Forty years long was I grieved with that generation, and said, "They ever err in their hearts, they verily have not known my ways."


Our fathers regarded not thy wonders in Egypt, neither kept they thy great goodness in remembrance, but were disobedient at the sea, even at the reed sea. Nevertheless, he helped them for his name's sake, that he might make his power to be known. He rebuked the reed sea, and it was dried up: so he led them through the deep, as through a wilderness. read more.
And he saved them from the adversary's hand, and delivered them from the hand of the enemy. As for those that troubled them, the waters overwhelmed them; there was not one of them left. Then believed they in his word, and sang praise unto him. But within a while they forgot his works, and would not abide his counsel. A lust came upon them in the wilderness, so that they tempted God in the desert. And he gave them their desire, but sent leanness withal into their soul. They angered Moses in the tents, and Aaron the saint of the LORD. So the earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the congregation of Abiram. The fire was kindled in their company; the flame burnt up the ungodly. They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image. Thus they turned their glory into the similitude of a calf, that eateth hay. They forgot God their Savior, which had done so great things in Egypt, wondrous works in the land of Ham, and fearful things in the reed sea. So he said he would have destroyed them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in that gap; to turn away his wrathful indignation, lest he should destroy them. Yea, they thought scorn of that pleasant land, and gave no credence unto his word, but murmured in their tents, and hearkened not unto the voice of the LORD. Then lift he up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness, to cast out their seed among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands. They joined themselves unto Baal-Peor, and ate the offerings of the dead. Thus they provoked him unto anger with their own inventions; and the plague was great among them. Then stood up Phinehas, and executed justice; and so the plague ceased. And that was counted unto him for righteousness, among all posterities for evermore. They angered him also at the waters of strife, so that he punished Moses for their sakes, because they provoked his spirit, so that he spoke unadvisedly with his lips. Neither destroyed they the Heathen, as the LORD commanded them, but were mingled among the Heathen, and learned their works - insomuch that they worshipped their idols, which turned to their own decay. Yea, they offered their sons and their daughters unto devils, and shed the innocent blood of their sons and of their daughters; whom they offered unto the idols of Canaan, so that the land was defiled with blood. Thus were they stained with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.


For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people of men of war that came out of Egypt were consumed, which hearkened not unto the voice of God; so that the LORD sware, that he would not show them the land which the LORD sware unto their fathers, that he would give us even a land that floweth with milk and honey.

Notwithstanding, ye would not consent to go up, but were disobedient unto the mouth of the LORD your God,

And the multitude cried out, and the people wept throughout that night, and all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron. And the whole congregation said unto them, "Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt, either we would that we had died in this wilderness. Wherefore hath the LORD brought us unto this land to fall upon the sword, that both our wives, and also our children should be a prey? Is it not better that we return unto Egypt again?" read more.
And they said, one to another, "Let us make a captain and return unto Egypt again." And Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the congregation of the multitude of the children of Israel. And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes and spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, "The land which we walked through to search it, is a very good land. If the LORD have lust to us, he will bring us into this land and give it us, which is a land that floweth with milk and honey. But in any wise, rebel not against the LORD. Moreover fear ye not the people of the land, for they are but bread for us. Their shield is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not therefore." And all the whole multitude bade stone them with stones. But the glory of the LORD appeared in the tabernacle of witness, unto all the children of Israel.

For I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of the Egyptians, that ye should not be their bondmen, and I broke the bows of your yokes, and made you go upright. "'But and if ye will not hearken unto me, nor will do all these my commandments, or if ye shall despise mine ordinances, either if your souls refuse my laws, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but shall break mine covenant: read more.
then I will do this again unto you: I will visit you with vexations, swelling, and fevers, that shall make your eyes dazzle; and with sorrows of heart. And ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. And I will set my face against you and ye shall fall before your enemies, and they that hate you shall reign over you, and ye shall flee when no man followeth you. "'And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then will I punish you seven times more for your sins, and will break the pride of your strength. For I will make the heaven over you as hard as iron, and your land as hard as brass. And so your labour shall be spent in vain. For your land shall not give her increase, neither the trees of the land shall give their fruits. And if ye walk contrary unto me and will not hearken unto me, I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins. I will send in wild beasts upon you, which shall rob you of your children and destroy your cattle, and make you so few in number that your highways shall grow unto a wilderness.

Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt which thou wast afraid of, and they shall cleave unto thee. read more.

And the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and her merchants are waxed rich of the abundance of her pleasures." read more.
And I heard another voice from heaven say, "Come away from her, my people, that ye be not partakers in her sins, that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins are gone up to heaven, and God hath remembered her wickedness. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and give her double according to her works. And pour in double to her in the same cup which she filled unto you. And as much as she glorified herself and lived wantonly, so much pour ye in for her of punishment, and sorrow, for she said in her heart, 'I sit, being a queen and am no widow and shall see no sorrow.' Therefore shall her plagues come at one day; death, and sorrow, and hunger, and she shall be burnt with fire: for strong is the Lord God which judgeth her.

And the LORD testified to Israel and to Judah, by all the prophets and by all the seers, saying, "Turn from your wicked ways and keep my commandments and mine ordinances according to all the laws which I commanded your fathers, and as I sent to you by my servants the prophets." Notwithstanding, they would not hear, but hardened their necks, like to the necks of their fathers that did not believe the LORD their God.

But they left the commandments of the LORD their God and made them Images of metal, even two calves: and made groves and bowed themselves unto all the Host of heaven, and served Baal. And they sacrificed their sons and their daughters in fire, and used witchcraft and enchantments, and were sold to work wickedness in the sight of the LORD, for to anger him. Wherefore the LORD was exceeding wroth with Israel and put them out of his sight, that there was left but the tribe of Judah only. And thereto Judah kept not the commandments of the LORD their God, but walked in the ordinances of Israel which they had made. Therefore the LORD cast up all the seed of Israel and vexed them and delivered them into the hands of spoilers, until he had cast them out of his sight. And Israel divided themselves from the house of David, and made Jeroboam the son of Nebat king. Which Jeroboam thrust Israel away from the LORD and made them sin a great sin. And so the children of Israel walked in all the sin of Jeroboam which he had set up, and departed not therefrom, until the LORD had put Israel away out of his sight, as he said by all his servants the prophets. And so he translated Israel out of their land to Assyria, even unto this day.

Lo, he smote the stony rock, that the watery streams gushed out, and the streams flowed withal: but how can he give bread and provide flesh for his people?" When the LORD heard this, he was wroth: so the fire was kindled in Jacob, and heavy displeasure against Israel, because they believed not in God, and put not their trust in his help. So he commanded the clouds above, and opened the doors of heaven. He rained down manna upon them for to eat, and gave them bread from heaven. Then ate they angels' food, for he sent them meat enough. He caused the east wind to blow under the heaven, and through his power he brought in the southwest wind. He rained down manna upon them as thick as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea. He let it fall among their tents, even round about their habitations. So they ate, and were filled, for he gave them their own desire. And they were not disappointed of their lust. But while their meat was yet in their mouths, the heavy wrath of God came upon them, and slew the wealthiest of them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel.
