα εἰς τὸν τόπον ὃν εἶπεν κύριος ὅτι ἡμάρτομεν

41 καὶ εἶπεν Μωυσῆς ἵνα τί ὑμεῖς παραβαίνετε τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου οὐκ εὔοδα ἔσται ὑμῖν

42 μὴ ἀναβαίνετε οὐ γάρ ἐστιν κύριος μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν καὶ πεσεῖσθε πρὸ προσώπου τῶν ἐχθρῶν ὑμῶν

43 ὅτι ὁ Αμαληκ καὶ ὁ Χαναναῖος ἐκεῖ ἔμπροσθεν ὑμῶν καὶ πεσεῖσθε μαχαίρᾳ οὗ εἵνεκεν ἀπεστράφητε ἀπειθοῦντες κυρίῳ καὶ οὐκ ἔσται κύριος ἐν ὑμῖν

44 καὶ διαβιασάμενοι ἀνέβησαν ἐπὶ τὴν κορυφὴν τοῦ ὄρους ἡ δὲ κιβωτὸς τῆς διαθήκης κυρίου καὶ Μωυσῆς οὐκ ἐκινήθησαν ἐκ τῆς παρεμβολῆς

45 καὶ κατέβη ὁ Αμαληκ καὶ ὁ Χαναναῖος ὁ ἐγκαθήμενος ἐν τῷ ὄρει ἐκείνῳ καὶ ἐτρέψαντο αὐτοὺς καὶ κατέκοψαν αὐτοὺς ἕως Ερμαν καὶ ἀπεστράφησαν εἰς τὴν παρεμβολήν

1 Igitur vociferans omnis turba flevit nocte illa,

2 et murmurati sunt contra Moysen et Aaron cuncti filii Israël, dicentes:

3 Utinam mortui essemus in Ægypto: et in hac vasta solitudine utinam pereamus, et non inducat nos Dominus in terram istam, ne cadamus gladio, et uxores ac liberi nostri ducantur captivi. Nonne melius est reverti in Ægyptum?

4 Dixeruntque alter ad alterum: Constituamus nobis ducem, et revertamur in Ægyptum.

5 Quo audito, Moyses et Aaron ceciderunt proni in terram coram omni multitudine filiorum Israël.

6 At vero Josue filius Nun et Caleb filius Jephone, qui et ipsi lustraverant terram, sciderunt vestimenta sua,

7 et ad omnem multitudinem filiorum Israël locuti sunt: Terra, quam circuivimus, valde bona est.

8 Si propitius fuerit Dominus, inducet nos in eam, et tradet humum lacte et melle manantem.

9 Nolite rebelles esse contra Dominum: neque timeatis populum terræ hujus, quia sicut panem ita eos possumus devorare. Recessit ab eis omne præsidium: Dominus nobiscum est, nolite metuere.

10 Cumque clamaret omnis multitudo, et lapidibus eos vellet opprimere, apparuit gloria Domini super tectum fœderis cunctis filiis Israël.

11 Et dixit Dominus ad Moysen: Usquequo detrahet mihi populus iste? quousque non credent mihi, in omnibus signis quæ feci coram eis?

12 Feriam igitur eos pestilentia, atque consumam: te autem faciam principem super gentem magnam, et fortiorem quam hæc est.

13 Et ait Moyses ad Dominum: Ut audiant Ægyptii, de quorum medio eduxisti populum istum,

14 et habitatores terræ hujus, qui audierunt quod tu, Domine, in populo isto sis, et facie videaris ad faciem, et nubes tua protegat illos, et in columna nubis præcedas eos per diem, et in columna ignis per noctem:

15 quod occideris tantam multitudinem quasi unum hominem, et dicant:

16 Non poterat introducere populum in terram pro qua juraverat: idcirco occidit eos in solitudine?

17 Magnificetur ergo fortitudo Domini sicut jurasti, dicens:

18 Dominus patiens et multæ misericordiæ, auferens iniquitatem et scelera, nullumque innoxium derelinquens, qui visitas peccata patrum in filios in tertiam et quartam generationem.

19 Dimitte, obsecro, peccatum populi hujus secundum magnitudinem misericordiæ tuæ, sicut propitius fuisti egredientibus de Ægypto usque ad locum istum.

20 Dixitque Dominus: Dimisi juxta verbum tuum.

21 Vivo ego: et implebitur gloria Domini universa terra.

22 Attamen omnes homines qui viderunt majestatem meam, et signa quæ feci in Ægypto et in solitudine, et tentaverunt me jam per decem vices, nec obedierunt voci meæ,

23 non videbunt terram pro qua juravi patribus eorum, nec quisquam ex illis qui detraxit mihi, intuebitur eam.

24 Servum meum Caleb, qui plenus alio spiritu secutus est me, inducam in terram hanc, quam circuivit; et semen ejus possidebit eam.

25 Quoniam Amalecites et Chananæus habitant in vallibus. Cras movete castra, et revertimini in solitudinem per viam maris Rubri.

26 Locutusque est Dominus ad Moysen et Aaron, dicens:

27 Usquequo multitudo hæc pessima murmurat contra me? querelas filiorum Israël audivi.

28 Dic ergo eis: Vivo ego, ait Dominus: sicut locuti estis audiente me, sic faciam vobis.

29 In solitudine hac jacebunt cadavera vestra. Omnes qui numerati estis a viginti annis et supra, et murmurastis contra me,

30 non intrabitis terram, super quam levavi manum meam ut habitare vos facerem, præter Caleb filium Jephone, et Josue filium Nun.

31 Parvulos autem vestros, de quibus dixistis quod prædæ hostibus forent, introducam, ut videant terram, quæ vobis displicuit.

32 Vestra cadavera jacebunt in solitudine.

33 Filii vestri erunt vagi in deserto annis quadraginta, et portabunt fornicationem vestram, donec consumantur cadavera patrum in deserto,

34 juxta numerum quadraginta dierum, quibus considerastis terram: annus pro die imputabitur. Et quadraginta annis recipietis iniquitates vestras, et scietis ultionem meam:

35 quoniam sicut locutus sum, ita faciam omni multitudini huic pessimæ, quæ consurrexit adversum me: in solitudine hac deficiet, et morietur.

36 Igitur omnes viri, quos miserat Moyses ad contemplandam terram, et qui reversi murmurare fecerant contra eum omnem multitudinem, detrahentes terræ quod esset mala,

37 mortui sunt atque percussi in conspectu Domini.

38 Josue autem filius Nun, et Caleb filius Jephone, vixerunt ex omnibus qui perrexerant ad considerandam terram.

39 Locutusque est Moyses universa verba hæc ad omnes filios Israël, et luxit populus nimis.

40 Et ecce mane primo surgentes ascenderunt verticem montis, atque dixerunt: Parati sumus ascendere ad locum, de quo Dominus locutus est: quia peccavimus.

41 Quibus Moyses: Cur, inquit, transgredimini verbum Domini, quod vobis non cedet in prosperum?

42 nolite ascendere: non enim est Dominus vobiscum: ne corruatis coram inimicis vestris.

43 Amalecites et Chananæus ante vos sunt, quorum gladio corruetis, eo quod nolueritis acquiescere Domino: nec erit Dominus vobiscum.

44 At illi contenebrati ascenderunt in verticem montis. Arca autem testamenti Domini et Moyses non recesserunt de castris.

45 Descenditque Amalecites et Chananæus, qui habitabat in monte: et percutiens eos atque concidens, persecutus est eos usque Horma.
