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