1 H1697 These are the words H4872 which Moses H1696 spoke H3478 to 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 Dizahab.
2 H259 It is eleven H3117 days' H2722 journey from Horeb H1870 by the way H2022 of Mount H8165 Seir H6947 to Kadesh Barnea.
3 H705 It happened in the fortieth H8141 year, H6249 in the eleventh H2320 month, H259 on the first H2320 day of the month, H4872 that Moses H1696 spoke H1121 to the children H3478 of Israel, H3068 according to all that Yahweh H6680 had given him in commandment to them;
4 H310 after H5221 he had struck H5511 Sihon H4428 the king H567 of the Amorites, H3427 who lived H2809 in Heshbon, H5747 and Og H4428 the king H1316 of Bashan, H3427 who lived 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 "Yahweh H430 our God H1696 spoke H2722 to us in Horeb, H559 saying, H3427 You have lived H7227 long enough H2022 in this mountain:
7 H6437 turn, H5265 and take your journey, H935 and go H2022 to the hill H567 country of the Amorites, H7934 and to all the places near H6160 there, in the Arabah, H2022 in the hill H8219 country, and in the lowland, H5045 and in the South, H3220 and by the H2348 seashore, 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 Yahweh H7650 swore H1 to your fathers, H85 to Abraham, H3327 to Isaac, H3290 and to Jacob, H5414 to give H2233 to them and to their seed H310 after them."
9 H559 I spoke H6256 to you at that time, H559 saying, H3201 "I am not able H5375 to bear H905 you myself alone:
10 H3068 Yahweh H430 your God H7235 has multiplied H3117 you, and behold, you are this day H3556 as the stars H8064 of the sky H7230 for multitude.
11 H3068 Yahweh, H430 the God H1 of your fathers, H505 make you a thousand H6471 times H3254 as many as H1288 you are, and bless H1696 you, as he has promised you!
12 H349 How H5375 can I myself alone bear H2960 your encumbrance, H4853 and your burden, H7379 and your strife?
13 H3051 Take H2450 wise H582 men H995 of understanding H3045 and well known H7626 according to your tribes, H7760 and I will make H7218 them heads over you."
14 H6030 You answered H559 me, and said, H1697 "The thing H559 which you have spoken H2896 is good H6213 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 I commanded H8199 your judges H6256 at that time, H559 saying, H8085 "Hear H251 cases between your brothers, H8199 and judge H6664 righteously H376 between a man H251 and his brother, H1616 and the foreigner who is living with him.
17 H6440 You shall not show H5234 partiality H4941 in judgment; H8085 you shall hear H6996 the small H1419 and the great H1481 alike; you shall not be afraid H6440 of the face H376 of man; H4941 for the judgment H430 is God's. H1697 The case H7185 that is too hard H7126 for you, you shall bring H8085 to me, and I will hear it."
19 H5265 We traveled H2722 from Horeb, H3212 and went through H1419 all that great H3372 and terrible H4057 wilderness H7200 which you saw, H1870 by the way H2022 to the hill H567 country of the Amorites, H3068 as Yahweh H430 our God H6680 commanded H935 us; and we came H6947 to Kadesh Barnea.
20 H559 I said H935 to you, "You have come H2022 to the hill H567 country of the Amorites, H3068 which Yahweh H430 our God H5414 gives to us.
21 H7200 Behold, H3068 Yahweh H430 your God H5414 has set H776 the land H6440 before H5927 you: go up, H3423 take possession, H3068 as Yahweh, H430 the God H1 of your fathers, H1696 has spoken H3372 to you; don't be afraid, H2865 neither be dismayed."
22 H7126 You came near H559 to me everyone 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 to which we shall come."
23 H1697 The thing H3190 pleased me well; H3947 and I took H8147 twelve H582 men H259 of you, one H582 man H376 for every tribe:
24 H6437 and they turned H5927 and went up H2022 into the hill H935 country, and came H5158 to the valley H812 of Eshcol, H7270 and spied it out.
25 H3947 They took H6529 of the fruit H776 of the land H3027 in their hands, H3381 and brought it down H7725 to us, and brought H1697 us word H7725 again, H559 and said, H2896 "It is a good H776 land H3068 which Yahweh H430 our God H5414 gives to us."
26 H14 Yet you wouldn't H5927 go up, H4784 but rebelled H6310 against the commandment H3068 of Yahweh H430 your God:
27 H7279 and you murmured H168 in your tents, H559 and said, H3068 "Because Yahweh H8135 hated H3318 us, he has 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 Where are we going up? H251 our brothers 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 the sky; H7200 and moreover we have seen H1121 the sons H6062 of the Anakim there.'"
30 H3068 Yahweh H430 your God H1980 who goes 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 you have seen H3068 how that Yahweh H430 your God H5375 bore H376 you, as a man H5375 does bear H1121 his son, H1870 in all the way H1980 that you went, H935 until you came H4725 to 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 you should go, H6051 and in the cloud H3119 by day.
34 H3068 Yahweh H8085 heard H6963 the voice H1697 of your words, H7107 and was angry, H7650 and swore, H559 saying,
35 H376 "Surely not one H582 of these men H7451 of this evil H1755 generation H7200 shall see H2896 the good H776 land, H7650 which I swore H5414 to give H1 to your fathers,
36 H2108 except 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 has trodden on, H1121 and to his children, H4390 because he has wholly H310 followed H3068 Yahweh."
37 H3068 Also Yahweh H599 was angry H1558 with me for your sakes, H559 saying, H935 "You also shall not go H8033 in there:
38 H3091 Joshua H1121 the son H5126 of Nun, H5975 who stands H6440 before H935 you, he shall go in H2388 there: encourage H3478 you him; for he shall cause Israel H5157 to inherit it.
39 H2945 Moreover your little ones, H559 whom you said H957 should be a prey, H1121 and your children, H3117 who this day H3045 have no knowledge H2896 of good H7451 or evil, H935 they shall go in H5414 there, and to them will I give H3423 it, and they shall possess it.
40 H6437 But as for you, turn, H5265 and take your journey H4057 into the wilderness H1870 by the way H5488 to the Red H3220 Sea."
41 H6030 Then you answered H559 and said H2398 to me, "We have sinned H3068 against Yahweh, H5927 we will go up H3898 and fight, H3068 according to all that Yahweh H430 our God H6680 commanded H376 us." Every man H2296 of you put H3627 on his weapons H4421 of war, H1951 and presumed H5927 to go up H2022 into the hill country.
42 H3068 Yahweh H559 said H559 to me, "Tell H5927 them, ‘Don't go up, H3898 neither fight; H7130 for I am not among H5062 you; lest you be struck H6440 before H341 your enemies.'"
43 H1696 So I spoke H8085 to you, and you didn't listen; H4784 but you rebelled H6310 against the commandment H3068 of Yahweh, H2102 and were presumptuous, H5927 and went H5927 up H2022 into the hill country.
44 H567 The Amorites, H3427 who lived H2022 in that hill H3318 country, came out H7125 against H7291 you, and chased H1682 you, as bees H6213 do, H3807 and beat H8165 you down in Seir, H2767 even to Hormah.
45 H7725 You returned H1058 and wept H6440 before H3068 Yahweh; H3068 but Yahweh H8085 didn't listen H6963 to your voice, H238 nor gave ear to you.
