14. And Moles went out, and told the people the words of the Lo R D , and gathered the seventy men of the elders of the people, and set them round about the tabernacle.
25 And the Lord came down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and took of the spirit that ivas upon him, and gave ;'/ unto the seventy elders. And it came to pass, that when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease.
26 But there remained two of the men in the camp, the name of the one was Eldad, ana the name of the other Medad: and the spirit rested upon them; aud they mere of them that were written, but went not out unto the tabernacle: and they prophesied in the camp.
27 And the/e ran a young man and told Moles, and (aid, Lldad and Medad do prophesy in the camp.
28 And Joshua the (on of Nun, the servant of Moles, one of his young men, answered and said, My lord Moses, forbid them.
29 And Moses said unto him, Enviest thou for my sake ? would God that all the Lord's people were prophets, an J that the Lo R D would put his spirit upontheml
30 And Moses gat him into the camp, he and the elders of Israel.
31 «fl And there went forth a wind from the Lo R D , and brought quails from the sea, and let them fall by the camp, as it were a day's journey on this fide, and as it were a day's journey on the other side, round about the camp, and as it were two cubits high, upon the face of the earth.
32 And the people stood up all that day, and all that night, and all the next day, and they gathered the quails: he that gathered least gathered ten homers: and they spread them all abroad for themselves round about the camp.
33 And while the flesli 'was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath of the Lo R D was kindled against the people, and the Lo R D smote the people with a very great plague.
34. And he called the name of that place Kibroth-hattaavah: because there they buried the people that lusted.

Miriam and Aaron rebuked. NUMBERS Spies sent lo search Canaan.
2 And they said, Hath the Lord indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the Lo v. o heard it.
3 (Now the man Moses tvas very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)
4. And the Lord spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the congregation. And they three came out.
5 And the Lord came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam: and they both came forth.
6 And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, / the Lord will make myself known unto him in a vision, an.i will speak unto him in a dream.
7 My servant Moses it not so, who it faithful in all mine house.
8 With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the Lord shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?
9 And the anger of the Lord was kindled against them; and he departed.
10 ^ And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam became leprous, -white as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam,and,behold, she was leprous.
> 1 And Aaron said unto Moses, Alas, my lord, I beseech thee, lay not the sin upon us, wherein we have done foolishly, and wherein we have sinned.
11 Let her not be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he cometh out of his mother's womb.
13 And Moses cried unto the Lord, saying, Heal her now, O God, I beseech thee.
14 ^y And the Lord said unto Moses, If her father had but spit in her face, should she not be ashamed seven days? let her be (hut out from the camp seven days, and after that let her be received in again.
15 And Miriam was shut out from the camp seven days: and the people journeyed not till Miriam was brought in agam.

AND the Lord spake unto Mose saying,
2 Send thou men, that theymay scare the land of Canaan, which I give un the children of Israel: of every tribe < their fathers shall ye send a man, evei one a ruler among them.

17 ^ And Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, and said unto them. Get you up this <uiay southward, and go up into the mountain:
18 And fee the land, what it it; and the people that dwelleth therein, whetherthey be strongorweak, fewormany;
19 And what the land it that they dwell in, whether it be good or bad; and what cities they be that they dwell in, whether in tents, or in strong holds;
20 And what the land it, whether it be fat or lean, whether there be wood therein, or not. And be ye of good courage, and bring of the fruit ofthe land. Now the time tvat the time of the first ripe grapes.

55 And they came unto the brook of IfeoL, and cut down from thence a WBsch with one cluster of grapes, and ±w bare it between two upon a staff: iiii tiny trsstgii of the pomegranates, æd of the figs.
H The place was called the brook Ifecol, because of the cluster of grapes »kkh the children of Israel cut down torn thence.
15 And they returned from searching of tie land after forty days.
16 And they went and came to MoSs, aad to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, unto fie wilderness of Paran, to Kadefh; and broueht back word unto them, and unro afl the congregation, and (hewed them the fruit of the land.
s7 And they told him', and said, We ame unto the land whither thou sentest 05, and surely it floweth with milk and konsy; and this is the fruit of it.
it Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are vailed, and very great: and moreover we iaw the children of Anak there.
»9 The Amalekites dwell in the land cf the south: and the Hittites, and the }ebu£tes,and the Amorites,dwell in the mountains', and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan. $0 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.
31 But the men that went up with him said. We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.
31 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched untothe children of Israel, saying, The land through which we have gone to search h it a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof j and all the people that we iasr in it are men of a great stature.

mured against Moses, and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had died,in the land df 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 os Jephunneh, ivhiehiuere 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, it an exceeding good land.
8 If the Lord delight inus, 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 ;'/ with us: fear them not.
10 But all the congregation bade stone them with stones: and the glory of the Lo R D appeared in the tabernacle of the congregation, before all the children of Israel.
11 And the Lord said unto Moses, How long will this people provoke me? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them?
12 I will smite them with the pestilence, and disinherit them, and will make of thee a greater nation, and mightier than they.
13 And Moses said unto the Lord, Then the Egyptians shall hear it, (for thou broughtest up this people in thy might from among them;)
14 And they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land: for they have heard that thou Lo R D art among this people, that thou Lo R D art seen face to face, and that thy cloud standtth over them, and that thou goest before them, by day time in a pillar of a cloud, and in a pillar of fire by night.
15 Now if thou shalt kill all this people as one man, then the nations which have heard the fame of thee will speak, saying,

16 Because the Lord was not able to 1 bring this people into the land which he '■ swaie unto them, therefore he hath slain them in the wilderness.
17 And now, I beseech thee, let the power of my Lo R D be great, according as thou hast spoken, saying,
18 The Lord is long suffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation.
19 Pardon, I beseech thee, the iniquity of this people, according unto the
f;reatneis of thy mercy, and as thou halt orgiven this people, from Egypt, even until now.
20 And the Lord said, I have pardoned according to thy word:
21 But as truly as I live, all the earth (hall be filled with theglory of the Lo R D .
22 Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my miracles which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, have tempted me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice;
23 Surely they sliall not fee the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it:
24. But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and siatli followed me fully, him will I bring into the land, whereiitto he went; and his feed shall possess it.
25 (Now the Amalekites, and the Canaanites dwelt in the valley.) To morrow turn you, and getyou into the wilderness, by the way ot the Red sea.
26 And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, shying,
27 How long jhail I bear ivith this evii congregation,which murmuragainst me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me.
28 Say unto them, As truly as I live, faith the Lord, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:
29 Your carcases sliall fall in this wilderness: aud all that were numbered of yon, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me,
30 Doubtless ye sliall not come into the land concerting which I sware to make vou dwell therein, save Caleb the son of jeplmnneh, and Jostiuathe son of Nun.
31 But your little ones which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in,
and they sliall know the land which have despised.
32 hut M for you, your carcases tfc sl-.r.ll fall in this wilderness.
33 And your children sliall wander the wilderness forty years, and b< your whoredoms, until your carcases wasted in the wilderness.
34 After the number of the days which ye searched the land, eitrn foi days, each day for a year, sliall ye (x your iniquities, even forty years, and shall know my breach of promise.
35 I the Lor D have said, I will sure do it unto all this evil congregation tl are gathered together against me: this wilderness they sliall be consume and there they sliall die.
36 And the men, which Moses sent search the land, who returned, and ma< all the congregation to murmur aguii him, by bringing up a slander upon ti land,
37 Even those men that did bring v the evil report upon the land, diesl 1: the plague before the Lord.
;8 But Joll'.ua the son os Nun, nr Caleb -the son of Jephunneh, ivAu lucre cf the men that went to sean the land, lived still.
39 Anil Mosrs told these sayings vint all the children of Israel: and the pw pie mourned greatly.
40 And they rose up early in the mor:i ing, snd gat them up into the top ot ti' mountain, laying, Lo, we br here, an will go up unto the place which the Lor hath promised : for we have finned.
4.1 And Moses said. Wherefore no: do ye tranlgrets the commandment 0 the Lor n • but it (hall not prosper.
42 Go not up, for the Lord is no among you; that ye be not smittei before your cneivT.es.
43 For the Amalekites, and the Ca naanites are there before yen, and y sliall fall by the sword: because ye an turned away from the Lord, there, fore the Lord will not be with you.
44 But they presumed to go up unt' the hill top-, nevertheless the ark of t lit covenant of the Lord, and Moses, departed not out of the camp.
4; Then the Amalekite.; came down, and the Canaanites which dwelt in thai hill, and smote them, and discomfited them, even unto Hormah.
