Now I want (A)to remind you, although you once fully knew it, that (B)Jesus, who saved[a] a people out of the land of Egypt, (C)afterward destroyed those who did not believe.

64 (A)But among these there was not one of those listed by Moses and Aaron the priest, who had listed the people of Israel in the wilderness of Sinai. 65 For the Lord had said of them, (B)“They shall die in the wilderness.” Not one of them was left, (C)except Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun.

16 For (A)who were those who heard and yet rebelled? Was it not (B)all those who left Egypt led by Moses? 17 And with whom was he provoked for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, (C)whose bodies fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom did he swear that (D)they would not enter his rest, but to those who were disobedient? 19 So we see that (E)they were unable to enter because of unbelief.

Therefore, while the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us fear lest any of you should seem (F)to have failed to reach it. For good news came to us just as to them, but the message they heard did not benefit them, because (G)they were not united by faith with those who listened.[a]

Warning Against Idolatry

10 For I do not want you to be unaware, brothers,[a] that our fathers were all under (A)the cloud, and all (B)passed through the sea, and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, and (C)all ate the same (D)spiritual food, and (E)all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank from the spiritual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was Christ. Nevertheless, with most of them God was not pleased, for (F)they were overthrown[b] in the wilderness.

Now these things took place as examples for us, that we might not desire evil as (G)they did. (H)Do not be idolaters (I)as some of them were; as it is written, (J)“The people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play.” (K)We must not indulge in sexual immorality (L)as some of them did, and (M)twenty-three thousand fell in a single day. We must not put Christ[c] to the test, (N)as some of them did and (O)were destroyed by serpents, 10 nor grumble, (P)as some of them did and (Q)were destroyed by (R)the Destroyer. 11 Now these things happened to them as an example, but (S)they were written down for our instruction, (T)on whom the end of the ages has come. 12 Therefore (U)let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall.

22 (A)none of the men who have seen my glory and my signs that I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and yet have put me to the test these (B)ten times and have not obeyed my voice, 23 (C)shall see the land that I swore to give to their fathers. And none of those who despised me shall see it. 24 But my servant (D)Caleb, because he has a different spirit and has (E)followed me fully, I will bring into the land into which he went, and his descendants shall possess it. 25 (F)Now, since the Amalekites and the Canaanites dwell in the valleys, (G)turn tomorrow and set out for the wilderness by the way to the Red Sea.”

26 And the Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 27 “How long shall (H)this wicked congregation grumble against me? (I)I have heard the grumblings of the people of Israel, which they grumble against me. 28 Say to them, (J)‘As I live, declares the Lord, (K)what you have said in my hearing I will do to you: 29 (L)your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness, and (M)of all your number, listed in the census (N)from twenty years old and upward, who have grumbled against me, 30 not one shall come into the land where I (O)swore that I would make you dwell, (P)except Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun. 31 (Q)But your little ones, who you said would become a prey, I will bring in, and they shall know the land that (R)you have rejected. 32 But as for you, (S)your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness. 33 And your children (T)shall be shepherds in the wilderness (U)forty years and shall (V)suffer for your faithlessness, until the last of your dead bodies lies in the wilderness. 34 (W)According to the number of the days in which you spied out the land, (X)forty days, a year for each day, you shall bear your iniquity forty years, and you shall know my displeasure.’ 35 (Y)I, the Lord, have spoken. Surely this will I do to all (Z)this wicked congregation who are gathered together against me: in this wilderness they shall come to a full end, and there they shall die.”

36 (AA)And the men whom Moses sent to spy out the land, who returned and made all the congregation grumble against him by bringing up a bad report about the land— 37 the men who brought up a bad report of the land—(AB)died by plague before the Lord.
