29 In this wilderness your bodies will fall(A)—every one of you twenty years old or more(B) who was counted in the census(C) and who has grumbled against me. 30 Not one of you will enter the land(D) I swore with uplifted hand(E) to make your home, except Caleb son of Jephunneh(F) and Joshua son of Nun.(G) 31 As for your children that you said would be taken as plunder, I will bring them in to enjoy the land you have rejected.(H) 32 But as for you, your bodies will fall(I) in this wilderness. 33 Your children will be shepherds here for forty years,(J) suffering for your unfaithfulness, until the last of your bodies lies in the wilderness. 34 For forty years(K)—one year for each of the forty days you explored the land(L)—you will suffer for your sins and know what it is like to have me against you.’ 35 I, the Lord, have spoken, and I will surely do these things(M) to this whole wicked community, which has banded together against me. They will meet their end in this wilderness; here they will die.(N)
