1:2 It is eleven days` [journey] from Horeb by the way of Mount Seir to Kadesh-barnea.
1:3 It happened in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, that Moses spoke to the children of Israel, according to all that Yahweh had given him in commandment to them;
1:7 turn you, and take your journey, and go to the hill-country of the Amorites, and to all [the places] near thereunto, in the Arabah, in the hill-country, and in the lowland, and in the South, and by the sea-shore, the land of the Canaanites, and Lebanon, as far as the great river, the river Euphrates.
1:11 Yahweh, the God of your fathers, make you a thousand times as many as you are, and bless you, as he has promised you!
1:12 How can I myself alone bear your encumbrance, and your burden, and your strife?
1:14 You answered me, and said, The thing which you have spoken is good [for us] to do.
1:15 So I took the heads of your tribes, wise men, and known, and made them heads over you, captains of thousands, and captains of hundreds, and captains of fifties, and captains of tens, and officers, according to your tribes.
1:16 I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear [the causes] between your brothers, and judge righteously between a man and his brother, and the sojourner who is with him.
1:17 You shall not show partiality in judgment; you shall hear the small and the great alike; you shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God`s: and the cause that is too hard for you you shall bring to me, and I will hear it.
1:18 I commanded you at that time all the things which you should do.
1:19 We journeyed from Horeb, and went through all that great and terrible wilderness which you saw, by the way to the hill-country of the Amorites, as Yahweh our God commanded us; and we came to Kadesh-barnea.
1:22 You came near to me everyone of you, and said, Let us send men before us, that they may search the land for us, and bring us word again of the way by which we must go up, and the cities to which we shall come.
1:23 The thing pleased me well; and I took twelve men of you, one man for every tribe:
1:24 and they turned and went up into the hill-country, and came to the valley of Eshcol, and spied it out.
1:26 Yet you wouldn`t go up, but rebelled against the commandment of Yahweh your God:
1:28 Where are we going up? our brothers have made our heart to melt, saying, The people are greater and taller than we; the cities are great and fortified up to the sky; and moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakim there.
1:29 Then I said to you, Don`t dread, neither be afraid of them.
1:32 Yet in this thing you didn`t believe Yahweh your God,
1:37 Also Yahweh was angry with me for your sakes, saying, You also shall not go in there:
1:38 Joshua the son of Nun, who stands before you, he shall go in there: encourage you him; for he shall cause Israel to inherit it.
1:39 Moreover your little ones, whom you said should be a prey, and your children, who this day have no knowledge of good or evil, they shall go in there, and to them will I give it, and they shall possess it.
1:41 Then you answered and said to me, We have sinned against Yahweh, we will go up and fight, according to all that Yahweh our God commanded us. You girded on every man his weapons of war, and were forward to go up into the hill-country.
1:43 So I spoke to you, and you didn`t listen; but you rebelled against the commandment of Yahweh, and were presumptuous, and went up into the hill-country.
1:44 The Amorites, who lived in that hill-country, came out against you, and chased you, as bees do, and beat you down in Seir, even to Hormah.
1:46 So you abode in Kadesh many days, according to the days that you abode [there].
