1 H1697 These be the words H4872 which Moses H1696 spake [H8765] H3478 unto all Israel H5676 on this side H3383 Jordan H4057 in the wilderness H6160 , in the plain H4136 over against H5489 the Red H6290 sea, between Paran H8603 , and Tophel H3837 , and Laban H2698 , and Hazeroth H1774 , and Dizahab.
2 H259 ( There are eleven H6240 H3117 days H2722 ' journey from Horeb H1870 by the way H2022 of mount H8165 Seir H6947 unto Kadeshbarnea.)
3 H705 And it came to pass in the fortieth H8141 year H6249 , in the eleventh H6240 H2320 month H259 , on the first H2320 day of the month H4872 , that Moses H1696 spake [H8765] H1121 unto the children H3478 of Israel H3068 , according unto all that the LORD H6680 had given him in commandment [H8765] unto them;
4 H310 After H5221 he had slain [H8687] H5511 Sihon H4428 the king H567 of the Amorites H3427 , which dwelt [H8802] H2809 in Heshbon H5747 , and Og H4428 the king H1316 of Bashan H3427 , which dwelt [H8802] H6252 at Astaroth H154 in Edrei:
5 H5676 On this side H3383 Jordan H776 , in the land H4124 of Moab H2974 , began [H8689] H4872 Moses H874 to declare [H8763] H8451 this law H559 , saying [H8800] ,
6 H3068 The LORD H430 our God H1696 spake [H8765] H2722 unto us in Horeb H559 , saying [H8800] H3427 , Ye have dwelt [H8800] H7227 long enough H2022 in this mount:
7 H6437 Turn [H8798] H5265 you, and take your journey [H8798] H935 , and go [H8798] H2022 to the mount H567 of the Amorites H7934 , and unto all the places nigh H6160 thereunto, in the plain H2022 , in the hills H8219 , and in the vale H5045 , and in the south H3220 , and by the sea H2348 side H776 , to the land H3669 of the Canaanites H3844 , and unto Lebanon H1419 , unto the great H5104 river H5104 , the river H6578 Euphrates.
8 H7200 Behold [H8798] H5414 , I have set [H8804] H776 the land H6440 before H935 you: go [H8798] H3423 in and possess [H8798] H776 the land H3068 which the LORD H7650 sware [H8738] H1 unto your fathers H85 , Abraham H3327 , Isaac H3290 , and Jacob H5414 , to give [H8800] H2233 unto them and to their seed H310 after them.
9 H559 And I spake [H8799] H6256 unto you at that time H559 , saying [H8800] H3201 , I am not able [H8799] H5375 to bear [H8800] H905 you myself alone:
10 H3068 The LORD H430 your God H7235 hath multiplied [H8689] H3117 you, and, behold, ye are this day H3556 as the stars H8064 of heaven H7230 for multitude.
11 H3068 (The LORD H430 God H1 of your fathers H505 make you a thousand H6471 times H3254 so many more as [H8686] H1288 ye are, and bless [H8762] H1696 you, as he hath promised [H8765] you!)
12 H349 How H5375 can I myself alone bear [H8799] H2960 your cumbrance H4853 , and your burden H7379 , and your strife?
13 H3051 Take [H8798] H2450 you wise H582 men H995 , and understanding [H8737] H3045 , and known [H8803] H7626 among your tribes H7760 , and I will make [H8799] H7218 them rulers over you.
14 H6030 And ye answered [H8799] H559 me, and said [H8799] H1697 , The thing H1696 which thou hast spoken [H8765] H2896 is good H6213 for us to do [H8800] .
15 H3947 So I took [H8799] H7218 the chief H7626 of your tribes H2450 , wise H582 men H3045 , and known [H8803] H5414 , and made [H8799] H7218 them heads H8269 over you, captains H505 over thousands H8269 , and captains H3967 over hundreds H8269 , and captains H2572 over fifties H8269 , and captains H6235 over tens H7860 , and officers [H8802] H7626 among your tribes.
16 H6680 And I charged [H8762] H8199 your judges [H8802] H6256 at that time H559 , saying [H8800] H8085 , Hear [H8800] H251 the causes between your brethren H8199 , and judge [H8804] H6664 righteously H376 between every man H251 and his brother H1616 , and the stranger that is with him.
17 H5234 Ye shall not respect [H8686] H6440 persons H4941 in judgment H8085 ; but ye shall hear [H8799] H6996 the small H1419 as well as the great H1481 ; ye shall not be afraid [H8799] H6440 of the face H376 of man H4941 ; for the judgment H430 is God's H1697 : and the cause H7185 that is too hard [H8799] H7126 for you, bring [H8686] H8085 it unto me, and I will hear [H8804] it.
18 H6680 And I commanded [H8762] H6256 you at that time H1697 all the things H6213 which ye should do [H8799] .
19 H5265 And when we departed [H8799] H2722 from Horeb H3212 , we went through [H8799] H1419 all that great H3372 and terrible [H8737] H4057 wilderness H7200 , which ye saw [H8804] H1870 by the way H2022 of the mountain H567 of the Amorites H3068 , as the LORD H430 our God H6680 commanded [H8765] H935 us; and we came [H8799] H6947 to Kadeshbarnea.
20 H559 And I said [H8799] H935 unto you, Ye are come [H8804] H2022 unto the mountain H567 of the Amorites H3068 , which the LORD H430 our God H5414 doth give [H8802] unto us.
21 H7200 Behold [H8798] H3068 , the LORD H430 thy God H5414 hath set [H8804] H776 the land H6440 before H5927 thee: go up [H8798] H3423 and possess [H8798] H3068 it, as the LORD H430 God H1 of thy fathers H1696 hath said [H8765] H3372 unto thee; fear [H8799] H2865 not, neither be discouraged [H8735] .
22 H7126 And ye came near [H8799] H559 unto me every one of you, and said [H8799] H7971 , We will send [H8799] H582 men H6440 before H2658 us, and they shall search us out [H8799] H776 the land H7725 , and bring H1697 us word H7725 again [H8686] H1870 by what way H5927 we must go up [H8799] H5892 , and into what cities H935 we shall come [H8799] .
23 H1697 And the saying H3190 pleased me well [H8799] H5869 H3947 : and I took [H8799] H8147 twelve H6240 H582 men H259 of you, one H376 of a tribe H7626 :
24 H6437 And they turned [H8799] H5927 and went up [H8799] H2022 into the mountain H935 , and came [H8799] H5158 unto the valley H812 of Eshcol H7270 , and searched it out [H8762] .
25 H3947 And they took [H8799] H6529 of the fruit H776 of the land H3027 in their hands H3381 , and brought it down [H8686] H7725 unto us, and brought H1697 us word H7725 again [H8686] H559 , and said [H8799] H2896 , It is a good H776 land H3068 which the LORD H430 our God H5414 doth give [H8802] us.
26 H14 Notwithstanding ye would [H8804] H5927 not go up [H8800] H4784 , but rebelled [H8686] H6310 against the commandment H3068 of the LORD H430 your God:
27 H7279 And ye murmured [H8735] H168 in your tents H559 , and said [H8799] H3068 , Because the LORD H8135 hated H3318 us, he hath brought us forth [H8689] H776 out of the land H4714 of Egypt H5414 , to deliver [H8800] H3027 us into the hand H567 of the Amorites H8045 , to destroy [H8687] us.
28 H5927 Whither shall we go up [H8802] H251 ? our brethren H4549 have discouraged [H8689] H3824 our heart H559 , saying [H8800] H5971 , The people H1419 is greater H7311 and taller [H8802] H5892 than we; the cities H1419 are great H1219 and walled up [H8803] H8064 to heaven H7200 ; and moreover we have seen [H8804] H1121 the sons H6062 of the Anakims there.
29 H559 Then I said [H8799] H6206 unto you, Dread [H8799] H3372 not, neither be afraid [H8799] of them.
30 H3068 The LORD H430 your God H1980 which goeth [H8802] H6440 before H3898 you, he shall fight [H8735] H6213 for you, according to all that he did [H8804] H4714 for you in Egypt H5869 before your eyes;
31 H4057 And in the wilderness H7200 , where thou hast seen [H8804] H3068 how that the LORD H430 thy God H5375 bare [H8804] H376 thee, as a man H5375 doth bear [H8799] H1121 his son H1870 , in all the way H1980 that ye went [H8804] H935 , until ye came [H8800] H4725 into this place.
33 H1980 Who went [H8802] H1870 in the way H6440 before H8446 you, to search you out [H8800] H4725 a place H2583 to pitch your tents [H8800] H784 in, in fire H3915 by night H7200 , to shew [H8687] H1870 you by what way H3212 ye should go [H8799] H6051 , and in a cloud H3119 by day.
34 H3068 And the LORD H8085 heard [H8799] H6963 the voice H1697 of your words H7107 , and was wroth [H8799] H7650 , and sware [H8735] H559 , saying [H8800] ,
35 H376 Surely there shall not one H582 of these men H7451 of this evil H1755 generation H7200 see [H8799] H2896 that good H776 land H7650 , which I sware [H8738] H5414 to give [H8800] H1 unto your fathers,
36 H2108 Save H3612 Caleb H1121 the son H3312 of Jephunneh H7200 ; he shall see [H8799] H5414 it, and to him will I give [H8799] H776 the land H834 that H1869 he hath trodden upon [H8804] H1121 , and to his children H4390 , because he hath wholly [H8765] H310 followed H3068 the LORD.
37 H3068 Also the LORD H599 was angry [H8694] H1558 with me for your sakes H559 , saying [H8800] H935 , Thou also shalt not go [H8799] H8033 in thither.
38 H3091 But Joshua H1121 the son H5126 of Nun H5975 , which standeth [H8802] H6440 before H935 thee, he shall go in [H8799] H2388 thither: encourage [H8761] H3478 him: for he shall cause Israel H5157 to inherit [H8686] it.
39 H2945 Moreover your little ones H559 , which ye said [H8804] H957 should be a prey H1121 , and your children H3117 , which in that day H3045 had no knowledge [H8804] H2896 between good H7451 and evil H935 , they shall go in [H8799] H5414 thither, and unto them will I give [H8799] H3423 it, and they shall possess [H8799] it.
40 H6437 But as for you, turn [H8798] H5265 you, and take your journey [H8798] H4057 into the wilderness H1870 by the way H5488 of the Red H3220 sea.
41 H6030 Then ye answered [H8799] H559 and said [H8799] H2398 unto me, We have sinned [H8804] H3068 against the LORD H5927 , we will go up [H8799] H3898 and fight [H8738] H3068 , according to all that the LORD H430 our God H6680 commanded [H8765] H2296 us. And when ye had girded [H8799] H376 on every man H3627 his weapons H4421 of war H1951 , ye were ready [H8686] H5927 to go up [H8800] H2022 into the hill.
42 H3068 And the LORD H559 said [H8799] H559 unto me, Say [H8798] H5927 unto them, Go not up [H8799] H3898 , neither fight [H8735] H7130 ; for I am not among H5062 you; lest ye be smitten [H8735] H6440 before H341 your enemies [H8802] .
43 H1696 So I spake [H8762] H8085 unto you; and ye would not hear [H8804] H4784 , but rebelled [H8686] H6310 against the commandment H3068 of the LORD H5927 , and went H2102 presumptuously [H8686] H5927 up [H8799] H2022 into the hill.
44 H567 And the Amorites H3427 , which dwelt [H8802] H2022 in that mountain H3318 , came out [H8799] H7125 against [H8800] H7291 you, and chased [H8799] H1682 you, as bees H6213 do [H8799] H3807 , and destroyed [H8686] H8165 you in Seir H2767 , even unto Hormah.
45 H7725 And ye returned [H8799] H1058 and wept [H8799] H6440 before H3068 the LORD H3068 ; but the LORD H8085 would not hearken [H8804] H6963 to your voice H238 , nor give ear [H8689] unto you.
