Numbers 14 Text (WEB)
  1. All the congregation lifted up their voice, and cried; and the people wept that night.
  2. All the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said to them, "Would that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would that we had died in this wilderness!
  3. Why does Yahweh bring us to this land, to fall by the sword? Our wives and our little ones will be a prey: wouldn't it be better for us to return into Egypt?"
  4. They said one to another, "Let us make a captain, and let us return into Egypt."
  5. Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel.
  6. Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were of those who spied out the land, tore their clothes:
  7. and they spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, "The land, which we passed through to spy it out, is an exceeding good land.
  8. If Yahweh delights in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it to us; a land which flows with milk and honey.
  9. Only don't rebel against Yahweh, neither fear the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defense is removed from over them, and Yahweh is with us. Don't fear them."
  10. But all the congregation threatened to stone them with stones. The glory of Yahweh appeared in the Tent of Meeting to all the children of Israel.
  11. Yahweh said to Moses, "How long will this people despise me? and how long will they not believe in me, for all the signs which I have worked among them?
  12. I will strike them with the pestilence, and disinherit them, and will make of you a nation greater and mightier than they."
  13. Moses said to Yahweh, "Then the Egyptians will hear it; for you brought up this people in your might from among them;
  14. and they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land. They have heard that you Yahweh are in the midst of this people; for you Yahweh are seen face to face, and your cloud stands over them, and you go before them, in a pillar of cloud by day, and in a pillar of fire by night.
  15. Now if you killed this people as one man, then the nations which have heard the fame of you will speak, saying,
  16. 'Because Yahweh was not able to bring this people into the land which he swore to them, therefore he has slain them in the wilderness.'
  17. Now please let the power of the Lord be great, according as you have spoken, saying,
  18. 'Yahweh is slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness, forgiving iniquity and disobedience; and that will by no means clear [the guilty], visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and on the fourth generation.'
  19. Please pardon the iniquity of this people according to the greatness of your loving kindness, and according as you have forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now."
  20. Yahweh said, "I have pardoned according to your word:
  21. but in very deed, as I live, and as all the earth shall be filled with the glory of Yahweh;
  22. because all those men who have seen my glory, and my signs, which I worked in Egypt and in the wilderness, yet have tempted me these ten times, and have not listened to my voice;
  23. surely they shall not see the land which I swore to their fathers, neither shall any of those who despised me see it:
  24. but my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and has followed me fully, him will I bring into the land into which he went; and his seed shall possess it.
  25. Now the Amalekite and the Canaanite dwell in the valley: tomorrow turn, and go into the wilderness by the way to the Red Sea."
  26. Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,
  27. "How long [shall I bear] with this evil congregation, that murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me.
  28. Tell them, 'As I live, says Yahweh, surely as you have spoken in my ears, so will I do to you:
  29. your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness; and all who were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, who have murmured against me,
  30. surely you shall not come into the land, concerning which I swore that I would make you dwell therein, except Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.
  31. But your little ones, that you said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which you have rejected.
  32. But as for you, your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness.
  33. Your children shall be wanderers in the wilderness forty years, and shall bear your prostitution, until your dead bodies be consumed in the wilderness.
  34. After the number of the days in which you spied out the land, even forty days, for every day a year, you will bear your iniquities, even forty years, and you will know my alienation.'
  35. I, Yahweh, have spoken, surely this will I do to all this evil congregation, who are gathered together against me: in this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die."
  36. The men, whom Moses sent to spy out the land, who returned, and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up an evil report against the land,
  37. even those men who did bring up an evil report of the land, died by the plague before Yahweh.
  38. But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, remained alive of those men who went to spy out the land.
  39. Moses told these words to all the children of Israel: and the people mourned greatly.
  40. They rose up early in the morning, and went up to the top of the mountain, saying, "Behold, we are here, and will go up to the place which Yahweh has promised: for we have sinned."
  41. Moses said, "Why now do you disobey the commandment of Yahweh, since it shall not prosper?
  42. Don't go up, for Yahweh isn't among you; that you not be struck down before your enemies.
  43. For there the Amalekite and the Canaanite are before you, and you shall fall by the sword: because you are turned back from following Yahweh, therefore Yahweh will not be with you."
  44. But they presumed to go up to the top of the mountain: nevertheless the ark of the covenant of Yahweh, and Moses, didn't depart out of the camp.
  45. Then the Amalekite came down, and the Canaanite who lived in that mountain, and struck them and beat them down, even to Hormah.
Numbers 14 Text (Hebrew)
  1. ותשא כל־העדה ויתנו את־קולם ויבכו העם בלילה ההוא׃
  2. וילנו על־משה ועל־אהרן כל בני ישראל ויאמרו אלהם כל־העדה לו־מתנו בארץ מצרים או במדבר הזה לו־מתנו׃
  3. ולמה יהוה מביא אתנו אל־הארץ הזאת לנפל בחרב נשינו וטפנו יהיו לבז הלוא טוב לנו שוב מצרימה׃
  4. ויאמרו איש אל־אחיו נתנה ראש ונשובה מצרימה׃
  5. ויפל משה ואהרן על־פניהם לפני כל־קהל עדת בני ישראל׃
  6. ויהושע בן־נון וכלב בן־יפנה מן־התרים את־הארץ קרעו בגדיהם׃
  7. ויאמרו אל־כל־עדת בני־ישראל לאמר הארץ אשר עברנו בה לתור אתה טובה הארץ מאד מאד׃
  8. אם־חפץ בנו יהוה והביא אתנו אל־הארץ הזאת ונתנה לנו ארץ אשר־הוא זבת חלב ודבש׃
  9. אך ביהוה אל־תמרדו ואתם אל־תיראו את־עם הארץ כי לחמנו הם סר צלם מעליהם ויהוה אתנו אל־תיראם׃
  10. ויאמרו כל־העדה לרגום אתם באבנים וכבוד יהוה נראה באהל מועד אל־כל־בני ישראל׃ ף
  11. ויאמר יהוה אל־משה עד־אנה ינאצני העם הזה ועד־אנה לא־יאמינו בי בכל האתות אשר עשיתי בקרבו׃
  12. אכנו בדבר ואורשנו ואעשה אתך לגוי־גדול ועצום ממנו׃
  13. ויאמר משה אל־יהוה ושמעו מצרים כי־העלית בכחך את־העם הזה מקרבו׃
  14. ואמרו אל־יושב הארץ הזאת שמעו כי־אתה יהוה בקרב העם הזה אשר־עין בעין נראה אתה יהוה ועננך עמד עלהם ובעמד עןן אתה הלך לפניהם יוםם ובעמוד אש לילה׃
  15. והמתה את־העם הזה כאיש אחד ואמרו הגוים אשר־שמעו את־שמעך לאמר׃
  16. מבלתי יכלת יהוה להביא את־העם הזה אל־הארץ אשר־נשבע להם וישחטם במדבר׃
  17. ועתה יגדל־נא כח אדני כאשר דברת לאמר׃
  18. יהוה ארך אפים ורב־חסד נשא עון ופשע ונקה לא ינקה פקד עון אבות על־בנים על־שלשים ועל־רבעים׃
  19. סלח־נא לעון העם הזה כגדל חסדך וכאשר נשאתה לעם הזה ממצרים ועד־הנה׃
  20. ויאמר יהוה סלחתי כדברך׃
  21. ואולם חי־אני וימלא כבוד־יהוה את־כל־הארץ׃
  22. כי כל־האנשים הראים את־כבדי ואת־אתתי אשר־עשיתי במצרים ובמדבר וינסו אתי זה עשר פעמים ולא שמעו בקולי׃
  23. אם־יראו את־הארץ אשר נשבעתי לאבתם וכל־מנאצי לא יראוה׃
  24. ועבדי כלב עקב היתה רוח אחרת עמו וימלא אחרי והביאתיו אל־הארץ אשר־בא שמה וזרעו יורשנה׃
  25. והעמלקי והכנעני יושב בעמק מחר פנו וסעו לכם המדבר דרך ים־סוף׃ ף
  26. וידבר יהוה אל־משה ואל־אהרן לאמר׃
  27. עד־מתי לעדה הרעה הזאת אשר המה מלינים עלי את־תלנות בני ישראל אשר המה מלינים עלי שמעתי׃
  28. אמר אלהם חי־אני נאם־יהוה אם־לא כאשר דברתם באזני כן אעשה לכם׃
  29. במדבר הזה יפלו פגריכם וכל־פקדיכם לכל־מספרכם מבן עשרים שנה ומעלה אשר הלינתם עלי׃
  30. אם־אתם תבאו אל־הארץ אשר נשאתי את־ידי לשכן אתכם בה כי אם־כלב בן־יפנה ויהושע בן־נון׃
  31. וטפכם אשר אמרתם לבז יהיה והביאתי אתם וידעו את־הארץ אשר מאסתם בה׃
  32. ופגריכם אתם יפלו במדבר הזה׃
  33. ובניכם יהיו רעים במדבר ארבעים שנה ונשאו את־זנותיכם עד־תם פגריכם במדבר׃
  34. במספר הימים אשר־תרתם את־הארץ ארבעים יום יום לשנה יום לשנה תשאו את־עונתיכם ארבעים שנה וידעתם את־תנואתי׃
  35. אני יהוה דברתי אם־לא זאת אעשה לכל־העדה הרעה הזאת הנועדים עלי במדבר הזה יתמו ושם ימתו׃
  36. והאנשים אשר־שלח משה לתור את־הארץ וישבו עליו את־כל־העדה להוציא דבה על־הארץ׃
  37. וימתו האנשים מוצאי דבת־הארץ רעה במגפה לפני יהוה׃
  38. ויהושע בן־נון וכלב בן־יפנה חיו מן־האנשים ההם ההלכים לתור את־הארץ׃
  39. וידבר משה את־הדברים האלה אל־כל־בני ישראל ויתאבלו העם מאד׃
  40. וישכמו בבקר ויעלו אל־ראש־ההר לאמר הננו ועלינו אל־המקום אשר־אמר יהוה כי חטאנו׃
  41. ויאמר משה למה זה אתם עברים את־פי יהוה והוא לא תצלח׃
  42. אל־תעלו כי אין יהוה בקרבכם ולא תנגפו לפני איביכם׃
  43. כי העמלקי והכנעני שם לפניכם ונפלתם בחרב כי־על־כן שבתם מאחרי יהוה ולא־יהיה יהוה עםכם׃
  44. ויעפלו לעלות אל־ראש ההר וארון ברית־יהוה ומשה לא־משו מקרב המחנה׃
  45. וירד העמלקי והכנעני הישב בהר ההוא ויכום ויכתום עד־החרמה׃ ף
Numbers 14 Text (Greek)
  1. και αναλαβουσα πασα η συναγωγη εδωκεν φωνην και εκλαιεν ο λαος ολην την νυκτα
  2. και διεγογγυζον επι μωυσην και ααρων παντες οι υιοι ισραηλ και ειπαν προς αυτους πασα η συναγωγη οφελον απεθανομεν εν γη αιγυπτω η εν τη ερημω ταυτη ει
  3. και ινα τι κυριος εισαγει ημας εις την γην ταυτην πεσειν εν πολεμω αι γυναικες ημων και τα παιδια εσονται εις διαρπαγην νυν ουν βελτιον ημιν εστιν αποστραφηναι εις
  4. και ειπαν ετερος τω ετερω δωμεν αρχηγον και αποστρεψωμεν εις
  5. και επεσεν μωυσης και ααρων επι προσωπον εναντιον πασης συναγωγης υιων
  6. ιησους δε ο του ναυη και χαλεβ ο του ιεφοννη των κατασκεψαμενων την γην διερρηξαν τα ιματια
  7. και ειπαν προς πασαν συναγωγην υιων ισραηλ λεγοντες η γη ην κατεσκεψαμεθα αυτην αγαθη εστιν σφοδρα
  8. ει αιρετιζει ημας κυριος εισαξει ημας εις την γην ταυτην και δωσει αυτην ημιν γη ητις εστιν ρεουσα γαλα και
  9. αλλα απο του κυριου μη αποσταται γινεσθε υμεις δε μη φοβηθητε τον λαον της γης οτι καταβρωμα ημιν εστιν αφεστηκεν γαρ ο καιρος απ' αυτων ο δε κυριος εν ημιν μη φοβηθητε
  10. και ειπεν πασα η συναγωγη καταλιθοβολησαι αυτους εν λιθοις και η δοξα κυριου ωφθη εν νεφελη επι της σκηνης του μαρτυριου εν πασι τοις υιοις
  11. και ειπεν κυριος προς μωυσην εως τινος παροξυνει με ο λαος ουτος και εως τινος ου πιστευουσιν μοι εν πασιν τοις σημειοις οις εποιησα εν
  12. παταξω αυτους θανατω και απολω αυτους και ποιησω σε και τον οικον του πατρος σου εις εθνος μεγα και πολυ μαλλον η
  13. και ειπεν μωυσης προς κυριον και ακουσεται αιγυπτος οτι ανηγαγες τη ισχυι σου τον λαον τουτον εξ
  14. αλλα και παντες οι κατοικουντες επι της γης ταυτης ακηκοασιν οτι συ ει κυριος εν τω λαω τουτω οστις οφθαλμοις κατ' οφθαλμους οπταζη κυριε και η νεφελη σου εφεστηκεν επ' αυτων και εν στυλω νεφελης συ πορευη προτερος αυτων την ημεραν και εν στυλω πυρος την
  15. και εκτριψεις τον λαον τουτον ωσει ανθρωπον ενα και ερουσιν τα εθνη οσοι ακηκοασιν το ονομα σου
  16. παρα το μη δυνασθαι κυριον εισαγαγειν τον λαον τουτον εις την γην ην ωμοσεν αυτοις κατεστρωσεν αυτους εν τη
  17. και νυν υψωθητω η ισχυς σου κυριε ον τροπον ειπας
  18. κυριος μακροθυμος και πολυελεος και αληθινος αφαιρων ανομιας και αδικιας και αμαρτιας και καθαρισμω ου καθαριει τον ενοχον αποδιδους αμαρτιας πατερων επι τεκνα εως τριτης και
  19. αφες την αμαρτιαν τω λαω τουτω κατα το μεγα ελεος σου καθαπερ ιλεως αυτοις εγενου απ' αιγυπτου εως του
  20. και ειπεν κυριος προς μωυσην ιλεως αυτοις ειμι κατα το ρημα
  21. αλλα ζω εγω και ζων το ονομα μου και εμπλησει η δοξα κυριου πασαν την
  22. οτι παντες οι ανδρες οι ορωντες την δοξαν μου και τα σημεια α εποιησα εν αιγυπτω και εν τη ερημω ταυτη και επειρασαν με τουτο δεκατον και ουκ εισηκουσαν μου της
  23. η μην ουκ οψονται την γην ην ωμοσα τοις πατρασιν αυτων αλλ' η τα τεκνα αυτων α εστιν μετ' εμου ωδε οσοι ουκ οιδασιν αγαθον ουδε κακον πας νεωτερος απειρος τουτοις δωσω την γην παντες δε οι παροξυναντες με ουκ οψονται
  24. ο δε παις μου χαλεβ οτι εγενηθη πνευμα ετερον εν αυτω και επηκολουθησεν μοι εισαξω αυτον εις την γην εις ην εισηλθεν εκει και το σπερμα αυτου κληρονομησει
  25. ο δε αμαληκ και ο χαναναιος κατοικουσιν εν τη κοιλαδι αυριον επιστραφητε υμεις και απαρατε εις την ερημον οδον θαλασσαν
  26. και ειπεν κυριος προς μωυσην και ααρων
  27. εως τινος την συναγωγην την πονηραν ταυτην α αυτοι γογγυζουσιν εναντιον εμου την γογγυσιν των υιων ισραηλ ην εγογγυσαν περι υμων
  28. ειπον αυτοις ζω εγω λεγει κυριος η μην ον τροπον λελαληκατε εις τα ωτα μου ουτως ποιησω
  29. εν τη ερημω ταυτη πεσειται τα κωλα υμων και πασα η επισκοπη υμων και οι κατηριθμημενοι υμων απο εικοσαετους και επανω οσοι εγογγυσαν επ'
  30. ει υμεις εισελευσεσθε εις την γην εφ' ην εξετεινα την χειρα μου κατασκηνωσαι υμας επ' αυτης αλλ' η χαλεβ υιος ιεφοννη και ιησους ο του
  31. και τα παιδια α ειπατε εν διαρπαγη εσεσθαι εισαξω αυτους εις την γην και κληρονομησουσιν την γην ην υμεις απεστητε απ'
  32. και τα κωλα υμων πεσειται εν τη ερημω
  33. οι δε υιοι υμων εσονται νεμομενοι εν τη ερημω τεσσαρακοντα ετη και ανοισουσιν την πορνειαν υμων εως αν αναλωθη τα κωλα υμων εν τη
  34. κατα τον αριθμον των ημερων οσας κατεσκεψασθε την γην τεσσαρακοντα ημερας ημεραν του ενιαυτου λημψεσθε τας αμαρτιας υμων τεσσαρακοντα ετη και γνωσεσθε τον θυμον της οργης
  35. εγω κυριος ελαλησα η μην ουτως ποιησω τη συναγωγη τη πονηρα ταυτη τη επισυνεσταμενη επ' εμε εν τη ερημω ταυτη εξαναλωθησονται και εκει
  36. και οι ανθρωποι ους απεστειλεν μωυσης κατασκεψασθαι την γην και παραγενηθεντες διεγογγυσαν κατ' αυτης προς την συναγωγην εξενεγκαι ρηματα πονηρα περι της
  37. και απεθανον οι ανθρωποι οι κατειπαντες κατα της γης πονηρα εν τη πληγη εναντι
  38. και ιησους υιος ναυη και χαλεβ υιος ιεφοννη εζησαν απο των ανθρωπων εκεινων των πεπορευμενων κατασκεψασθαι την
  39. και ελαλησεν μωυσης τα ρηματα ταυτα προς παντας υιους ισραηλ και επενθησεν ο λαος
  40. και ορθρισαντες το πρωι ανεβησαν εις την κορυφην του ορους λεγοντες ιδου οιδε ημεις αναβησομεθα εις τον τοπον ον ειπεν κυριος οτι
  41. και ειπεν μωυσης ινα τι υμεις παραβαινετε το ρημα κυριου ουκ ευοδα εσται
  42. μη αναβαινετε ου γαρ εστιν κυριος μεθ' υμων και πεσεισθε προ προσωπου των εχθρων
  43. οτι ο αμαληκ και ο χαναναιος εκει εμπροσθεν υμων και πεσεισθε μαχαιρα ου εινεκεν απεστραφητε απειθουντες κυριω και ουκ εσται κυριος εν
  44. και διαβιασαμενοι ανεβησαν επι την κορυφην του ορους η δε κιβωτος της διαθηκης κυριου και μωυσης ουκ εκινηθησαν εκ της
  45. και κατεβη ο αμαληκ και ο χαναναιος ο εγκαθημενος εν τω ορει εκεινω και ετρεψαντο αυτους και κατεκοψαν αυτους εως ερμαν και απεστραφησαν εις την
Numbers 14 Text (Latin)
  1. Igitur vociferans omnis turba flevit nocte illa,
  2. et murmurati sunt contra Moysen et Aaron cuncti filii Israël, dicentes :
  3. Utinam mortui essemus in Ægypto : et in hac vasta solitudine utinam pereamus, et non inducat nos Dominus in terram istam, ne cadamus gladio, et uxores ac liberi nostri ducantur captivi. Nonne melius est reverti in Ægyptum ?
  4. Dixeruntque alter ad alterum : Constituamus nobis ducem, et revertamur in Ægyptum.
  5. Quo audito, Moyses et Aaron ceciderunt proni in terram coram omni multitudine filiorum Israël.
  6. At vero Josue filius Nun et Caleb filius Jephone, qui et ipsi lustraverant terram, sciderunt vestimenta sua,
  7. et ad omnem multitudinem filiorum Israël locuti sunt : Terra, quam circuivimus, valde bona est.
  8. Si propitius fuerit Dominus, inducet nos in eam, et tradet humum lacte et melle manantem.
  9. Nolite rebelles esse contra Dominum : neque timeatis populum terræ hujus, quia sicut panem ita eos possumus devorare. Recessit ab eis omne præsidium : Dominus nobiscum est, nolite metuere.
  10. Cumque clamaret omnis multitudo, et lapidibus eos vellet opprimere, apparuit gloria Domini super tectum fœderis cunctis filiis Israël.
  11. Et dixit Dominus ad Moysen : Usquequo detrahet mihi populus iste ? quousque non credent mihi, in omnibus signis quæ feci coram eis ?
  12. Feriam igitur eos pestilentia, atque consumam : te autem faciam principem super gentem magnam, et fortiorem quam hæc est.
  13. Et ait Moyses ad Dominum : Ut audiant Ægyptii, de quorum medio eduxisti populum istum,
  14. et habitatores terræ hujus, qui audierunt quod tu, Domine, in populo isto sis, et facie videaris ad faciem, et nubes tua protegat illos, et in columna nubis præcedas eos per diem, et in columna ignis per noctem :
  15. quod occideris tantam multitudinem quasi unum hominem, et dicant :
  16. Non poterat introducere populum in terram pro qua juraverat : idcirco occidit eos in solitudine ?
  17. Magnificetur ergo fortitudo Domini sicut jurasti, dicens :
  18. Dominus patiens et multæ misericordiæ, auferens iniquitatem et scelera, nullumque innoxium derelinquens, qui visitas peccata patrum in filios in tertiam et quartam generationem.
  19. Dimitte, obsecro, peccatum populi hujus secundum magnitudinem misericordiæ tuæ, sicut propitius fuisti egredientibus de Ægypto usque ad locum istum.
  20. Dixitque Dominus : Dimisi juxta verbum tuum.
  21. Vivo ego : et implebitur gloria Domini universa terra.
  22. Attamen omnes homines qui viderunt majestatem meam, et signa quæ feci in Ægypto et in solitudine, et tentaverunt me jam per decem vices, nec obedierunt voci meæ,
  23. non videbunt terram pro qua juravi patribus eorum, nec quisquam ex illis qui detraxit mihi, intuebitur eam.
  24. Servum meum Caleb, qui plenus alio spiritu secutus est me, inducam in terram hanc, quam circuivit ; et semen ejus possidebit eam.
  25. Quoniam Amalecites et Chananæus habitant in vallibus. Cras movete castra, et revertimini in solitudinem per viam maris Rubri.
  26. Locutusque est Dominus ad Moysen et Aaron, dicens :
  27. Usquequo multitudo hæc pessima murmurat contra me ? querelas filiorum Israël audivi.
  28. Dic ergo eis : Vivo ego, ait Dominus : sicut locuti estis audiente me, sic faciam vobis.
  29. In solitudine hac jacebunt cadavera vestra. Omnes qui numerati estis a viginti annis et supra, et murmurastis contra me,
  30. non intrabitis terram, super quam levavi manum meam ut habitare vos facerem, præter Caleb filium Jephone, et Josue filium Nun.
  31. Parvulos autem vestros, de quibus dixistis quod prædæ hostibus forent, introducam, ut videant terram, quæ vobis displicuit.
  32. Vestra cadavera jacebunt in solitudine.
  33. Filii vestri erunt vagi in deserto annis quadraginta, et portabunt fornicationem vestram, donec consumantur cadavera patrum in deserto,
  34. juxta numerum quadraginta dierum, quibus considerastis terram : annus pro die imputabitur. Et quadraginta annis recipietis iniquitates vestras, et scietis ultionem meam :
  35. quoniam sicut locutus sum, ita faciam omni multitudini huic pessimæ, quæ consurrexit adversum me : in solitudine hac deficiet, et morietur.
  36. Igitur omnes viri, quos miserat Moyses ad contemplandam terram, et qui reversi murmurare fecerant contra eum omnem multitudinem, detrahentes terræ quod esset mala,
  37. mortui sunt atque percussi in conspectu Domini.
  38. Josue autem filius Nun, et Caleb filius Jephone, vixerunt ex omnibus qui perrexerant ad considerandam terram.
  39. Locutusque est Moyses universa verba hæc ad omnes filios Israël, et luxit populus nimis.
  40. Et ecce mane primo surgentes ascenderunt verticem montis, atque dixerunt : Parati sumus ascendere ad locum, de quo Dominus locutus est : quia peccavimus.
  41. Quibus Moyses : Cur, inquit, transgredimini verbum Domini, quod vobis non cedet in prosperum ?
  42. nolite ascendere : non enim est Dominus vobiscum : ne corruatis coram inimicis vestris.
  43. Amalecites et Chananæus ante vos sunt, quorum gladio corruetis, eo quod nolueritis acquiescere Domino : nec erit Dominus vobiscum.
  44. At illi contenebrati ascenderunt in verticem montis. Arca autem testamenti Domini et Moyses non recesserunt de castris.
  45. Descenditque Amalecites et Chananæus, qui habitabat in monte : et percutiens eos atque concidens, persecutus est eos usque Horma.
Numbers 14 Text (KJV)
  1. And all the congregation lifted up their voice, and cried; and the people wept that night.
  2. And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this wilderness!
  3. And wherefore hath the LORD brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt?
  4. And they said one to another, Let us make a captain, and let us return into Egypt.
  5. Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel.
  6. And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes:
  7. And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land.
  8. If the LORD delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.
  9. Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not.
