29 Then I said to you, Do not be terrified, neither be afraid of them.
30 Jehovah your God, who goes before you, He will fight for you according to all that He did for you in Egypt before your eyes,
31 And in the wilderness, where you have seen that Jehovah your God carried you, as a man carries his son, in all the way that you went until you came to this place.
32 Yet in spite of this word you did not believe in Jehovah your God,
33 Who went before you in the way, to seek out for you a place for you to camp, in the fire by night to show you by which way you should go and in the cloud by day.
34 And Jehovah heard the voice of your words, and He became furious and swore, saying,
35 Not one of these men, this evil generation, shall by any means see the good land which I have sworn to give to your fathers,
36 Except Caleb the son of Jephunneh; he shall see it. And to him I will give the land on which he has trodden, and to his children, because he has fully followed Jehovah.
37 With me also Jehovah was angry on your account, saying, You also shall not enter there;
38 Joshua the son of Nun, who attends to you, he shall enter there. Strengthen him, for it is he who will cause Israel to inherit it.
39 Moreover your little ones, who you said would be prey, and your children, who this day do not know good and evil, they shall enter there. And to them I will give it, and they will possess it.
40 But as for you, turn and set out into the wilderness by the way that leads to the Red Sea.
41 Then you answered and said to me, We have sinned against Jehovah; we ourselves will go up and fight according to all that Jehovah our God has commanded us. And you girded yourselves, every man with his weapons of war, and thought it a light thing to go up to the hill country.
42 And Jehovah said to me, Say to them, You shall not go up and fight, for I am not among you, so that you are not struck down before your enemies.
43 So I spoke to you, but you did not listen; rather, you rebelled against the word of Jehovah and went up presumptuously to the hill country.
44 And the Amorites who dwell in that hill country came out against you and chased you as bees do; and they beat you back in Seir as far as Hormah.
45 And you returned and wept before Jehovah; but Jehovah did not listen to your voice nor give ear to you.
46 So you remained in Kadesh for many days, as many days as you remained.
