1 Moses' speech in the end of the fortieth year, briefly rehearsing the story, 6 of God's promise, 13 giving them officers, 19 of sending the spies to search the land, 34 of God's anger for their incredulity, 41 and disobedience.
1:1 ¶ These [are] the words which Moses spoke to all Israel on the east side of Jordan in the wilderness, in the plain over against Suf, between Paran, and Tophel, and Laban, and Hazeroth, and Dizahab.
1:2 ([There are] eleven days [journey] from Horeb by the way of mount Seir to Kadesh-barnea.)
1:3 And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first [day] of the month, [that] Moses spoke to the children of Israel, according to all that the LORD had given him in commandment to them;
1:4 After he had slain Sihon the king of the Amorites, who dwelt in Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, who dwelt at Astaroth in Edrei:
1:5 On the east side of Jordan, in the land of Moab, began Moses to declare this law, saying,
1:7 Turn you, and take your journey, and go to the mount of the Amorites, and to all [the places] nigh to it, in the plain, on the hills, and in the vale, and in the south, and by the sea-side, to the land of the Canaanites, and to Lebanon, to the great river, the river Euphrates.
1:9 ¶ And I spoke to you at that time, saying, I am not able to bear you myself alone:
1:12 How can I alone bear your encumbrance, and your burden, and your strife?
1:13 Take ye wise men, and understanding, and known among your tribes, and I will make them rulers over you.
1:14 And ye answered me, and said, The thing which thou hast spoken [is] good [for us] to do.
1:15 So I took the chief of your tribes, wise men, and known, and made them heads over you, captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, and captains over fifties, and captains over tens, and officers among your tribes.
1:16 And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear [the causes] between your brethren, and judge righteously between [every] man and his brother, and the stranger [that is] with him.
1:17 Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; [but] ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment [is] God's: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring to me, and I will hear it.
1:18 And I commanded you at that time all the things which ye should do.
1:19 ¶ And when we departed from Horeb, we went through all that great and terrible wilderness, which ye saw by the way of the mountain of the Amorites, as the LORD our God commanded us; and we came to Kadesh-barnea.
1:22 ¶ And ye came near to me every one of you, and said, We will send men before us, and they shall explore the land for us, and bring us word again by what way we must go up, and into what cities we shall come.
1:23 And the saying pleased me well: and I took twelve men of you, one of a tribe:
1:24 And they turned and ascended the mountain, and came to the valley of Eshcol, and explored it.
1:28 Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our heart, saying, The people [are] greater and taller than we; the cities [are] great and walled up to heaven; and moreover, we have seen the sons of the Anakims there.
1:29 Then I said to you, Dread not, neither be afraid of them.
1:33 Who went in the way before you, to search out for you a place to pitch your tents [in], in fire by night, to show you by what way ye should go, and in a cloud by day.
1:35 Surely there shall not one of these men of this evil generation see that good land, which I swore to give to your fathers,
1:38 [But] Joshua the son of Nun, who standeth before thee, he shall go in thither. Encourage him: for he shall cause Israel to inherit it.
1:39 Moreover, your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, and your children, which in that day had no knowledge between good and evil, they shall go in thither, and to them will I give it, and they shall possess it.
1:40 But [as for] you, turn ye, and take your journey into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea.
1:41 Then ye answered and said to me, We have sinned against the LORD, we will go up and fight, according to all that the LORD our God commanded us. And when ye had girded on every man his weapons of war, ye were ready to ascend the hill.
1:44 And the Amorites, who dwelt on that mountain, came out against you, and chased you, as bees do, and destroyed you in Seir, [even] to Hormah.
1:46 So ye abode in Kadesh many days, according to the days that ye abode [there].
