Numbers 14
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And all of the assembly was in an uproar and lifted up their voice with weeping and the people wept that night. 2And all of the children of Israel complained against Moshe and against Ahron, and the whole assembly said to them: “Oh, that we had died in the land of Egypt or in this wilderness! Oh that we were dead! 3Why does LORD JEHOVAH bring us into this land that we shall fall by a sword, and our women and our little ones shall be prey? It was better for us when we were dwelling in Egypt!” 4And they said, each man to his brother, “Come, we shall make a Leader for us and we shall return to Egypt!”

5And Moshe and Ahron fell on their faces before all the crowds of the assembly of the children of Israel. 6And Yeshua, son of Nun, and Kalab, son of Yuphana, of the spies of the land, tore their garments. 7And they said to all of the assembly of the children Israel: “The land in which we went through to explore is very good land. 8Truly, LORD JEHOVAH is pleased with us and brings us to this land and he gives to us this land that flows milk and honey. 9Only do not rebel against LORD JEHOVAH and do not be afraid of the people of the land, because they are our bread, for their strength itself has passed away from them and LORD JEHOVAH is with us; you shall not be afraid of them.” 10And all of the assembly said to stone them with stones, and the glory of LORD JEHOVAH was revealed in the cloud in the Time Tabernacle to the eyes of all the children of Israel.

11And LORD JEHOVAH said to Moshe: “How long do this people anger me, and how long do they not trust me in all the signs that I have done among them? 12I shall strike them with a plague and I shall destroy them and I shall make you a people greater and mightier than they.”

13And Moshe said to LORD JEHOVAH: “The Egyptians will hear that you brought up this people by your power from among them. 14And the inhabitants of this land who heard that you are LORD JEHOVAH within this people will say that you LORD JEHOVAH are seen, eye to eye, and your cloud stands above them, and in a pillar of cloud you have gone out before them by day and in a pillar of fire by night. 15And whenever you have killed this people as one man, the nations that have heard your name will say: 16‘Because LORD JEHOVAH was not able to bring in the people to the land that He swore to them, because of this, He slaughtered them in the wilderness.’ 17And now let your power be great LORD JEHOVAH, as you have spoken and you have said. 18LORD JEHOVAH, your Spirit is patient and your kindness abundant, and you forgive evil and sin and you do not justify to justify; you order the lovedebts of the fathers on the children and upon the children of the children, upon three and upon four generations. 19Forgive now the evil of this people according to the multitude of your favors, and as you have forgiven them from Egypt and unto now.”

20And LORD JEHOVAH said to Moshe: “I have forgiven them, according to your word. 21However, I live, and all the earth is filled with the glory of LORD JEHOVAH. 22And all the men who have seen my glory and the signs that I have done in Egypt and in the wilderness and have tested me, behold, ten times, and they have not listened to my voice. 23They shall not see the land about which I have sworn to their fathers: ‘No one provoking me shall see it.’ 24And my Servant Kalab, for the sake of my Spirit Who has been with Him, and he has been fully after me, I shall bring him into the land that he entered there and his seed shall inherit it. 25And the Amalekites and the Canaanites dwell in the mountains; tomorrow turn and move you to the wilderness to the way of the Sea of Reeds.”

26And LORD JEHOVAH spoke with Moshe and with Ahron and said to them: 27“How long is this evil assembly complaining before me? I have heard the complaining that the children of Israel were complaining before me. 28Say to them: ‘I am living, says LORD JEHOVAH, but as you have said before me, so shall I do to you. 29In this wilderness your corpses will fall and all your number and all your numbering from a son of twenty years and above, because you were complaining against me. 30You shall not enter the land for which I raised my hands for you to dwell in, except only Kalab son of Yuphanah and Yeshua son of Nun. 31And your little ones which you have said will be for prey, and your sons who have not known good and evil, today those shall enter the land and I shall bring them and they shall know the land which you rejected. 32And your corpses, even yours, shall fall in this wilderness. 33And your sons shall be Shepherds in this wilderness forty years and they shall bear your whoredom until your corpses are gone in this wilderness. 34By the number of days that you spied out the land forty days, a day to a year, you shall receive your evil forty years, and you shall know that because you complained before me. 35I LORD JEHOVAH, I have said that thus I shall do to all of this evil assembly that are assembled before me in this wilderness; they shall be consumed and there they shall die.”

36And men whom Moshe sent to spy the land returned and they made all of the assembly complain against him because they sent out an evil report about the land; 37And the men that put out the evil report about the land died in a sudden plague before LORD JEHOVAH. 38And he saved Yeshua son of Nun and Kalab son of Yuphana from those men who went to spy the land.

39And Moshe said these words to all the children of Israel and the people sat in great mourning.

40And they arose early at dawn and came up to the top of the mountain, and they said, “Behold, we are going up to the country of which LORD JEHOVAH told us, because we have sinned.” 41And Moshe said to them, “Why do you pass over the word of the mouth of LORD JEHOVAH?” Because of this, do not go up to the top. 42Do not go up, because LORD JEHOVAH is not with you, so that you will not be broken before your enemies. 43Because the Canaanites and the Amalekites are there before you and you shall fall with the sword, for you have turned back from after LORD JEHOVAH and LORD JEHOVAH shall not be with you.” 44And they began to go up to the top of the mountain and they did not withdraw the Ark of the Covenant of LORD JEHOVAH and Moshe from within the camp. 45And the Amalekites and the Canaanites went down who lived in that mountain and attacked them with the sword and they chased them unto Kharma.
