Numbers 14:2-11

2And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this wilderness!

 3And wherefore hath the LORD brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt?

 4And they said one to another, Let us make a captain, and let us return into Egypt.

 5Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel.

 6And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes:

 7And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land.

 8If the LORD delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.

 9Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not.

 10But all the congregation bade stone them with stones. And the glory of the LORD appeared in the tabernacle of the congregation before all the children of Israel.

 11And the LORD said unto Moses, How long will this people provoke me? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them?
