27 “How long will this wicked community grumble
against me? I have heard the complaints of these
grumbling Israelites. 28 So tell them, ‘As surely as
I live, declares the LORD, I will do to you the very
thing I heard you say: 29 In this wilderness your
bodies will fall—every one of you twenty years
old or more who was counted in the census and
who has grumbled against me. 30 Not one of you
will enter the land I swore with uplifted hand to
make your home, except Caleb son of
Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun.
1 Thesalonians 5:18
give thanks in all circumstances; for this is
God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
You intended to harm me, but God intended it
for good to accomplish what is now being
done, the saving of many lives.
A psalm. For giving grateful praise.
1 Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him
with joyful songs.
3 Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us,
and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts
with praise; give thanks to him and praise his
5 For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
