    A. Numbers 14:22-23, 34

    not one of the men who have seen My glory and the signs I performed in Egypt and in the wilderness-yet have tested Me and disobeyed Me these ten times - not one will ever see the land I swore to give their fathers. None of those who have treated Me with contempt will see it.

    34. For forty years-one year for each of the forty days you explored the land-you will suffer for your sins and know what it is like to have me against you.'
