22 And at Taberah, and at Massah, and at Kibroth-hattaavah, ye made YHWH wroth.
22 Also in the burning, and in the temptation, and at the graves of lust, ye provoked the Lord.
22 And in heat, and in trials, and at the Kabrey di ragrigtha the people lusted for meat; you provoked the LORD to anger.
23 And when YHWH sent you from Kadesh-barnea, saying: 'Go up and possess the land which I have given you'; then ye rebelled against the commandment of the YHWH your God, and ye believed Him not, nor hearkened to His voice.
23 Likewise when the LORD sent you from Rakim-gia, and said to you, Go up and possess the land which I have given you; then you rebelled against the commandment of the LORD your God, and you did not believe him, nor hearken to his voice.
24 Ye have been rebellious against YHWH from the day that I knew you.--
24 Ye were disobedient in the things relating to the Lord from the day in which he became known to you.
24 Instead, you were ever rebellious, from the day when I first began to know you.
25 So I fell down before YHWH the forty days and forty nights that I fell down; because the YHWH had said He would destroy you.
25 And I prayed before the Lord forty days and forty nights, the number that I prayed before, for the Lord said that he would utterly destroy you.
25 Thus I prayed before the LORD forty days and forty nights, because the LORD had said he would destroy you.
26 And I prayed unto YHWH, and said: 'O Lord GOD, destroy not Thy people and Thine inheritance, that Thou hast redeemed through Thy greatness, that Thou hast brought forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand.
26 And praying, I said: ‘O Lord God, do not destroy your people and your inheritance, whom you have redeemed in your greatness, whom you have led away from Egypt with a strong hand.
27 Remember Thy servants, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; look not unto the stubbornness of this people, nor to their wickedness, nor to their sin;
27 Remember Abraam, and Isaac, and Jacob thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thyself: look not upon the hardness of heart of this people, and their impieties, and their sins.
27 Remember your servants, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Do not look upon the stubbornness of this people, nor upon their wickedness and sinfulness.
28 lest the land whence Thou broughtest us out say: Because YHWH was not able to bring them into the land which He promised unto them, and because He hated them, He hath brought them out to slay them in the wilderness.
28 Otherwise, perhaps the inhabitants of the land, out of which you have led us, may say: “The Lord was not able to lead them into the land, which he promised to them. And he hated them; therefore, he led them out, so that he might put them to death in the wilderness.”
29 Yet they are Thy people and Thine inheritance, that Thou didst bring out by Thy great power and by Thy outstretched arm.'
29 And these are thy people and thy portion, whom thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt with thy great strength, and with thy mighty hand, and with thy high arm.
29 These are your people and your inheritance, whom you have led out by your great strength, and with your outstretched arm.’ ”
