SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:23 Y cuando el SEÑOR os envió desde Cades-barnea, diciendo: Subid y heredad la tierra que yo os he dado; también fuisteis rebeldes al dicho del SEÑOR vuestro Dios, y no le creisteis, ni escuchasteis a su voz.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 23. Likewise when the Lord sent you from Kadeshbarnea , etc.] From whence the spies were sent to search the land, though previous to it they had the following order to go up and possess it; (see Numbers 32:8 Deuteronomy 1:19-21) saying, go up and possess the land which I have given you ; this they were bid to do, before they desired the spies might be sent to search it first; and after they had returned and made their report, they were encouraged to go up and take possession of it: then ye rebelled against the commandment of the Lord your God; refusing to go up into it: and ye believed him not ; that he would cast out and destroy the inhabitants of it, and put them into the possession of it; which they distrusted by reason of the gigantic stature of some that dwelt in it, and their fortified cities: nor hearkened to his voice ; whether commanding or encouraging.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 7-29 - That the Israelites might have no pretence to think that God brough them to Canaan for their righteousness, Moses shows what a miracle of mercy it was, that they had not been destroyed in the wilderness. It is good for us often to remember against ourselves, with sorrow and shame our former sins; that we may see how much we are indebted to fre grace, and may humbly own that we never merited any thing but wrath an the curse at God's hand. For so strong is our propensity to pride, tha it will creep in under one pretence or another. We are ready to fanc that our righteousness has got for us the special favour of the Lord though in reality our wickedness is more plain than our weakness. But when the secret history of every man's life shall be brought forth a the day of judgment, all the world will be proved guilty before God. A present, One pleads for us before the mercy-seat, who not only fasted but died upon the cross for our sins; through whom we may approach though self-condemned sinners, and beseech for undeserved mercy and for eternal life, as the gift of God in Him. Let us refer all the victory all the glory, and all the praise, to Him who alone bringeth salvation __________________________________________________________________
