Deuteronomy 1:34-36

Context
Judgment at Kadesh Barnea

1:34 When the Lord heard you, he became angry and made this vow: 1  1:35 “Not a single person 2  of this evil generation will see the good land that I promised to give to your ancestors! 1:36 The exception is Caleb son of Jephunneh; 3  he will see it and I will give him and his descendants the territory on which he has walked, because he has wholeheartedly followed me.” 4 

1 tn Heb “and swore,” i.e., made an oath or vow.

2 tn Heb “Not a man among these men.”

3 sn Caleb had, with Joshua, brought back to Israel a minority report from Canaan urging a conquest of the land, for he was confident of the Lord’s power (Num 13:6, 8, 16, 30; 14:30, 38).

4 tn Heb “the Lord.” The pronoun (“me”) has been employed in the translation, since it sounds strange to an English reader for the Lord to speak about himself in third person.
