1:34 When the Lord heard you, he became angry and made this vow:70 1:35 “Not a single person71 of this evil generation will see the good land that I promised to give to your ancestors! 1:36 The exception is Caleb son of Jephunneh;72 he will see it and I will give him and his descendants the territory on which he has walked, because he has wholeheartedly followed me.”73 1:37 As for me, the Lord was also angry with me on your account. He said, “You also will not be able to go there. 1:38 However, Joshua son of Nun, your assistant,74 will go. Encourage him, because he will enable Israel to inherit the land.75 1:39 Also, your infants, who you thought would die on the way,76 and your children, who as yet do not know good from bad,77 will go there; I will give them the land and they will possess it. 1:40 But as for you,78 turn back and head for the desert by the way to the Red Sea.”79
