12 Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite, and Joshua the son of Nun; for they have wholly followed the LORD.

13 And the LORD's anger was kindled against Israel, and he made them n wander in the wilderness forty years, until o all the generation that had done evil in the sight of the LORD was consumed.

14 And behold, ye are risen up in your fathers' stead, an increase p of sinful men, to augment q yet the fierce anger of the LORD toward Israel.

15 For if r ye turn away from after him, he will yet again leave s them in the wilderness; and ye shall destroy all this people.
