shall by no means see the land which I swore to their fathers, nor shall any of those who spurned Me see it.
‘None of the men who came up from Egypt, from twenty years old and upward, shall see the land which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob; for they did not follow Me fully,
But among these there was not a man of those who were numbered by Moses and Aaron the priest, who numbered the sons of Israel in the wilderness of Sinai.
Also I swore to them in the wilderness that I would not bring them into the land which I had given them, flowing with milk and honey, which is the glory of all lands,
‘Not one of these men, this evil generation, shall see the good land which I swore to give your fathers,
“You made their sons numerous as the stars of heaven,
And You brought them into the land
Which You had told their fathers to enter and possess.
“Therefore I swore in My anger,
Truly they shall not enter into My rest.”
Therefore He swore to them
That He would cast them down in the wilderness,
And with whom was He angry for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness?
For we who have believed enter that rest, just as He has said,
“As I swore in My wrath,
They shall not enter My rest,”
although His works were finished from the foundation of the world.
