Again and again they appealed to Rockycana to be their head, to act up to his words, and to lead them out to the promised land.

As they had acted in Egypt, so they acted at the foot of Sinai, and again Jahveh could not bring Himself to destroy them; He confined Himself to decreeing that none of those who had offended Him should enter the Promised Land, and He extended His goodness to their children.
