Bible Commentary for Numbers 14:27

Wesley's Notes for Numbers 14:27


14:25 In the valley - Beyond the mountain, at the foot whereof they now were, #Num 14:40|. And this clause is added, either As an aggravation of Israel's misery and punishment, that being now ready to enter and take possession of the land, they are forced to go back into the wilderness or As an argument to oblige them more willingly to obey the following command of returning into the wilderness, because their enemies were very near them, and severed from them only by that Idumean mountain, and, if they did not speedily depart, their enemies would fall upon them, and so the evil which before they causelessly feared would come upon them; they, their wives and their children, would become a prey to the Amalekites and Canaanites, because God would not assist nor defend them. By the way of the Red - sea - That leadeth to the Red - sea, and to Egypt, the place whither you desire to return.

14:28 As ye have spoken - When you wickedly wished you might die in the wilderness.
