and sware
Deuteronomy 2:14
The time we spent traveling from Kadesh-barnea until we crossed the Zered Valley was 38 years until the entire generation of fighting men had perished from the camp, as the LORD had sworn to them.
Deuteronomy 2:15
Indeed, the LORD's hand was against them, to eliminate them from the camp until they had all perished.
Numbers 14:22-30
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,
will ever see the land I swore to [give] their fathers. None of those who have despised Me will see it.
But since My servant Caleb has a different spirit and has followed Me completely, I will bring him into the land where he has gone, and his descendants will inherit it.
Since the Amalekites and Canaanites are living in the lowlands, turn back tomorrow and head for the wilderness in the direction of the Red Sea."
Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron:
"How long [must I endure] this evil community that keeps complaining about Me? I have heard the Israelites' complaints that they make against Me.
Tell them: As surely as I live, declares the LORD, I will do to you exactly as I heard you say.
Your corpses will fall in this wilderness-- all of you who were registered [in the census], the entire number of you 20 years old or more-- because you have complained about Me.
I swear that none of you will enter the land I promised to settle you in, except Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun.
Numbers 32:8-13
That's what your fathers did when I sent them from Kadesh-barnea to see the land.
After they went up as far as Eshcol Valley and saw the land, they discouraged the Israelites from entering the land the LORD had given them.
So the Lord's anger burned that day, and He swore an oath:
'Because they did not follow Me completely, none of the men 20 years old or more who came up from Egypt will see the land I swore [to give] Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob--
none except Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite and Joshua son of Nun, because they did follow the LORD completely.'
The Lord's anger burned against Israel, and He made them wander in the wilderness 40 years until the whole generation that had done what was evil in the LORD's sight was gone.
Psalm 95:11
So I swore in My anger, 'They will not enter My rest.'"
Ezekiel 20:15
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--
Hebrews 3:8-11
do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the desert,
where your fathers tested Me, tried [ Me], and saw My works
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."
So I swore in My anger, "They will not enter My rest."
