Numbers 14:11–21

11 And the Lord said unto Moses, How long will this people rprovoke me? and how long will it be ere they sbelieve me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them? 12 I will smite them with the pestilence, and tdisinherit them, and uwill make of thee a greater nation and mightier than they. 13 And wMoses 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 xthey have heard that thou Lord art among this people, that thou Lord art seen face to face, and that ythy cloud standeth 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 zable to bring this people into the land which he sware unto them, therefore he hath slain them in the wilderness. 17 And now, I beseech thee, let the power of my Lord be great, according as thou hast spoken, saying, 18 The Lord is alongsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, bvisiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation. 19 cPardon, I beseech thee, the iniquity of this people daccording unto the greatness of thy mercy, and eas thou hast forgiven this people, from Egypt even ||until now. 20 And the Lord said, I have pardoned faccording to thy word: 21 But as truly as I live, gall the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord.
