Acts 7:36
This man led them out and performed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, at the Red Sea, and in the desert for 40 years.
Acts 7:39-43
39
Our forefathers were unwilling to obey him, but pushed him away, and in their hearts turned back to Egypt.
40
They told Aaron: Make us gods who will go before us. As for this Moses who brought us out of the land of Egypt, we don't know what's become of him.
41
They even made a calf in those days, offered sacrifice to the idol, and were celebrating what their hands had made.
42
Then God turned away and gave them up to worship the host of heaven, as it is written in the book of the prophets: Did you bring Me offerings and sacrifices for 40 years in the desert, O house of Israel?
43
No, you took up the tent of Moloch and the star of your god Rephan, the images that you made to worship. So I will deport you beyond Babylon!
Exodus 16:2
The entire Israelite community grumbled against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness.
Exodus 16:35
The Israelites ate manna for 40 years, until they came to an inhabited land. They ate manna until they reached the border of the land of Canaan.
Numbers 14:22
none of the men who have seen My glory and the signs I performed in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tested Me these 10 times and did not obey Me,
Numbers 14:33
Your children will be shepherds in the wilderness for 40 years and bear the penalty for your acts of unfaithfulness until all your corpses lie [scattered] in the wilderness.
Numbers 14:34
You will bear the consequences of your sins 40 years based on the number of the 40 days that you scouted the land, a year for each day. You will know My displeasure.
Deuteronomy 9:7
"Remember and do not forget how you provoked the LORD your God in the wilderness. You have been rebelling against the LORD from the day you left the land of Egypt until you reached this place.
Deuteronomy 9:21-24
21
I took the sinful calf you had made, burned it up, and crushed it, thoroughly grinding it to powder as [fine as] dust. Then I threw it into the stream that came down from the mountain.
22
"You continued to provoke the LORD at Taberah, Massah, and Kibroth-hattaavah.
23
When the LORD sent you from Kadesh-barnea, He said, 'Go up and possess the land I have given you'; you rebelled against the command of the LORD your God. You did not believe or obey Him.
24
You have been rebelling against the LORD ever since I have known you.
Nehemiah 9:16-21
16
But our ancestors acted arrogantly; they became stiff-necked and did not listen to Your commands.
17
They refused to listen and did not remember Your wonders You performed among them. They became stiff-necked and appointed a leader to return to their slavery in Egypt. But You are a forgiving God, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in faithful love, and You did not abandon them.
18
Even after they had cast an image of a calf for themselves and said, "This is your God who brought you out of Egypt," and they had committed terrible blasphemies,
19
You did not abandon them in the wilderness because of Your great compassion. During the day the pillar of cloud never turned away from them, guiding them on their journey. And during the night the pillar of fire illuminated the way they should go.
20
You sent Your good Spirit to instruct them. You did not withhold Your manna from their mouths, and You gave them water for their thirst.
21
You provided for them in the wilderness 40 years and they lacked nothing. Their clothes did not wear out, and their feet did not swell.
Psalm 78:17-42
17
But they continued to sin against Him, rebelling in the desert against the Most High.
18
They deliberately tested God, demanding the food they craved.
19
They spoke against God, saying, "Is God able to provide food in the wilderness?
20
Look! He struck the rock and water gushed out; torrents overflowed. But can He also provide bread or furnish meat for His people?"
21
Therefore, the LORD heard and became furious; then fire broke out against Jacob, and anger flared up against Israel
22
because they did not believe God or rely on His salvation.
23
He gave a command to the clouds above and opened the doors of heaven.
24
He rained manna for them to eat; He gave them grain from heaven.
25
People ate the bread of angels. He sent them an abundant supply of food.
26
He made the east wind blow in the skies and drove the south wind by His might.
27
He rained meat on them like dust, and winged birds like the sand of the seas.
28
He made [them] fall in His camp, all around His tent.
29
They ate and were completely satisfied, for He gave them what they craved.
30
Before they had satisfied their desire, while the food was still in their mouths,
31
God's anger flared up against them, and He killed some of their best men. He struck down Israel's choice young men.
32
Despite all this, they kept sinning and did not believe His wonderful works.
33
He made their days end in futility, their years in sudden disaster.
34
When He killed [some of] them, [the rest] began to seek Him; they repented and searched for God.
35
They remembered that God was their rock, the Most High God, their Redeemer.
36
But they deceived Him with their mouths, they lied to Him with their tongues,
37
their hearts were insincere toward Him, and they were unfaithful to His covenant.
38
Yet He was compassionate; He atoned for [their] guilt and did not destroy [them]. He often turned His anger aside and did not unleash all His wrath.
39
He remembered that they were [only] flesh, a wind that passes and does not return.
40
How often they rebelled against Him in the wilderness and grieved Him in the desert.
41
They constantly tested God and provoked the Holy One of Israel.
42
They did not remember His power [shown] on the day He redeemed them from the foe,
Psalm 95:8-11
8
"Do not harden your hearts as at Meribah, as on that day at Massah in the wilderness
9
where your fathers tested Me; they tried Me, though they had seen what I did.
10
For 40 years I was disgusted with that generation; I said, 'They are a people whose hearts go astray; they do not know My ways.'
11
So I swore in My anger, 'They will not enter My rest.'"
Psalm 106:13-29
13
They soon forgot His works and would not wait for His counsel.
14
They were seized with craving in the wilderness and tested God in the desert.
15
He gave them what they asked for, but sent a wasting disease among them.
16
In the camp they were envious of Moses and of Aaron, the LORD's holy one.
17
The earth opened up and swallowed Dathan; it covered the assembly of Abiram.
18
Fire blazed throughout their assembly; flames consumed the wicked.
19
At Horeb they made a calf and worshiped the cast metal image.
20
They exchanged their glory for the image of a grass-eating ox.
21
They forgot God their Savior, who did great things in Egypt,
22
wonderful works in the land of Ham, awe-inspiring deeds at the Red Sea.
23
So He said He would have destroyed them-- if Moses His chosen one had not stood before Him in the breach to turn His wrath away from destroying [them].
24
They despised the pleasant land and did not believe His promise.
25
They grumbled in their tents and did not listen to the LORD's voice.
26
So He raised His hand against them [with an oath] that He would make them fall in the desert
27
and would disperse their descendants among the nations, scattering them throughout the lands.
28
They aligned themselves with Baal of Peor and ate sacrifices offered to lifeless gods.
29
They provoked the LORD with their deeds, and a plague broke out against them.
Ezekiel 20:10-17
10
"So I brought them out of the land of Egypt and led them into the wilderness.
11
Then I gave them My statutes and explained My ordinances to them-- the person who does them will live by them.
12
I also gave them My Sabbaths to serve as a sign between Me and them, so they will know that I am the LORD who sets them apart as holy.
13
"But the house of Israel rebelled against Me in the wilderness. They did not follow My statutes and they rejected My ordinances-- the person who does them will live by them. They also completely profaned My Sabbaths. So I considered pouring out My wrath on them in the wilderness to put an end to them.
14
But I acted because of My name, so that it would not be profaned in the eyes of the nations in whose sight I had brought them out.
15
However, I swore to them in the wilderness that I would not bring them into the land I had given [them]-- the most beautiful of all lands, flowing with milk and honey--
16
because they rejected My ordinances, profaned My Sabbaths, and did not follow My statutes. For their hearts went after their idols.
17
But I spared them from destruction and did not bring them to an end in the wilderness.
Amos 5:25
"House of Israel, was it sacrifices and grain offerings that you presented to Me during the 40 years in the wilderness?
Amos 5:26
But you have taken up Sakkuthyour king and Kaiwanyour star god, images you have made for yourselves.
1 Corinthians 10:1-10
1
Now I want you to know, brothers, that our fathers were all under the cloud, all passed through the sea,
2
and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea.
3
They all ate the same spiritual food,
4
and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank from a spiritual rock that followed them, and that rock was Christ.
5
But God was not pleased with most of them, for they were struck down in the desert.
6
Now these things became examples for us, so that we will not desire evil as they did.
7
Don't become idolaters as some of them were; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and got up to play.
8
Let us not commit sexual immorality as some of them did, and in a single day 23,000 people fell dead.
9
Let us not tempt Christ as some of them did, and were destroyed by snakes.
10
Nor should we complain as some of them did, and were killed by the destroyer.
Hebrews 3:7-10
7
Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says: Today, if you hear His voice,
8
do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the desert,
9
where your fathers tested Me, tried [ Me], and saw My works
10
for 40 years. Therefore I was provoked with this generation and said, "They always go astray in their hearts, and they have not known My ways."
Hebrews 3:16-19
16
For who heard and rebelled? Wasn't it really all who came out of Egypt under Moses?
17
And with whom was He "provoked for 40 years"? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the desert?
18
And to whom did He "swear that they would not enter His rest," if not those who disobeyed?
19
So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief.
