These, are they who were numbered by Moses, and Eleazar, the priest, - when they numbered the sons of Israel, in the waste plains of Moab, by Jordan, near Jericho. And among these, was there not found a man of them who had been numbered by Moses, and Aaron the priest, - when they numbered the sons of Israel in the desert of Sinai.

Forty years old, was I when Moses the servant of Yahweh sent me from Kadesh-barnea to spy out the land, - so I brought him back word, as was in my heart. But, my brethren who had been up with me, made the heart of the people melt, - whereas, I, wholly followed Yahweh my God. read more.
So then Moses sware on that day saying, Surely, the land on which thy foot hath trodden, unto thee, shall belong, for an inheritance, and unto thy sons, unto times age-abiding, - because thou hast wholly followed Yahweh my God. Now, therefore lo! Yahweh hath kept me alive as he spake these forty and five years from the time Yahweh spake this word unto Moses, while Israel journeyed in the desert. Now, therefore lo! I - to-day, am eighty and five years old: I remain, to-day, as courageous as on the day when Moses sent me, as my strength was then, so also my strength is now, - for war, both to go out and to come in. Now, therefore, give me this mountain, whereof Yahweh spake, on that day, - for, thou thyself, didst hear, on that day, that, Anakim, were there, and great cities fortified, if so be Yahweh be with me, then shall I dispossess them, as spake Yahweh. So Joshua blessed him, and gave Hebron unto Caleb son of Jephunneh, for an inheritance.

And Moses and Aaron gathered together the convocation before the cliff, - and he said unto them: Hear I pray you ye rebels! Out of this cliff, must we bring forth for you water?

How should I carry by myself the fatigue of you and the burden of you and your controversies?

So Moses and Aaron said unto all the sons of Israel, - At eventide, then shall ye know that it was, Yahweh, who brought you forth, out of the land of Egypt; and, in the morning, then shall ye see the glory of Yahweh, in that he hath heard your murmurings against Yahweh, - what then are, we, that ye should murmur against, us?

And it came to pass when he drew near unto the camp, and saw the calf, and the dancings, that the anger of Moses kindled, and he cast out of his hands the tables, and brake them in pieces at the foot of the mountain. Then took he the calf which they had made and burned it in the fire, and ground it till it became powder, and strewed it on the face of the waters, and made the sons of Israel drink. And Moses said unto Aaron, What had this people done to thee, - that thou shouldst have brought upon them a great sin? read more.
And Aaron said, Let not the anger of my lord kindle, - thou thyself, knowest the people, that ready for mischief, they are. So they said to me - Make for us gods, who shall go before us, - for, as for this, Moses - the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we know not what hath befallen him. And I said to them - Whosoever hath gold let them break it off, So they gave it to me, - and I cast it into the fire, and there came out - this calf. And Moses saw the people, that unbridled, they were, - for Aaron had given them the rein, for a whispering, among their enemies. So Moses took his stand in the gate of the camp, and said - Who is for Yahweh? -- To me! Then gathered unto him all the sons of Levi, And he said to them - Thus, saith Yahweh, God of Israel, Put ye every man his sword upon his thigh, - pass through and return from gate to gate in the camp, and slay ye every man his brother and every man his friend and every man his neighbour. So the sons of Levi did, according to the word of Moses, - and there fell from among the people on that day, about three thousand men. And Moses said - Install yourselves to-day, unto Yahweh, yea every man for his son and for his brother, - so will he bestow upon you to-day, a blessing. And it came to pass, on the morrow, that Moses said unto the people, Ye, have sinned a great sin, - Now, therefore, I must go up unto Yahweh, Peradventure, I may make a propitiatory-covering for your sin.

But Moses said, Wherefore is it that, ye, are going beyond the bidding of Yahweh, - since that cannot prosper?

Nevertheless ye were not willing to go up, - but rebelled against the bidding of Yahweh, your God; and murmured in your tents and said, Because Yahweh hated us, hath he brought us forth out of the land of Egypt, - to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us. Whither, are, we, to go up? Our own brethren, have made our heart melt saying - A people greater and taller than we, cities large and walled-up into the heavens, - yea, moreover sons of Anakim, have we seen there. read more.
Then I said unto you, - Ye must not tremble, nor be afraid of them: Yahweh your God, who is going before you, he, will fight for you, - according to all that he did with you in Egypt, before your eyes; also in the desert which thou hast seen, where Yahweh thy God carried thee as a man will carry his son, throughout all the way that ye journeyed, until ye entered as far as, this place. But in this firing, ye were putting no trust in Yahweh your God; who was going before you in the way - to search out for you a place, where ye might encamp, - in the fire by night, that ye might get sight of the way wherein ye should go, and in the cloud, by day. And Yahweh heard the voice of your words, - and was wroth and sware - saying: Surely, not one of these men, this wicked generation, - shall see the good land, which I sware to give unto your fathers: saving Caleb son of Jephunneh, he, shall see it, and unto him, will I give the land through which he hath trodden, and unto his sons, - because he hath wholly followed Yahweh. Even with me, did Yahweh show himself angry, for your sakes, saying, - Even thou, shalt not enter therein. Joshua son of Nun, who standeth before thee, he, shall enter in thither, him, strengthen thou, for he, shall cause Israel to inherit it. And your little ones, of whom ye said they should become, a prey, and your sons who to-day know not good and evil, they, shall enter in thither, - and unto them, will I give it, and they, shall possess it. But as for you, turn ye, for your part, - and set forward towards the desert, by way of the Red Sea. Then responded ye and said unto me - We have sinned against Yahweh, We, ourselves, will go up, and fight, according to all that Yahweh our God hath commanded us. And when ye had girded on every man his weapons of war, ye foolishly went up towards the hill-country. Then said Yahweh unto me - Say unto them Ye shall not go up, nor fight, for I am not in your midst, - lest ye should be smitten before your enemies. So I spake unto you howbeit ye hearkened not, - but rebelled against the bidding of Yahweh, and presumptuously went up the hill-country.

Then looked I, and lo! ye had sinned against Yahweh your God, ye had made you a molten calf, - ye had turned aside quickly, out of the way which Yahweh had commanded you. So I seized the two tables, and cast them from off my two hands, - and brake them in pieces before your eyes. Then lay I prostrate before Yahweh as at the first, forty days and forty nights, food, did I not eat, and water, did I not drink, - because of all your sin which ye had sinned, in doing the thing that was wicked, in the eyes of Yahweh. to provoke him to anger. read more.
For I shrank with fear from the face of the anger and the hot displeasure, wherewith Yahweh was provoked against you to destroy you, - but Yahweh hearkened unto me, even at that time. And with Aaron, did Yahweh show himself exceedingly angry, to destroy him, - so I prostrated myself, even in behalf of Aaron at that time. And your sin which ye had made even the calf, took I and burned it up with fire, and pounded it very small, until it was fine as dust, - then cast I the dust thereof into the torrent that descended out of the mountain. Also, at Taberah, and at Massah, and at Kibroth-hataavah, a cause of provocation, became ye unto Yahweh. Also when Yahweh sent you out of Kadesh-barnea saying, Go up and possess the land which I have given unto you then quarreled ye with the bidding of Yahweh your God, and trusted him not, neither hearkened unto his voice. Ye have been quarrelling, with Yahweh, - from the day that I first knew you.

And Moses called unto all Israel and said unto them, - Ye yourselves, saw all that Yahweh did before your eyes in the land of Egypt, unto Pharaoh and unto all his servants and unto all his land: the great provings which thine own eyes saw, - those great signs and wonders: yet hath Yahweh not given onto you a heart to know, or eyes to see or ears to hear, - until this day.

For, I, know thy perverseness, and thy stiff neck, - lo! while I am yet alive with you to-day, ye are, quarrelling, with Yahweh, and how much more after my death? Call together unto me all the elders of your tribes and your officers, - and let me speak in their hearing these words, and let me take to witness against them the heavens and the earth. For I know that after my death, ye will break faith, and turn aside out of the way which I have commanded you, - and calamity will befall you in the afterpart of the days, because ye will do the thing that is wicked in the eyes of Yahweh, to provoke him with the work of your own hands.

Then Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: Thou wast fat, Thou wast thick, Thou wast gorged, So he forsook the GOD who made him, And treated as foolish his Rock of salvation. They moved him to jealousy with foreign gods , - With abominations, angered they him: They sacrificed to mischievous demons to a No-GOD, Gods whom they knew not, - New ones lately come in, Your fathers never shuddered at them! read more.
Of the Rock who had begotten thee, thou wast unmindful, - And didst forget GOD who had given thee birth.


Surely, not one of these men, this wicked generation, - shall see the good land, which I sware to give unto your fathers:
