Numbers 14:21

Context

Numbers 14:28

Context
14:28 Say to them, ‘As I live, 2  says 3  the Lord, I will surely do to you just what you have spoken in my hearing. 4 

1 sn This is the oath formula, but in the Pentateuch it occurs here and in v. 28.

2 sn Here again is the oath that God swore in his wrath, an oath he swore by himself, that they would not enter the land. “As the Lord lives,” or “by the life of the Lord,” are ways to render it.

3 tn The word נְאֻם (nÿum) is an “oracle.” It is followed by the subjective genitive: “the oracle of the Lord” is equal to saying “the Lord says.”

4 tn Heb “in my ears.”

sn They had expressed the longing to have died in the wilderness, and not in war. God will now give them that. They would not say to God “your will be done,” so he says to them, “your will be done” (to borrow from C. S. Lewis).
